Step 1: Wolf’s Nose and Face

To begin, draw an oval shape for the wolf’s nose. Color the nose with crayons to add some vibrancy. Next, draw two curved lines resembling a slide on either side of the nose, forming the basis for the wolf’s face.

Step 2: Complete the Wolf’s Face

Now, let’s focus on the wolf’s face. Draw a wide upside-down U-shape above the slide-like lines, creating the head of the wolf. Add sharp zigzag lines on each side of the face, connecting them with a curved line at the bottom. To give the wolf a mouth, draw two wavy lines beneath the nose, forming a smiley expression.

Step 3: Wolf’s Eyes and Ears

In this step, we’ll add eyes and ears to complete the wolf’s facial features. Draw two long ovals for the eyes and two pointed, triangular-shaped ears on top of the wolf’s head.

Step 4: Facial Detail and Wolf’s Body

Let’s add some detail to the eyes and ears we just drew. Draw smaller ovals within the eyes and color them in to give the wolf a captivating gaze. Enhance the ears by adding triangular shapes inside. Moving on to the body, draw a curved line from the left side of the wolf’s face, extending downwards. Repeat this on the right side, starting slightly below the zigzagged edge. Connect the paws with a curved line, giving the wolf a fuller appearance.

Step 5: Wolf’s Legs

Now, let’s draw the legs of our wolf. Starting from the left side of the fur, draw two parallel vertical lines that curve at the bottom to form the paws. Repeat this on the right side, completing the front legs.

Step 6: Wolf’s Body

We’ll now sketch the body of the wolf. Draw a curved line starting from the first zigzagged edge on the left side, extending just above the paw. Repeat this step on the right side, beginning below the zigzagged edge. Add a curved line between the paws to give the body a more defined shape. To emphasize the paw, draw small vertical curves at the end of the wave-like shape.

Step 7: Wolf’s Hind Legs

Continuing from the previous step, we’ll draw the remaining legs of the wolf. From the bottom of the wolf’s body, draw a wide U-shape and round the edge, connecting it to the paw with a horizontal line. Repeat this on the other side. Add rounded curves near the edges of each leg to enhance their appearance. Congratulations! Our wolf now has four legs and appears to be sitting.

Step 8: Wolf’s Tail

To complete our drawing, let’s give the wolf a tail. Draw a large curved line on the right side of the wolf’s face, extending towards the space next to the wolf. Make the curve as wide as possible. From the end of the curve, draw a wavy line connecting to the halfway point of the wolf’s body. Finish the tail by drawing a curved line from the wolf’s face, touching its fur, and ending at the body.
