How to Draw a Woolly Rhinoceros 20

Step 20: Use the remaining lines and shapes as guides to draw the rest of the woolly rhinoceros' body. Use a series of short strokes along the outer edges of the guides to create the shape of the furry body. The fur on the hump should be standing on end, while the fur on the rump should be more flat. Use longer strokes on the underside of the body for the shaggier fur found here. Curve the strokes a bit. The longer the strokes are, the longer the woolly rhino's fur will be. On the right side, draw a small clump of fur that's made up of short strokes for the tail.

Step 21: 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 woolly rhinoceros drawing for extra detail. Using series of short strokes, add a medium value all over the rhino's body. Nobody is exactly sure what woolly rhinos looked like, so you can add spots, stripes or even color your rhino! For a more detailed guide on how to shade, check out this tutorial: How to shade.

As you shade, use strokes that go in the general direction of the woolly rhinoceros' fur. 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.

Make the fur along the bottom a bit darker to create shadows and make the figure more three-dimensional. Vary the pressure on your pencil to get different degrees of tonal value. Shading can be time-consuming, so be patient and take breaks. Continue shading until the woolly rhinoceros' entire body is covered with fur. Use a light value for the horns.

Add a cast shadow underneath. This helps ground the woolly rhinoceros so it doesn't appear to be floating. Don't forget to pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace.
