Let's get started shall we? Start by drawing a circle for the head guide, then another bean like shape for the body guide. Connect the two by making the neck, then sketch in the facial guidelines as well as the legs and paw guides.

Step 2.


The first part of the body that we will tackle is the head. Sketch out the long coated, fur covered head shape. The sides of the head which are the cheeks should be long. Draw the ears, and top of the head as well.

Description: Happy Easter everyone, or to those of you that celebrate the Resurrection of Christ. I know a lot of you will be at church later, then again some of you already went to mass this morning. I love the magical vibes that Easter gives off and because of that I think this lesson fits well with the holy holiday. I drew this wolf in livestream and I have to say, it was so much fun. I have been wanting to make a lesson that resembles the native american t-shirts that I wear. The purple hues and magical look of the finished drawing is so captivating and soft. This tutorial will show you "how to draw a gray wolf", step by step. There is nothing more for me to say because I really want you to get busy with making your own mystical looking wolf. Of course you don't have to start the lesson now, you can wait till Easter is over or when your company leaves, or when you get home. Peace out folks, and enjoy your holy holiday.
