Step 25: 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 you may have accidentally erased.
Final Step: Add some shading to your jackalope drawing for extra detail. Jackalopes are fictional, so you can shade yours however you'd like. Add spots, stripes or even color it! For this look, use a medium value all over the body. Leave an area around the jackalope's eyes, nose, mouth and edge of the ear blank. As you shade, use strokes that go in the general direction of the fur. For a more detailed guide on how to shade, check out this tutorial: How to shade.
Separate each individual stroke a bit so that the white of the paper comes through and creates a more fur-like texture. Add the value lightly at first and gradually build up to the level of darkness that you like. Use a lighter value on the underside of the jackalope's body for a bit of lighter fur found there. Shading can be time-consuming, so be patient and take breaks. Don't forget to pause the video to draw at your own pace.
Add a cast shadow underneath. This helps to ground the jackalope so it doesn't appear to be floating.
