Keep trying, all artists start somewhere, and since wolves evolved from dogs, that is close. With more practice, you will improve — it does take time to perfect. Also check out How to Draw a Wolf for some additional tips to guide you.
Step 8. Slowly progressing onto the neck, we will draw the back first, creating an outward mound which will then form into the shoulder. The front of the chest/neck should be sketched in with light and fluffed detailing lines. Try not to make too many jagged fur definitions since it will make the wolf look scrawny and bristle. You want thin and long strokes of fur.
After inking, you should have a finished product now. This is only optional. A fairly bland example with no shading is here, however it is a good guide to how most people may prefer their sketch.

Find a reference. Finding a reference is useful because this will help guide you on the correct form, anatomy, and basic wolf features.
Try a simpler version of a wolf if this is what you would like to draw, as in only basic shapes, and don’t go crazy with the fur. Move on when you feel ready. The only way to improve is practice. If it still seems too difficult, it depends on what simple is for you.

Step 4. When you want to transform an adult wolf into a puppy, take the key traits from an adult and make certain areas bigger or smaller. For instance, a puppy will have larger undeveloped ears. The snout will be much shorter and the eyes majorly enlarged. As with the adult, we have smaller ears and a longer snout.

Some wolves are more stylized than others, but using the principles of anime, it is possible to draw a simple wolf that incorporates your style along with using the proper anatomy.
Step 2. Now, here’ are ways you can draw your wolf. I’m sure lots of you wolf fans have seen the varieties of wolf shapes/sizes on the net. We have 1. being the normal semi-realistic version of a wolf; having well proportioned paws and a nice toned build. The fur is distributed throughout the body evenly. 2. Is a very fluffed wolf with less of a facial expression to suit the style appropriately. There is lots more fur making the body appear to be thicker yet we still have the toned fur detailing around the muscle elements. This is where referencing the muscles and bones of wolf comes in! 3. We have the skinny and exaggerated paws. I’ve also seen a style where the paws are lightly detailed with simple dividends for definition of paw toes. Notice how this wolf is thin and reveals no mouth.
Step 9. Ok, this may seem hard at first, but it isn’t! Let’s work on the first foreleg which starts thick, adjacent to the shoulder we drew before, and tapers downwards into the paws. When we draw the paws, we’ll want to start with one outlining shape first and THEN the individual dividends of paw toes.
Draw the ‘form sketch’. Prepare the wolf in ovals for bulk muscle, lines for sheer bone, keeping it on the light side. Try not to overdose your drawing with multiple bones and such.

Step 3. These are loose styles based among the various. Like I’ve stated before, experimenting with different shapes of faces and bodies could morph into a style you may find unique and fitting. 1. Is a generic yet classic wolf face that would again, fit for a cutesy style. 2. Is a chibi puppy version of 1. but perfect for a pet of a chibi character. 3. Is a realistic and majestic head which is best for serious animes (Wolf’s Rain). The more angular and detailed a character, the more intense and dramatic the scene/style. Lastly, 4, another style that features a slight Disney styled appearance. Mix and match, people!
Step 12. To finish the wolf, we’ll draw the last leg. Repeat the process and techniques discussed in the previous step. Also, try matching up the every joint to the first hind-leg we drew.

No, it doesn’t. Since you are the artist, you can draw your wolf however you want! You can make it happy, sad, angry, scared, or something else.
Step 7. Then, we shall work on the facials. The eye shouldn’t be drawn no further than the middle of the dipping point of the forehead. Keep the nose small, avoid creating it swallowing a huge portion of the snout. The mouth should be drawn with a slight indent which then ends at the outer corner of the eye.
Step 6. Now, carefully, we’ll keep distance with our guidelines and draw the forehead FIRST, then channel our way downwards to the snout. A wolf’s snout is boxy and longer than a normal dog’s. It slants inwards and forms the chin later on. Now, the cheeks should be VERY fluffy and you don’t see any hit of muscle tone on the face because wolves have furry faces. The ears should also point opposite to one another on either side.

Colored pencils work wonderfully for this, as they allow fine detail.
You can use an image editing program, such as Photoshop, and a drawing tablet. You would use the same techniques described in this article. Consider working with multiple layers, ie: one layer for the sketch, the next layer for the lines, and the third layer for the color.

Anime and manga both have the stylized art with larger eyes etc. The difference is that manga is the Japanese equivalent of Western comic books, and anime is Japanese animation. Lots of anime movies and series are based off manga.
So in short, an anime is an animated cartoon, and a manga is a comic book – but they both have the same iconic art style. The two terms often are used interchangeably when referring to that art style.

Step 14. With further line cleanup, inking, you should end up with something similar to this. If not, retry the tutorial, or simply try drawing one on your own (using the tips presented at the beginning). Remember, practicing is the true way to getting better at drawing, and so is referencing. Keep practicing and you will become a master in a short while. Thanks so much for viewing and I hope you had fun! Don’t forget to post your versions here on Drago. Peace out!
You can just simply search “wolf” on google. If you want drawings for reference, try searching “wolf drawings”.

Step 5. Ok, on with the tutorial, peeps! Let’s start with the essential guidelines for the wolf, creating a small circle for the head, large circle for the chest, and an oval for the hindquarters. Though drawing these guidelines perfectly aren’t entirely necessary, it is still advised to result with a similar figure presented in this tut.

Begin to add shape. Draw a nose starting to emerge out of the oval of the head of the wolf you’ve drawn beforehand, and bumps (paws) on the bottoms of the feet. At this point you can even go as far as dividing up toes.
This will tend to look awkward if your anatomy structure is wrong, in which case you will need to edit it so it looks right. This is where references come in handy.
Add action detail to the figure. If the animal is snarling, begin to add elements to depict this. For hair detail, you can tilt your pencil at an angle, and then began adding streaks of nice lines that mimic fur.
Some lines darker in areas where shade is present.
Add color if you’d like now. Even though it’s a wolf you could use colors like blues and greens to add shading, since it is an anime wolf after all.

So I’ve been researching the site for tutorial ideas to do and thankfully, I’ve found one that I’ve yet to complete (until now). We all know that wolves are a very important part of the world, especially to their favored fans. I find these animals very graceful and royal to the animal kingdom. They convey a strong, majestic stance and their faces have such a sincere yet ominous stare. These creatures are definitely beautiful and I thought by creating a tutorial on “how to draw anime wolves” would be sufficient for their many fans. The preview image was definitely much fun to work on, the background painting was an instant treat. I tend to go crazy when it comes to backgrounds since my skills in that region are lacking. Anyways, I hope you guys will enjoy this simple tutorial. I had intense fun working on it while listening to some World of Warcraft OST’s. Peace out and good luck!

Add shading, fur, and other details. Go wild! Use reference images to help with drawing the fur in particular, since it usually grows in particular directions around each body part.
Step 10. Then, let’s keep distant around the guides and draw the stomach and eventually, the hind-leg. I start at the knee first and then the hocks. Notice how the thigh is fluffed. We don’t want to add to much fluff to the paws and hocks!

Step 11. Then, nearly finishing, we’ll draw the back and then the tail. The tail should have subtle wafts of fur detailing to make it pop. We don’t want to detail the tail to much because it wouldn’t fit within the style.
Step 1. So this is generally two types of basic styles you can start developing. I see tons of wolf art with the classic normal and well detailed wolf, and the anime – mute type style. Style 2 is easily more fitting for a cutesy or serene anime environment, while the Style 1 fits for a semi-realistic anime environment. It’s best to experiment with various styles to develop one of your own. It’s like science for art!

Step 13. Lastly, (optional background), we’ll draw the cliff this canine will be standing on. In this case, I wanted to draw a snowy rock with a large moon framing the body of the wolf. You can go ahead and sketch in some trees or a moon yourself! Get creative 😉
