how to make a white fur

I've been looking this forever but i didn't find it yet.
google ,yahoo ,bing ,cgsociety and yes i found tutorial of fur in photoshop but different colors and still cartoonist. in this tutorial i found my own question, 8months ago that how to make white fur?
i thought its a good time to make a thread in cgsociety. after all ita a biggest cg site and there is a threat still running about fur
"What's the best way to make thick, packed fur?"
and he want fur like kung fu panda and its exactly what i want but the title is not clear for others. if someone want to search it it would be difficult to find so that's why i created new thread (sorry if its wrong)
so back to the point
white fur like in kung fu panda or happy feet.

PS: i am using maya

What did you use for the above attempt? Maya fur?
  10 October 2012
its shave and haircut and for the body i used maya fur.
next i am gonna use puppet shader for both and see if that's work.

i am still rendering fur nothing else. (where is my shrink)

lights problem and many more

I would suggest that, before going any further, you change your lighting to one single light casting shadows. The look of the fur will drastically change with shadows on it and definitely look better.

thanks for the lighting tips but right now i didn't use any light and just for the simple i used maya render and shave & haircut.

problem with lights

so i did some work on fur and it looks fine for me but when i put some spot light on it it gets bad.
here is without spot light

and this one is with 3 spot light

spot light setting is just a
1) depth map shadow
2) in mental ray shadow section "use mental ray shadow map overrides
3) shave shadows "resolution 1500 and fuzz 30"

after i sample up to 4 and softness to 0.1 it look like this

looks like dark shades are gone but it still not looks so good and the render time is high.
7min to 31min.
any advice
