Step 15 (optional): For a cleaner look, erase as much as you can of the initial guide lines. Don't worry about erasing all of them. It's okay to leave some behind. Re-draw any final sketch lines that you may have accidentally erased.
Final Step (optional): Add some value throughout your dragonfly drawing for extra detail. Vary the pressure on your pencil to get different degrees of tonal value. Try to add the value smoothly for a sleek feel instead of a rough texture. Don't forget to pause the video to draw at your own pace. Add some lines and value at the tips of the dragonfly's wings. It's always a good idea to use reference for accuracy. Draw a few more lines in the dragonfly's wings for more veins. Even though the wings are transparent, you can still add some value.
