Draw a Bactrian Camel Two Humps 20

Step 20: Use the remaining lines as guides to draw the rest of the Bactrian camel's body. Use quick, short strokes as you follow the m-shaped guide line to create the furry double hump. A Bactrian camel has two humps, like the letter B in its name. A Dromedary has one hump, like the letter D in its name. This is a good way to remember which is which. Keep following the outer edges of the guides as you draw the shape of the body. Use the small, curved line on the right side as a guide to draw the short tail.

Step 21: 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 you may have accidentally erased.

Final Step: Add some shading to your Bactrian camel 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. Continue adding the value until the entire body is covered in the appropriate shadows.

Add a cast shadow underneath. This helps ground the camel so it doesn't appear to be floating.

You can add even more value throughout your camel drawing for extra detail. Camels don't have any kind of pattern on their coats, so just use a medium value throughout the body. Don't worry about shading too smoothly. The rough value gives the coat a furry texture. The tops of the humps should be dark. Darken the shadows a bit more too as you go along. Continue shading until the entire body is covered in a medium value. It's always a good idea to look at reference as you draw. Don't forget to pause the video to draw at your own pace.
