Draw toes within the feet. Do this by placing two curved lines at the end of each foot.
Draw the fur of the neck extending downward from the head. This fur consists of a series of alternating long and short curved lines. The lines meet sharply to form jagged points.
Color your wolf. Gray wolves are often depicted as being varying shades of gray in color, but they can also be brown, black, reddish, or even white.
Draw a short, curved line at the tip of the snout, and extend a short line upwards from the curve. Atop this line, draw the nose, a round shape slightly pointed at the bottom.
Step 8: Finally, draw the nose, eye, and second ear to complete this drawing of a Wolf.
Draw ears on top of the head. For each ear, draw three curved lines that converge in a point.
In this drawing lesson we’ll show you how to draw a Wolf in 8 easy steps. This step by step lesson progressively builds upon each previous step until you get to the final rendering of the Wolf.
Step 4: Sketch the upper neck and lower back towards the tail.
Each step in this drawing guide is illustrated with a detailed picture. In each example picture, the new lines drawn in that step are highlighted in light blue. All other lines are shown in black. You will want to sketch your lines lightly at first, as some lines will need to be erased in order to complete the drawing.
Detail the eyes. For each eye, draw a circle within a circle. Shade the inner circle.
To form the snout, draw a wide “U” shaped line in the middle of the face.

The gray wolf (scientific name, Canis lupus) is an animal both feared and admired. The ancestors of domestic dogs, wolves are known for their iconic howling. They are large pack hunters that can weigh as much as 175 pounds. Some cultures fear the wolf – in many parts of their range, throughout Europe and North America, wolves have been hunted almost to extinction by farmers hoping to protect their livestock.
Draw a rear leg extending downward from the irregular half circle. The leg consists of two curved lines that get nearer to one another towards the bottom. Draw two curved lines to form the front leg, beginning from the middle and side of the first half circle.
Draw the right front leg consisting of three curved lines. Begin the rear right leg by drawing one curved line.
Erase the guide lines formed by the half circles from the body. The form of your wolf now becomes clear.
Draw another, irregular half circle extending to the left from the first.
Step 5: Draw the mouth and the beginning of the front legs and rear legs.
Wolves can weigh anywhere between 40 lbs and 180 lbs. Wolves live in packs which can be as few as 2 members to as many as 25 members or more. The average wolf can run up to 35 miles an hour. Wolves have 42 teeth.
The average life span of a wolf in the wild is only 7 years though they have been known to live up to 14 years.
Draw each of the four feet. For each foot, connect a roughly “U” shaped curved line to the end of each set of leg lines.
Are you ready to draw a gray wolf? You are in for a howling good time.
From each side of the circle, draw a curved line extending downward.

To some Native American tribes, however, wolves are sacred animals. For example, among the Cherokee, only members of the family line known as the Wolf Clan could kill a wolf, and then only under certain circumstances. Wolves still play a pivotal role in Native American art – as well as popular culture – today.
Start drawing the wolf by following each of the 8 steps in sequence.

Add detail to the fur. Using short, curved lines that join in jagged points, draw tufts of fur at the base of each ear. Add similar details to the chest, shoulders, rump, and legs. Use a curved line to extend the line of the stomach across the rear leg.
Using short, curved lines, add detail to the face – between the eyes, beneath the eyes, and on either side of the snout.
Draw the tail. Begin with a long, curved line extending from the rump. Then, use a series of about seven shorter curved lines of varying lengths to add jagged details of fur and complete the tail.
