Step 1.

Let us start by drawing out the lining for the howling mouth.

Step 2.

Continue with the lining to form the wolves snout, forehead, and ear. Also color in the nose before moving onto the next step.

Step 3.

The next thing we will do is draw out the actual shape for the inside of the mouth which is open and howling. Once that is done color it in solid, then add the whiskers, closed eye, and some of the fur or coat on the snout. This is a tribal version o   

Step 4.

Next, begin the lining from the chin of the wolf, down to the front part of the chest. You will also need to complete the shape of the ear in this step as well. Once that is done draw in more of the wolf's long coat around the sides of the face, then   

Step 5.

Here you will basically finish drawing the wolf design. All you need to do is draw in the layers of fur that line the neck to the back of the neck. Make sure to add some nice design lines like you see like a curl or arch. Erase the mistakes that you    

Step 6.

Lastly, draw the crescent shape around the wolf's head like so. This is obviously the moon. Now you're all done.

Description: In this new tutorial, I'm pretty excited to present a new tribal tattoo addition. Seeing that my tribal skull was a success (though I didn't expect it to), I wanted to create something geared towards the wolf lovers. In this fresh lesson, I will show you 'how to draw a howling wolf tattoo', step by step. I had fun working on the design, especially drawing the nose and individual tribal designs the build the fluffy mane. Keep in mind, when you're drawing the fur, that it should be relevant to the shapes used for the rest of the body. The mouth will probably be the lightest and thickest area of positive space, with the moon sort of adding closure to the overall piece. Hopefully, you guys will enjoy this fun lesson!
