Step 15: Use the initial lines as guides to draw the top of the rhinoceros' body. Draw the rhinoceros' tail as a couple of vertical lines with short strokes at the end to represent hair.
Step 16: Again using the guides, draw the bottom of the rhinoceros' body. Include wrinkles throughout it for detail.
Step 17 (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.
Final Step (optional): You can add shading throughout the rhinoceros 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. Vary the pressure on your pencil to get different degrees of tonal value. Add a cast shadow underneath. This helps ground the rhino so it doesn't appear to be floating.
White rhinos are actually gray, so add more value to your drawing for extra detail. It's a good idea to reference to be as accurate as possible.
