That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 6: Draw the camel's eye inside the head on the upper right side. The shape of the eye is similar to a football. Shade the inside of the eye to create the eyeball and pupil. Leave a tiny circle unshaded for glare. Camels have long eyelashes to protect their eyes from sand, so draw bushy lines around the eye. Draw a few more lines around the eye for wrinkles and extra detail.
Step 7: Draw the camel's nose on the tip of the initial arc guide. First draw the outer structure of the nose using a few curved lines. Then draw the nostril as a small slit within the shape.
Step 8: Draw the camel's mouth using the initial arc as a guide. Draw the thick upper lip first and the mouth that stretches to the left. Then draw the smaller lower lip at the bottom.
Step 9: Draw a small arc on the upper left side of the head for the camel's ear. Draw some quick, short strokes at the base of the ear for the hair inside the ear.
