Step 29: 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 faun or satyr drawing to give it more dimension and volume. Use a dark value around the eyes to make them stand out. On the horns, alternate between a dark and light value. Use a dark value on the hair. For the face, use a medium value but a dark value for the shadows. 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 the value lightly at first, then gradually build up to the level of darkness that you want. Fauns and satyrs are mythical creatures, so you can shade yours differently if you'd like. You can actually give your drawing stripes or spots or even color it! For a more classic look, use a very dark value for the lower half of the body. Shading can be time-consuming, so be patient and take breaks. Continue shading until the entire body is covered.

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