To draw a Wolf running step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle near the middle of the paper as a guide for the front part of the wolf's body. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: On the left side, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the back section of the body. The wolf will be stretched out as it runs, so don't draw the circles too close together, otherwise the wolf's body will be too scrunched up.
Step 3: Draw another circle on the right side as a guide for the head. This circle should be a bit smaller than the circle for the back section of the wolf's body. This circle's edge should barely touch the first circle, and it should be placed slightly higher.
Step 4: On the right side of the head, draw a small, U-shaped arc as a guide for the muzzle. Pay attention to the size of this arc in relation to the rest of the wolf's head.
Step 5: On top of the head, draw two small triangle-like shapes as guides for the wolf's ears. These guides should form a shape similar to the letter M.
