How to Draw Werewolf Heads - Different Angles and Poses

1 Mane Styles Profile View

There's just so many ways to draw the manes of werewolf characters. Generally, what I like to do is mix different types of predatory animals that are similar in breed like (lions, tigers, wolverines, eagle heads, etc) to give the wolf's mane a bit mo   

2 Mouth Positions

Here are 3 varieties to draw the werewolf's mouth. I drew up the first, which is closed relaxed expression, the semi open/tense mouth, and the fully open/super intense mouth. Notice how the muzzle is more defined with contours of the snout. This is v   

3 Varied Head Poses

I've also drawn 2 views to draw a werewolf; 1) from the front, so you can observe how the snout/mouth/nose and eyes should be drawn from this angle, as well as 2) the 3/4 view which is what people tend to draw most because it is a balanced angle to d   

4 Guidelines

Start with a simple circle for the head/face and then sketch in the facial guidelines.

5 Flared Cheeks

Using the shape you just made, go ahead and draw in the very thick tufts of fur that make up the werewolf's cheeks. Also, draw in the shoulders as well. Notice

6 Straight - Long Ears

Now you can draw in the very erect ears along with the top lining of the head shape.

7 Detailing

Detail inside the ears and begin to sketch out detailing and definition to the werewolf's fur.

8 Muzzle and Eyes

Use the facial guidelines to draw in the eyes and then the snarling nose bridge. Werewolves are known to have a very aggressive face expression to be sure to add those crinkles on the nose.

9 Mouth and Chin

Go ahead and draw the jaw which is open and snarling. You will also draw in the nose and chin too. Detail along the way.

10 Teeth and Tongue

Fill inside the beasts mouth with a nice set of teeth. Also make the gum line visible too.


Add shading throughout the way you see it done for you here.

12 Finished Line Art

The finished product is as shown.

13 Guidelines

The side profile of the werewolf needs to start with some basic guides and shapes. These establish the proportions for the face.

14 Muzzle Shape

Draw the forehead and snout using the guides you just drew. Be sure to make that deep crinkle indent to the snout as well.

15 Lower Jaw and Mane/Cheeks

Draw the ears and then create the jawline, chin and fur on the sides of the face. Notice how the fur is again, flared and tensed up in simple sections. The ears for this wolf will be drawn slightly smaller to add a bit of variety to the character.

16 Facials and Snout

We can draw in the eye and then the rest of the wrinkles on the nose. The creases in the snout should be drawn in sections like shown to add intensity to the impression of the wolf. Color in the area around the eyeball.

17 Teeth Shapes

Starting with the upper row, give this werewolf some teeth as you can see them done for you here. The teeth line up nicely.

18 Mane Shape

Create that layered look when it comes to drawing out the spiked fur all over the werewolf's head. This makes up the design of this monstrous creature.

19 Shading the Wolf

Let's add dimension to the wolf and shade parts of the wolf create a fuller looking form. Remember to mind your light sourcing too!

20 Final Line Art

And here is the black and white version of this werewolf!

21 Guidelines

Draw a circle and sketch in the guides inside the circle for the face.

22 Snout and Lower Jaw

Begin drawing the structure for the werewolf's forehead, snout, mouth and chin.

23 Facials and Snout Detailing

Draw in the eyes, wrinkles, crinkles and creases on the snout and then draw in the nose.

24 Mouth and Pupil Detailing

Detail the corners of the mouth and color in some intense pupils.

25 Teeth and Tongue

Draw in those sharp teeth and color in the inside of the mouth. Don't forget to draw the tongue too.

26 Ears and Cheeks

Then, draw the long erect ears, as well as tuffs of fur around the cheeks and ears to add 'fluff' to the creature.

27 Mane Shape

Then, let's draw the flared backside of the neck and the extra layer of fur encompassing the cheek area.

28 Shading the 3/4 Wolf

Let's add dimension to the wolf and shade parts of the wolf create a fuller looking form. Remember to mind your light sourcing too!
