Default Coloring and Adding Accents to Critters

I’m trying to learn how to do a better job coloring critters with Zig Real Brush markers. Looking for videos/tutorials/classes on shading and adding white accents. Does anyone know of anyone with good resources? Thanks in advance!

I sold my markers because I couldn't get them to blend well, so I'm sorry to be of no help there.  I think if you post this question in the General Stamping forum, you will get a lot of help.  Good luck, and have fun!

I am the last person who should reply since I have absolutely no
artistic talent. But since nobody else has chimed in with suggestions
I'll do my best to help.

I use Copic markers,
which are alcohol based and the only markers I've had luck using when I
want to color an image. I did a quick YouTube search and learned that
your Zig Real Brush markers are waterbased. It looks like they work best
using watercolor paper with a paint brush or water pen. Here are a
couple of examples:

Shading
and highlights are difficult for me as well. I have to imagine the sun
or other light shining from a corner of the page. Hopefully you'll find a
better explanation in one of the links below:

Links below as well. Sorry about the formatting. I can't figure out how to fix it.
