Step 15: Draw the llama's tail on the upper left side. Draw it smoother on top and shaggier at the bottom.
Step 16 (optional): For a cleaner look, erase as much as you can of the initial guide lines. Don't worry about erasing all the guides. It's okay to leave some behind. Also re-draw any of the final lines you accidentally erase and draw a few detail lines on the face.
Final Step (optional): You can add some shading to give your llama drawing more dimension and volume. 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. It's a good idea to use reference to be as accurate as possible. Add a cast shadow underneath the llama. This helps ground the llama so it doesn't appear to be floating.
You can add more value throughout your llama drawing for extra detail. Use strokes that have the same direction that the fur is supposed to have.
