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. Also re-draw any final sketch lines that you may have accidentally erased.
Final Step (optional): Add some shading to your hummingbird 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.
You can add more value throughout your hummingbird drawing for extra detail. It's a good idea to use reference to be as accurate as possible in depicting the specific species of hummingbird you want to draw. If you want to draw a ruby-throated hummingbird like this one, remember to PAUSE the video whenever you need help. You can add color to your drawing too!
