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 the guides. It's okay to leave some behind. Re-draw any final sketch lines that you may have accidentally erased.
Final Step (optional): Add some shading to your hammerhead shark drawing to give it more dimension and volume. Pick the direction of the light source when shading so that the shadows are consistent with it. Don't worry about shading too much if you're also going to add more value to your drawing.
You can add more value throughout your drawing for extra detail. Vary the pressure on your pencil to get different degrees of tonal value. It's a good idea to use reference for a more accurate drawing. When you add the value, try using smooth, even strokes for a sleek feel instead of a rough texture. You can leave a portion along the middle of the hammerhead shark's body unshaded for a shiny, wet look. Don't forget to pause the "How to Draw a Hammerhead Shark" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
