In order to draw a wolf, you need to imagine what an ordinary mongrel dog looks like, and know what features distinguish this predator from a domestic animal.
Start drawing by drawing construction lines. Draw two ovals for the head and body of the wolf. This predatory mammal is especially recognizable in two poses: when it howls at the moon and when it is alert and looks sullenly. In this case, the head of the animal is below the level of the shoulder blades.
Outline the neck with connecting lines.
Draw the wolf's face. Select the protruding brow ridges, outline a long, straight muzzle. Draw oval eyes - they are set right at the level where the bulging forehead meets the bridge of the nose. Draw the nose at the end, highlight the nostrils. Remember that the wolf's muzzle is rather elongated, and the tanks are covered with thick hair sticking out to the sides. Draw the lower jaw and large fangs if your animal bares its teeth.
Draw triangular ears. They are located at the top of the head and not on the sides as in some dog breeds.
Select the scruff of the wolf's body, draw the direction of fur growth along the ridge and on the belly. Correct the shape of the oval so that the animal does not turn out to be too plump.
Start drawing the paws. Compared to an ordinary dog of an indeterminate breed, the wolf has longer limbs. In addition, the length of the paw is longer, and the two front toes are pushed forward compared to the rest. Draw the curve of the hind legs, draw the articulation between the thigh and lower leg.
Do not forget to draw the tail: it is always down - wolves do not wag it like dogs. The shape of the tail is similar to an elongated oval.
Start coloring. The color of the wolf's coat depends on the species and habitat and can be gray, brownish, black and white. The fur under the jaw, on the chest and abdomen is lighter and softer. Outline the animal's eyelids with dark paint, slightly spread the outer corners to the sides. Use yellow or brown for the eyes.
