Step 15: Darken the remaining lines using the quick, short strokes to draw the rest of the husky's body.
Step 16: Thicken up the initial line using quick, short strokes to draw the dog's bushy tail.
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. Also re-draw any final sketch lines that you may have accidentally erased.
Final Step (optional): Add some shading to your husky dog 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 the dog. This helps ground the husky so it doesn't appear to be floating.
You can stop here for a white husky dog or you can add more value throughout your drawing for the classic husky look. It's a good idea to use reference to be as accurate as possible when drawing the coat pattern. Pause the video to use this drawing for reference and at any other time you need help.
