Step 20: Use the line on the right as a guide to draw the first hind leg. Like before, lightly sketch the leg around the guide and only darken the lines when you get the shape right. Curve the shape where the joints are. Notice how much wider the top of the hind leg is than the front leg. Draw a couple of curved lines at the bottom for the dingo's toes. Make the tips of the toes pointy for the nails.

Step 21: Use the angled line on the right as guide to draw the other hind leg the same way. A big part of the top of this leg will be hidden behind the dingo's tail and body, so don't bother drawing it.

Step 22: Use the remaining lines and shapes as guides to draw the rest of the dingo's body. Simply darken the outer edges of the initial guides to create the shape of the body. Use short strokes for a fury texture. Don't overlap the shapes of the legs as you draw the body. Draw the shape of the dingo's tail around the curved guide line on the right. Use longer strokes to draw the shaggy shape of the tail around the guide.

Step 23: 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 on your dingo that you may have accidentally erased.

Final Step: Add some shading to your dingo drawing for extra detail. Use a dark value for the nose. Dingoes don't really have a pattern on their coats, so just use a medium value all over the body. Vary the pressure on your pencil to get different degrees of tonal value. As you shade, use strokes that go in the general direction of the fur. The lower half of the head, the chest, the underside of the body and the paws are white, so leave these areas blank. For a more detailed guide on how to shade, check out this tutorial: How to shade.

Use a slightly darker value to add some shadows to your dingo 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. Add the value lightly at first. Gradually make it darker until you're happy with the result. It's a good idea to use reference as you draw for a more accurate dingo drawing.

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