How to Draw Teen Wolf

Artist: catlucker / June 17, 2011

Step 1.

Draw the oval lightly with a No.2 pencil. The frame gives you an idea of how much room this character will take.

Step 2.

Now lightly draw the bisecting line.

Step 3.

The first crescent line is for the back of his hair and ear. The second crescent is for his hairline.

Step 4.

Lightly draw these guidelines to help place the facial features. a.) are for his eyebrows, b.) are for his eyes, c.) is for the bottom of his nose, d.) is for his mouth.

Step 5.

Now you can sketch in the eyebrows and his eyes with pupils.

Step 6.

This strange lower body appearance, looking like a bean bag keeps his torso in perspective. Draw his nose, mouth. Now sketch in the round, curved lines like in the picture. Make sure you don't forget that bottom little hill. It's the placement for be   

Step 7.

This is more detailed. Add in his hair, along with the curls & fluff. Now if you can't see where his shirt starts or stops, look at the introduction picture or the other steps below for reference.

Step 8.

Compare your picture to this one. Your picture might look like this. Make adjustments if he doesn't appear crouched over like this. If you want to add the trees, you can.

Step 9.

This is how your picture might look without the guidelines. If you haven't erased them yet, now is a good time.

Step 10.

Sketch in the shadows and his facial tone. You can use the blunt part of your pencil to cover more areas. Circular or straight lines cover well. The next steps will help with techniques like toning, shading, highlighting, etc.

Step 11.

OVERHAND: Holding your pencil in the normal writing position. It gives you great control and thin/detailed strokes. UNDERHAND: The pencil is at a 45 degrees or near level to the table with end of pencil under your palm. Have pencil on its flat side.    

Step 12.

Print these pictures out for great tone shading practice. Follow the toning value in the filled in shapes.

Step 13.

Click on this picture for tone, shading, texture, and reflective light tips.

Step 14.

For highlight tips, click on this picture! Now that you are more familiar with these techniques, the next steps you can apply them and see where it takes you.

Step 15.

As you blend more, do you see how your picture becomes richer with tone and texture? This is like molding clay. If you find a mistake, erase it, look closer to your reference picture. Then redraw that small area and shade.

Step 16.

We have come to the fun part! Take that white paint and highlight his hair, face, and parts of his shirt. I used scarlet acrylic paint for the blood splotches. I tried to whiten his eyes and apply some yellow. It didn't work. The picture was too smal   

Step 17.

You know, I couldn't leave this picture totally in pencil. You don't have to either. Try giving some blood splatters on Scott and his shirt. Add that extra umph to his eyes and hair. Scary looking, isn't he? Hey, I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. I ho

Description: MTV has rebooted this 1985 movie, β€œTeen Wolf.” The title is where it stops. This version has focused on romance, horror, and some juicy action! Problem is, I wanted to watch this soooo much and missed it. If the television can give me a juicy Vampire-Diaries type of storytelling, I'm there! So I am very happy to present you a tutorial on this Scott McCall transitioning back to human. Hmmm... what did he kill? I hope you enjoy this tutorial. Let me know. Fav, comment, or even vote! Thanks everyone!
