Wolves are one of the main leading figures in myths and legends across the world, and these tales all have at least one thing in common: the mysterious wolf is often depicted howling at the moon. Want to bring this scene to life for yourself? Then let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by taking a black pen and a ruler, and drawing a large square in the center of your page.
Now, add a “point” to the right of this, and take this across to an “n” shape on the left. Bring a curved line down from the bottom of the “n”.
Add a wavy line to the top…
And then extend the line down on the right.
Return to the left, and take the line down towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page. Then, bring it straight down, and add a “hook” to the right.
Continue the line up and across to create a tall oval shape at the bottom…
And then add a large “L” shape to the bottom. This will be your wolf’s back leg.
Add another leg to the right of the first, and curve the line up towards the top right-hand corner of the page.
Add another leg to the front…
And then connect the front and back of the wolf together with a curved line.
Add another leg just behind the front one…
And then add a small circle to the tip of the nose.
Add a curved line behind this, and then a small crescent moon shape above this line.
Continue the line across and up to a point, then take it down and in, out in a “U” shape, and curve it down and across. Add a point to the bottom, and then connect it to the left of the body.
Add a “forked” shape in the crook of the neck, and then add a “n” shape beside this for an ear.
Add another curve just above the bottom of the oval…
And then add a large circle all around the head of the wolf. Use a black pen and ruler to draw a slanted line across the bottom of the smaller square.
Shade the crescent moon shape on the face, and the circle of the nose, with a black pen.
Next, use a brown pen to shade the space beneath the angled line, and the top section of your wolf coat.
Use a light brown pencil for the rest of the body…
And then use a rich blue pen to shade the top background.
Now, you have your very own mysterious, majestic wolf, howling at the bright moon. What is his story, and where will he go? This is truly up to you…
