When you finish your drawing, accentuate the most important parts with darker lines—especially the area around the eyes. This will stress the typical proud look of a wolf and will let you avoid drawing the curious eyes of a dog instead.

Time for the ears. Surprise here—they’re actually not pointed! Keep them long but rounded.

Sign the drawing and show it off. If you want lots of people to see your art, try uploading it to an art site online.

Let’s add the details now. The eyes have a very dark outline and they’re covered at the top with “eyelashes.” The pupils are round.

Add the ears and the tail. The tail should reach the heels, and it’s usually kept straight, with only very subtle curl allowed.

Step 5. Work your way up to the ears. Again, pay attention to the direction in which the fur flows. Don’t just scribble in random lines.

Wolf paws look quite long, with the middle fingers/toes being so much longer than the one on the outside. The claws are non-retractable, so they wear out and therefore shouldn’t look too sharp. Just like in felines, front paws have a dew claw (“thumb”, a), and a pisiform pad (a protruding bone on the other side of your wrist, b). Hind paws have only four toes and no dew claws.

Step 17. Finish up your drawing by shading in the rest of the fur. I decided to blend in the fur around the lower part of the drawing but you can leave it detailed if you want to. I also shaded in my background using a 4B pencil and a blending stump. I hope you all find this helpful!

Draw the actual muzzle, using a form of a sack. It should be longer and narrower than in cats.

Step 11. Work on the ears one at a time. I decided to start on the further one.

Draw two sections for each paw: the padded part and the bony part. Wolves are digitrade, which means they walk on their fingers and toes, so that’s how you can imagine it to create a right pose. The forepaws are often larger than the hind ones. Remember about keeping the right perspective.

Use your own art style, even if you use these instructions. If you use someone else’s style, it just won’t be the same.

Step 15. Move down to the next layer layer of fur and use the same techniques as before.

Step 7. Now start shading the wolf’s mane. Pay attention to how the fur is layered as you add in your lines.

Any paper works. If you’re doing details with fur, shading, etc., it might help to have a thicker paper. I wouldn’t recommend computer paper, but you should use whatever you have!

Add the muzzle. A wolf’s muzzle is not too long but not too short, having thick black lips, a round, slightly triangle shaped nose with circular nostrils. The snout is blocky.

Divide the muzzle into thirds, then divide the upper third into halves. You don’t need to measure them perfectly—just remember that this line on the top should be quite far from the tip of the muzzle.

Step 2. Start out with a basic sketch, use the guidelines if you need them.

Add a little neck fur. Draw some neck fur that points downwards.

Step 10. Shade in the other eye and some of the fur on the forehead.

How do I tell the difference between a wolf and a fox drawing?

This is a normal state. Pay attention to the jaw joint and how the mouth covers the teeth. This is a relaxed state. The animal may be panting after some physical effort, it may “smile” this way, but sometimes it also means the animal is nervous.

Again, take a look at the jaw joint. The lower teeth are only partially visible because they’re covered with a characteristic wide, bumpy lower lip (only canines have this structure). This is a wolf opening its mouth in a relaxed way, for example to eat something.

Notice how loose skin of the mouth still covers the upper teeth. This is a howling wolf. Imagine it as a wolf “duck-face”—the lips are contracted to create a small passage for the air in the front.

This wolf is angry or just wants to look intimidating. Although the jaws are closed, it can show its teeth by pulling up the lose skin of the mouth (along with the nose). The upper gums can be visible, but just in the front.

Notice wide open eyes! This is the same state with the mouth open. Compare it with no. 3.

Finish the paws by covering the pads with fur. Wolf paws are often drawn as very skinny, with an exaggerated anatomy, to make them visibly different from feline paws. However, it’s not necessary—”flat” elongated paws with very long fingers in the middle are enough for a wolf look.

Wolves are social animals, and they have developed a variety of facial expressions to let their packmates know how they feel. We can use them in drawing to make our wolves more realistic.

At this point, your wolf should look already like a wolf, just in its summer coat. Let’s give it a more classic look by adding the mane.

Step 1. Start off by picking your pencils. I used a 4H pencil for light lines/shading, a B pencil for dark lines/details, and a 4B pencil for the darkest shading.

Wolves also have a very narrow chest, so they keep their forelegs close, with the paws often splayed outward. The hind legs have a special position too—they’re usually more or less “cow-hocked,” which means the paws are turned slightly outside as well.

Many color variations can be created just by changing the contrast of the colors:

Wolves can have a variety of colors, but they generally follow a certain rule of coloration. The underside is bright, white or creamy, then there’s a medium colored area in the middle, and then it meets a dark top. There’s often a highly saturated area right below the dark top. The most important areas of fur are outlined in a contrasting way. In the face the colors may accentuate the facial features we’ve talked about earlier. The tail often has a darker tip, and there’s a precaudal gland in the upper half, creating a patch of dark hair, no matter how light the rest of the pelt is. The nose, paw pads, and claws are always dark. The eyes are usually yellow, brown, or orange—only pups can have dark blue eyes.

How do I make it face forward and in different positions? What main shapes is the snout made out of and what should I practice with the snout positions?

Step 4. Using a B pencil, start devoloping the the lines and shading. Start at the eyes. Don’t worry about getting a lot of different values/shades, just try to develope what you already have and hint at the direction that the fur flows.

10 Ways to Unsuccessfully Market Yourself as an Artist Commentary

The fur around the eyes is very important, because it creates a characteristic wolf glance. These patches are as important as our eyebrows!

Wolves have a very characteristic silhouette that can be drawn in a simplified way, without paying too much attention to the anatomy. Start with a long, rounded rectangle for the body…

If you want to draw a wolf quickly, you can just add fur everywhere. But if you want to achieve a realistic look, use my guide. Keep in mind the ears are always very fluffy inside.

Start with the ears. The ears of a timber wolf have slightly round tips. There’s fur inside the ear on each side and the ear is shaped almost like a triangle.

Step 13. Go ahead and shade in the snout. Use a B pencil to add in a few whiskers.

Step 16. Ready the drawing for the final layers of fur. I used a blending stump to smooth out the area before going over in with 4H and B pencils. I also shaded in the darkest fur with a 4B pencil.

Step 14. Start working on the topmost layer of the mane and the rest of the head fur. Use quick strokes with a 4H pencil to emulate fur. Try using a plending stump or kneadable eraser to smooth out your fur if you need to.

Draw the fingers and toes, imagining they’re little sacks filled with something heavy.

… then elongate its front to create a thick, fluffy neck. Don’t draw its tip too high over the body!

It’s fine if it isn’t perfect at first. You can keep practicing in order to make it better.

Here’s a few popular color variations, with white being reserved for the Arctic Wolf only. You can modify certain elements to your liking (e.g. add a dark tip of the tail) as long as you stick to the general rules described above. Keep in mind that pups are always born dark and without any markings.

Of course, you don’t need to draw all the strands every time. Just use the rules to create outlines of all the areas. The most important elements that should be stressed are the neck mane, the shoulder cape, the “butt cape,” and the bushy tail. The rest can be stylized in your preferred way. In fact, if you outline the most important areas, you may not need to draw the rest of fur at all!

Draw in the eyes. The eyes are small and circular. They have a smaller round black pupil in the middle and are surrounded by something black called the wolf’s conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is pointed at the end of the eye that leads to the snout but round at the other end of the eye.

If you want, add a background. This can be whatever you want it to be.

Notice how their paws are often cow-hocked — splayed out. How to Draw a Wolf Step By Step

Step 3. Your sketch should end up looking something like this. I used a 4H pencil to sketch but any pencil should work. Try to erase any lines that you don’t need.

We all know that wolves have long muzzles and pointed ears, but if you want to draw a realistic wolf head, you need to know more than that. There’s a lot of steps in this process, but you only need to follow me directly once—later you should be able to find your own personal “shortcuts.”

Now, don’t get me wrong—you don’t need to draw realistic wolves every time, and there are many fantastic styles you can use to draw these animals. However, make sure your stylization is intentional and not based on ignorance. You can recognize a wolf in the picture below, but it’s full of mistakes. Each of them can be used in your drawing, but only if you have a reason for it (for example, short muzzle can be good if you want your character to look cute and friendly). Let’s analyze them one by one:

Add a slightly curved claw to each finger and toe. Remember to keep them blunt!

Let’s take a look at a simplified skeleton of the wolf first. It defines proportions of the parts of the body, so if you can draw it (even in a sketchy way), then you should be able to capture a wolf silhouette correctly every time. The most important feature here are the long legs, with long “hands” and relatively short “feet.”

A “one-piece pajama” skin is what makes felines look cat-like. A wolf can be created by following some other rule: a special direction of fur over the body. It may look complicated at first, but if you draw it a few times, you’ll see it’s quite easy to remember.

Draw the nose and the lips. The nose should be quite big. Notice how thin the chin is!

Monika Zagrobelna is a Polish artist with a specialty in drawing animals and conceiving of animals that haven’t yet been invented. You can check out more of her work and follow along with her latest tutorials on her Facebook Page.

To draw the paws, start with general lines describing their position. These lines should be based on the skeleton.

Do the head and cheek fur next.  Cheek fur should be organized in a row of fur strands that point downwards. Head fur should point to the right or left but be almost flat.

The nose is quite flat in the front, with big holes and a wide back.

Add the rest of the skull. Imagine a big, flattened sphere attached to the muzzle.

Wolves have whiskers, too! The corner of the lips should be placed near the eye level.

Add the tip of the muzzle. Remember to use perspective here.

Add some body to the legs, connecting gently the paws to the shoulder and thigh.

Wolves are beautiful, noble animals, wild and mysterious. So similar to our domestic dogs, yet unique. And even though we all can recognize a wolf when we see one, drawing them from imagination is a different thing. In this tutorial I will give you all the information you need to know how to draw wolves from memory—from general anatomy, structure of the head and paws, to direction and colors of fur.

Finally, finish the silhouette by adding a mane and a shoulder cape.

We all know that wolves have long muzzles and pointed ears, but if you want to draw a realistic wolf head, you need to know more than that.

Too short muzzle: long muzzles are important canine features Too big eyes: the bigger the eyes, the smaller the animal seems Pointed ears The head is kept unnaturally high Too short body Pointed, curled tail Too wide chest Too muscular legs Sharp claws Round paws Too long feet: this is a feature of hoofed animals That’s All!

Add huge panda-like patches where the eyes will be. Subtly connect them with the muzzle.

Awesome picture! Tell us more about it? Click here to share your story.

Color the face realistically (or not so realistically if it’s something like your character). You should use colored pencil for better results if its hand drawn. The lines of coloring should point the same way the line art does and be thin.

For shading, press the pencil down harder. The eyes of a timber wolf are usually bright yellow, but in rare cases they may become green or permanently stay blue.

Step 9. Now start adding a final layer of shading by starting with the eyes again. Use a 4B pencil for the darkest shading. Rely on 4H and B pencils to shade in the fur. Use 4H for light fur and B for dark fur/hairs.

I know how much you all love wolves so I just had to make one of my first tutorials of the new year another wolf tutorial. This time I’ll be showing you how to draw a majestic mexican wolf. Get your pencil and paper out and have at it!

The classic “almond shape” of the eyes is achieved by adding the dark outline.

Let’s start with a line showing the direction of the muzzle and a line showing the position of the eyes.

Wolves look very intimidating when they’re so furry, but they’re not always this way. Their summer coat is less impressive, making them more similar to a German shepherd. The areas of fur are still visible, but you can draw them with subtler lines.

Additional note: “angry” state can  be turned into “fearful” state just by putting the ears back.

Reveal the bottom of each paw, and add a bigger “sack” on the back.

Now you know all about drawing wolves! But it isn’t the end. You need to practice a lot to learn to draw them quickly and easily (without checking this tutorial every time). In order to do it Google some photos of wolves and sketch them using the guidelines I’ve shown you today. In the video below you can see an example of such an exercise preformed in SketchBook Pro. The more you draw this way, the easier it will be for you to draw wolves from imagination and to design new wolf-like creatures.
