wolf drawing
Hi everybody and welcome to a brand-new tutorial on the NIL-Tech, this time entitled "How to draw a wolf’s head step by step".


Wolves are famous because of their spine-tingling howl, which they utilize to interact. Single wolf howls to attract the attention of his pack, while communal groans might send territorial messages from one pack to another. Some howls are confrontational. Much like barking domestic dogs, wolves may simply begin shouting because a close-by wolf has actually currently started.



The realistic way to draw a wolf head step by step – Let’s get going!!


In this tutorial we used the next art products:

  • H5 pencil
  • B2 pencil
  • B3 pencil
  • B5 pencil
  • B8 pencil
  • Kneaded Eraser
  • White Vinyl Eraser
  • Blending Stump

Step 1. We draw the wolf centerline of the face, which diverges in two from the nose to the eyes and ears (pencil H5).

Step 2. We draw the outlines of the muzzle, on the points of the eyes - eyes, nose in place of the nose, ears and mouth. To fall on the left side a little more than the right. Under the eyes draw lines to emphasize the nose. (pencil H5).

Step 3. Draw the upper teeth in the mouth and body contour. Eyebrowing around the eye (pencil H5).

Step 4. We draw the main direction of the hair on the face and the details - eyes, lower teeth, tongue (wash, pencil B2).

Step 6. We erase the central lines from which we began to build the drawing. Shade with a uniform gray color the body and face of a wolf (pencil B3). All but the teeth and shine on the nose. Shade the nose with a darker color (pencil B5). The dark elements of the nose are drawn with a B8 pencil.

Step 7. Rub the blending gray color in the picture (feathering). Apply the shadow on the body of the wolf. We don’t touch the muzzle so as not to rub the graphite by hand during the drawing (pencil B3).
