How to Draw a Werewolf Transformation, Werewolf Transformation

Step 1.

First stage of any transformation, is the sharp stinging pains that tingle throughout the entire body. The victim experiences severe muscle spasms and overheating in the body. Here in 1) we have the basic, simply detailed body figure about to phase into the rapid transformation process. Notice how in figure 2) there tends to be a lot more detailing, as well as slight clothing tears; the body becoming muscular and lengthy, the face forming a snout, the hands becoming larger and stronger. It's best to further the transformation process with extreme detail, more intense than the next.

Step 2.

Next stages are pretty intense, where the victim goes through a very strong and brutal painful semi-finished stage. 3) we have the clothes searing off the body, with the muscle definition intensified as well as fuller. Examine the snout and how the hair has shortened into fur. Notice how the paws still retain the '5' toes. 4) is the final stage of transformation, where the body is finally shifted, the arms nearly long as the length of the torso and legs. This will further the speed of the werewolf, allowing maximum predatory advantage. Notice how all the detailing is at its fullest, and how the clothes are finally melted from the body. NEVER draw a werewolf transition stage suddenly have the clothing disappear unless he/she has moved.

Step 3.

Now, I love drawing the transformation process from the side because it really does give you an insight on how complex the process is to draw. Watch how the face becomes increasingly larger and more detailed, forming a snout and erect ears. The final stage of course is always larger than the beginning stage (human). The more detailed the process, the more believable and intense it will appear.

Step 4.

Let's start with the profile view of the werewolf head that you see in the colored image of this tutorial. Start with a circle for the head guide. You will then use the circle to begin sketching out the snout of the werewolf like so, as well as the bottom jaw. Make sure that there is some fuzz along the chin and jawline. Next, sketch out the cheek, then draw in the nose tip, crinkles along the snout, the sharp razor teeth which are closed on one another, and then sketch out the eye. Add all the texture definition to the werewolf's coat like you see here. Next and lastly, draw in the large pointed ears, as well as the back of the head, the entire front part of the neck, then some of the visual shoulder. Again, add the surface detailing like so.

Step 5.

Now lets get started with the actual full image werewolf. Start the drawing by making a small shape for the werewolf's head, then draw in a small egg shape for the torso. You will then connect the two with a neck guide, then draw the limb lines.

Step 6.

Like you did with the profile lesson, begin this one the same way. Start with sketching out the snout, then draw in the ears and lower jaw.

Step 7.

You should slowly start drawing in the sharp werewolf teeth so they come out really neat and even with one another. After that is done you have to draw out the eyes, then add all the creases, folds, and wrinkles around the snout, between the eyes, and along the sides of the face. Don't forget to draw in that nose too.

Step 8.

Now here is where all the magic happens. You will probably need to take things down a notch because there is a lot of detailing involved with the next few steps. First, sketch out the back of the werewolf's neck and make sure that the neck hairs are prickly looking. You will draw out the muscular and well defined shoulders and upper arms. Sketch out the muscular and toned chest, as well as the definition on the chest. Finish the neck, then add more detailing to the thick neck too.

Step 9.

Finish off the arms by drawing in the forearms. When that is done work on getting the over sized claws or hands drawn out. As you know werewolves have these massive hands with sharp clawed fingers. Add the detailing of the tendons on the top parts of the hands, then draw the hips as well as the crotch and thighs.

Step 10.

You are nearly done with this tutorial on drawing a werewolf. You will need to sketch out the lower part of the legs which are shaped like a canine. The feet look very much like a wolf's foot as you can tell. The toes should be clawed. Sketch in the tendons on the front part of the foot like so, then sketch out the tail. Add all the remaining definition and detail lines on the werewolf's body like so.

Step 11.

Lastly, simply draw in the ground that this creature is standing on. You are all done once you have erased all the mistakes. You have to clean up the drawing to prepare it for color.

Step 12.

Here is the finished sketch. Add the shading to the areas you see here if you want, then color in your drawing. Great work guys, I knew you could do it!

Well folks, I have something super special that I think most of you will like. I decided that an awesome next tutorial should be on something I haven't done for a while. So, after careful thinking, I decided that I would make a tutorial on how to draw a werewolf transformation, step by step. It took me a long while to complete this tutorial as you can imagine. I drew a series of steps that show the transformation process from when the man is human, all the way up until his full werewolf form. This is probably one of the coolest tutorials I have drawn in a while, and since I took so much time and effort in making it a step by step lesson, I really hope that there are folks that like this submission too. It's not easy drawing a werewolf so that is why I made another tutorial on one. Besides, I wanted to try out this new drawing technique that I've been working on. As you can see this werewolf is much cooler than the ones I've submitted in the past. So here you are, drawing a werewolf transformation. I hope you enjoy following this tut half as much as I did creating it.
