Description: I think I have said all I could about wolves and the species. Drawing these forest animals is always fun, but the more I draw a repeated animal, dragon, person, or character, the more I run out of things to talk about. I just wanted to do a sketch on “how to draw a realistic wolf, step by step” that was easy, colorful, and fun. Sketching animals is almost always complicated because of the contours in their faces, bodies, and even their fur. I wanted this drawing to be very simple for everybody to tackle, and because of that, I drew the side view of a wolf's head. There are many different species of wolves that are in existence, so choosing the kind you want to sketch out can be a bit frustrating. My advice, choose a wolf that is less fluffy then others, and even a bit more thicker. The coloring that I did for the wolf came out looking pretty sweet too. I think it should be easy for you guys to use colored pencils, oil paint, and even a good set of quality markers to shade in your animal with. In the end you will get results that you should be pleased with. Try out this lesson, and you will see just how easy it is to learn “how to draw a realistic wolf, step by step”. Today is Saturday, so maybe you can stick around a bit longer to see what else I upload before the night is done. Peace out, and happy drawing!
