How to Draw a White Wolf

Artist: Dawn / December 26, 2016

Step 1.

Here you will make some guides. One for the head, torso and back end. Sketch in the limb guides and then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Begin drawing the wolf's face starting with the snout. Add the wrinkles down the snout like so, then move to step three.

Step 3.

Okay, sketch in the eyes which should have a mean, gnarly expressive look. Add some shading around the eyes, then draw the nose. Don't forget to add detailing at the outer parts of the eyes.

Step 4.

Next, draw the lower jaw, the top row of teeth, and be sure that your wolf is showing a gum line. Also add some hair to the chin.

Step 5.

Now you can draw out the shape of the wolf's head. To do so start at the top, sketch in the sides of the face which are the cheeks, then draw in the ears. Notice how the ears are flat in a horizontal pose. Add some hair sticking out from below the ea   

Step 6.

The head and face is done. Sketch out the first front leg, then draw in the paw. Add the claws and all the definition to the leg near the elbow.

Step 7.

We are moving along nicely with this lesson so let's keep the momentum going. Complete the front of the wolf's body by drawing the other leg. When that is done sketch in the nicely arched toes, claws and dewclaw. Add some long hair to the chest under   

Step 8.

This white wolf is in a defensive state. You will sketch out the arched back with the prickly hairs standing up. Then you will draw the chest, stomach and add some more hair on the shoulder area.

Step 9.

Draw in the back leg which should look we defined and strong or sturdy. Then add the toes, claws, and dimpling to the back paw.

Step 10.

Draw in the other back leg folks. When that is done don't forget the claws then move to step eleven.

Step 11.

That's it folks, this is your last drawing step. Now that you are done all you have to do is sketch out the tail. The tail should be fluffy and spike on the back. Erase your mistakes then erase the guides.

Step 12.

This is the line art when done. You can now color in your wolf white, or whatever color you like.

Description: I think it's time for another awesome wolf lesson because I haven't drawn any cool, mean looking wolves in a while. I was looking through my old, old lessons and came across a wolf that I did and love to this day. It's called 'how to draw an anime wolf' and it's the one with the red background color. This is supposed to be a remake or play on that very same concept because I love the wolf so much. Having said that, here is "how to draw a white wolf" anime style.I had so much fun with this lesson and I know lots of you members and visitors will too. I have to hurry because I want to get most of my lessons uploaded before I have to go live. Enjoy drawing a white wolf folks, and keep a look out for more to come.
