Draw Pangolin 15

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 the guides. The pangolin's scales make that difficult to do. 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 pangolin drawing to give it more dimension and volume. Add some shading to the individual scales for a feeling of separation and overlapping. You don't have to do it to all of them — just a few to get the sense of it. 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. This helps ground the pangolin so it doesn't appear to be floating.

You can add more value throughout your pangolin drawing for extra detail. Live the tips of the scales without value to give them some sheen.
