You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start by choosing your pencils. I used a 4H pencil for the light lines/shading, a B pencil for the dark lines/details, and a 4B pencil for the darkest shadows.
Start with a basic sketch, using the instructions if you need to.
Your sketch should look something like this. I used a 4H pencil for sketching but any pencil should work. Try to remove any lines you don’t need.
Using pencil B, start drawing lines and shading. Start with the eyes. Don’t worry about getting a lot of different values/shades, just try to grow what you already have and hint in the direction the fur flows.
Work your way to the ear. Again, pay attention to the direction in which the hairs flow. Don’t just scribble in random lines.
Now shade in the muzzle.
Now start shading the wolf’s mane. Pay attention to how the coat looks as you add to your lines.
Outline the rest of the coat.
Now start adding a final layer of shadow by starting over with the eyes. Use the 4B pencil to create the darkest shadows. Rely on the 4H and B pencils to shade the bristles. Use 4H for light hair and B for dark hair/hair.
Shade on the other eye and some hair on the forehead.
Work on two ears at a time. I decided to keep going.
Now the shade in the remaining ear.
Go ahead and shade in the muzzle. Use pencil B to add some whiskers.
Start working with the top layer of the mane and the rest of the hair on the head. Use quick strokes with a 4H pencil to simulate fur. Try using a creased stump or kneadable eraser to smooth your coat if you need to.
Move down to the next coat and use the same techniques as before.
Ready the drawing for the final coat. I used a blend stump to smooth the area before continuing with the 4H and B pencils. I also colored the darkest hairs with the 4B pencil.
Finish your drawing by shading the rest of the fur. I decided to blend the feathers around the bottom of the drawing but you can leave it detailed if you want. I also shaded my background using the 4B pencil and blend stump. I hope you all find this helpful!
