How to Draw a Wolf Head, Coloured

how to draw a wolf head, coloured step 1

STEP 1.

Now all you need is a good sharp pencil and a rubber to be good to go! Draw out a circle for the head. Then draw two lines coming of both sides of the circle so they curve down to join at the bottom. Now draw a cross in the middle of the circle so the ends touch the sides. Now draw curved triangles at the top for ears. Lastly draw a half box shape in the bottom half of the circle for the muzzle.

STEP 2.

Draw in the basic shape of the eyes. The eyes look like tears on their sides. Also sketch in the nose and nostrils. Define the shape of the mouth too! It is a good idea to have a picture of an actual wolf for reference of what the wolf's features look like.

STEP 3.

Colour the rim of the eyes black and add a small circle with a highlight for a pupil. Shade the nose in, the top being lighter and nostrils darker. Also there is a line in the middle of the wolf's nose. Make the snout look longer by adding a curved line on either side of the mouth a little way up. And lightly draw lines around where the light and dark bounderies are.

STEP 4.

Draw in the fur around the edge of your wolf's head, face and neck. Rub out your guidelines. Now get some earthy coloured pencils like: blacks, browns, ochre yellow and greys. Get your black pencil and start to colour in where the darker areas are going to be. This is all up to you and what colour your wolf is.

STEP 5.

Now you go over the eyes and nose in black pencil so they stand out. Don't forget to draw a furry line in the middle of each ear and colour the tips black too. Get a deep yellow that isn't too bright and colour in the eyes. You may think that their eyes are yellow but actually in the shadowed areas they are dark green. Don't forget to lightly do this!

STEP 6.

Now we really start colouring! Get your yellow and lightly colour the snout and around the eyes as well as under the chin and part of the neck. Also add in some greys, browns and blacks to around the snout so the yellow won't look out of place. Do this to wherever you add yellow or light colours.

STEP 8.

We are still colouring. Continue to add the colours to your liking. If you want a tip o doing fur the key thing is just colouring blocks of colour in the direction the fur should go.
