The Wolf is a favorite animal of mine. In this tutorial I will teach you how to draw a wolf with simple instructions. Since I drew my version of a grey wolf, I will give you the 411 on them. First off they are the largest member of the Canidae family and the most popular of all wolves. They weight typically between 75-140 pounds. Wolves are built are built for two things, survival and hunting. Because of their build they need to have a strong stamina. One disturbing fact is that wolves are still hunted this very day as a sport or as a threat to livestock. Grey wolves live in temperate deserts, mountains, grasslands, and forest. This sketch took me a long while to draw; I really wanted to put detail into this animal just to show how beautiful they really are. I did how ever color the image in Adobe Photoshop CS. I you have some good quality colored pencils that would be sufficient as well. I hope you learn and have fun with this tutorial. Learn "how to draw a cartoon wolf" here.

Draw the under scopes of the wolf's eyes. Draw a mouth for your dog as well. Add a puff to the far right of the nose. This gives your wolf its cuteness (which I adore!). Draw a puffy circle encircling his face. This gives your canine some bounce. Do you see those three little circles floating around at the base of the body? Those are the knees of its forelegs and back legs. Now let's move on.

Give your dog some pattern on its head and some slight whisker markings. Yes, wolves have whiskers. This is because, whiskers are used as sensors. Not only cats have whiskers but other animals do too. So start giving some fur to the wolf.
