How To Draw A Wolf Step By Step

Today I am going to show you how to draw a wolf. I knew this one was going to take a little while to do, so it has been sitting on the back burner for quite some time!

While this tutorial will be similar to our tutorials on how to draw a dog, or fox, there are a few things that differ when drawing a wolf–so let’s get started!



What you’ll need:

Step 1

To get your wolf started, you will need to draw a large triangular shape which will be your wolf’s head. This should be nearly a perfect half-circle at the top, and come down to a rounded point.


Step 2

Give your wolf two large ears that sit directly on the top of its head. Also, draw in where the wolf’s mouth will be by making a “W” shape near the bottom point of the triangle.


Step 3

Give your wolf a large heart shaped nose that sits right in the middle of the shape you drew for its mouth. Give your wolf a couple fairly small eyes, each sitting parallel with the center of the wolf’s ears.


Step 4

Now that you have the basic head of your wolf mapped out, draw a layer of fur surrounding the head and ears.

As you can see in the image on the left, I brought the fur out to the right a little bit, to give the wolf some shoulders.


Step 5

Erase the guidelines from the previous steps, and give your wolf a little more fur detail near the top of its head, and ears.


Step 6

At this point, your wolf is pretty much complete. All that is left to do is to add the final details, like a little more fur, and some whiskers. You can also see in the image on the left that I darkened the area around the eyes, and added some more fur around the wolf’s face.

Mind you, this wolf doesn’t have any shading or extreme detail to it. Rather, it is just an outline to show you the basics of how to draw your own wolf. Feel free to get as detailed, (or not), as you want!
