Step 20: Use the angled line on the far left as a guide to draw the first hind leg. Draw this leg the same way. Follow the path of the guide and lightly sketch the leg around it. Notice how much thicker the top of this leg is compared to the front leg. When you get the shape right, darken the lines. Bend the shape at the joints. Use short strokes at the top of the leg for the fur. Add the toes at the bottom as two short, curved lines.
Step 21: Use the last angled line as a guide to draw the other hind leg the same way. A big section of the top leg will be hidden behind the first hind leg, so don't draw that part.
Step 22: Use the remaining lines and shapes as guides to draw the rest of the jackal's body. Simply darken the outer edges of the initial guides to create the shape of the body. Use short strokes along the underside of the body and neck for a furry texture. Draw the shape of the jackal's tail around the guide on the left. Make the middle section thick and the bottom pointy.
Step 23: 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 jackal drawing for extra detail. Use a dark value for the inside of the ears. Use a dark value for the nose and around the eyes too. Use a medium value for the rest of the head. Shade the head using a series of tiny strokes to emulate the fur. The strokes on the head should radiate outward from the nose. Leave a section around the eyes and on the lower half of the head blank for white fur. For a more detailed guide on how to shade, check out this tutorial: How to shade.
This is a black-backed jackal, so draw a series of black marks along the back for a speckled look. Leave some blank areas on the back for a bit of white fur among the dark fur. Use a dark value for the tip of the tail and a medium value for the rest of the body. Use a slightly darker value to add shadows throughout the jackal's body and give the figure more dimension.
It's a good idea to use reference as you draw for an accurate depiction of a jackal. Don't forget to pause the video to draw at your own pace. Add a cast shadow underneath. This helps to ground the jackal so it doesn't appear to be floating.
