Step 30: On the right side of the body, draw a long curved shape for the tail. You can make the tail as long or as short as you'd like. You can also leave it out altogether. Make sure to not overlap the lines that make up the hand as you draw the werewolf's tail.

Step 31: For a cleaner look, erase as much as you can of the initial guide lines. Don't worry about erasing all of the guides. It's okay to leave some behind. Re-draw any final sketch lines you may have accidentally erased.

Final Step: Add some shading to your werewolf drawing to give it more dimension and volume. Use a dark value around the eyes to make them stand out. Pick the direction of the light source when shading so that the shadows are consistent with it. Vary the pressure on your pencil to get different degrees of tonal value.

Add a cast shadow underneath. This helps ground the werewolf so it doesn't appear to be floating.

You can add even more value throughout your werewolf drawing for extra detail. Werewolves are fictional creatures, so you can shade yours however you'd like. You can even color it! For this look, draw quick, short strokes all over the body to get a furry texture. Use shorter stokes when you add the value to the head as opposed to the longer strokes you will use for the body.

Shading can be very time- consuming, so be patient and take breaks. You can add the value to different sections of the body at a time to break up the shading process. As you shade, use strokes that go in the general direction of the werewolf's fur. Notice how the strokes wrap around the shoulder. Separate each individual stroke a bit so that the white of the paper comes through and emphasizes the furry texture. Darken the shadows as you go along so that they stand out.

For easier shading, just add a dark value all over for a black werewolf. You can also skip this step entirely for a white werewolf! Use a smooth medium or light value for the pants. Continue to add the quick, short strokes until the entire body is covered in them. Add more layers of value until you achieve the level of darkness that you want. Don't forget to pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace.
