Step 7: Darken the small circle on the left side for the wolf's first eye. At the top, draw a sloping line over the eye for the eyelid. Extend the line outside of the eye toward the bottom. On the top, left side, draw a series of short, strokes for the outer corner of the wolf's eye. Draw a curved line below the small circle for the outer edge of the eye. Use the circle on the right as a guide to draw the other eye the same way. Darken the circle and make the sides of the shape pointier for the corners of the eye. Add some short strokes on the top, right side and a curved line under the circle.

Draw the wolf's other nostril the same way. Curve the left edge inward and draw a tiny half-circle at the end for the actual nostril. Darken the bottom edge of the oval. At the bottom, add a pointy shape with a vertical line inside.
