How to Draw Easy Tribal

Step 1.

Like you can see here, the first step looks very much like a horse head outline, or even a birds head from the side view. Once you have drawn out these two shapes, draw in a line in the middle of the face.

Step 2.

Now you will start sketching out the actual shape of the tribal werewolf snout, nose, brow, and the cheeks and jaw line. Notice how there is some hair on the chin, and on the edge of the cheek.

Step 3.

Wow, look at these crazy lines huh? Before you begin drawing out the back of the werewolves head, you will need to draw out the pointed ears like so. Notice how I included a notch in the ear. This is for added detailing. Once that is done, you can be   

Step 4.

This is a quick example on how to draw your pointed shapes and lines. See the direction of the arrows? That is how to draw the ends of each hair chunk. Make sure they flow nicely, and evenly.

Step 5.

Step 6.

When all is done, you can color in the tribal design in a solid color. I used black, but you can choose any color you like. I hope you had fun guys!
