Step 10: Use the arc as a guide to draw the okapi's muzzle. Follow the basic path of the arc to create the muzzle. Add a line under the nose for the mouth. Draw a series of short lines under the mouth for the chin and the bottom part of the muzzle.
Step 11: Use the arcs on the head as guides to draw the ears. Follow the path of the arcs as you darken the lines and make the okapi's ears pointier. Add some lines inside for the fur.
Step 12: Draw the rest of the okapi's head using the remaining lines and shapes as guides. Add a couple of bumps on the head for the ossicones. Draw the okapi's jaw at the bottom as a long, curved line.
Step 13: Using the line on the right side as a guide, draw the okapi's front legs. Lightly sketch the shape of the first leg as you follow the basic path of the line. When you get the structure right, darken the lines. Add a few bumps along the way for the muscles and joints. Draw the front leg on the other side by using the first leg as a template.
Step 14: Use the line on the left side as a guide to draw the okapi's hind legs using the same technique. Start sketching lightly as you follow the path of the guide and only darken when you have the structure right. Bend the leg at the joints and add the hoof at the bottom. The top should be thicker than the top of the front leg. Draw the hind leg on the other side by using the previous leg as a template.
