How To Draw A Werewolf - Fantasy Drawing Tutorial

How to draw a werewolf, This is a drawing tutorial that shows you how to draw a wolfman. Werewolves are classic creatures to draw as they always look good when you try and draw them like the classic 1950's wolfman and to draw them with a canine element that's mixed with a human one is better for the werewolf to shine.

The beginning sketches are really basic, but they are needed to find your way with the werewolf drawing itself. Here below is the first drawing and it is the usual way of laying out simple figures that I have become used to, so study how the muscles and the form of each figure that you draw relates to each other and work it all out on the paper.

The second sketch is trying to examine where you go from the first sketch, it is about building up the wolfman's body structure and refining everything along the way. Muscles are worked out more here in this step and we lose much of the circular muscle shapes I used to start off the basic figure drawing.

The third step in the werewolf drawing process is to see the figure develop further and also starting to create more hair for the werewolf to look authentic, especially the head we can see the wolfman looking more realistic as a fantasy wolfman. Also note that in the background I've started to add a few mountains and a few clouds, in the inking stage I will draw a full moon to set off the wolfman drawing more.

The werewolf is looking more and more wolfman like now with it's ripped clothes, so try and aim for something along these lines.....

The last step of drawing a werewolf, I have decided to ink the complete pencil drawing with more added detail and the drawing looks more realised now with the fine line art work added in an almost comic book style.

Drawing a werewolf is a classic movie monster and look for more drawing tutorials from me soon featuring other classic movie creatures to draw.
