    Honestly, the best thing you could do in that regard is study anatomy.
    Study human anatomy.
    Study animal anatomy.
    And then mesh them together.

    There's not one singular "style" to drawing anthro characters,
    so that kind of thing isn't going to really help, unless you already understand the basics of what you're combining.
    And even if you did have a book like that, it's just going to do you more harm than good, because then you're limited to that single person's art style instead of coming up with your own style and your own ideas.

    Also that'd be kinda torrenting/pirating and they frown upon stuff like that here.

    Those book thing doesn't help much. What you want are books that teach you the general stuffs like posing low, body anatomy, etc.

    Drawing Anthro is basically knowing how to break an animal head into shape and fit it on a human. Start from the basic and don't skip it unless you want to create an abomination.

    Abs and style should be the least of your worries atm. You should work on simpler things first. The form or skeleton of the body before focusing on minor details

    No. You don't have anything down. You really need to work more on anatomy. You should really look up references to use

    Use Google. I don't know why you're so against using it. It gives me a lot better of a selection than anything. Also mature filter is a godsend.

    Also i don't expect a masterpiece, never did, but your attitude about it is awful awful. Stop saying "oh I'm just starting out" yes, we can see that.
    Don't focus on style. It will come to you. Focus on drawing it right. Draw lots of humans and draw lots of animals.
