How to Draw a Gray Wolf
The gray wolf also known as the timber wolf has features like a German Shepherd. The wolf’s coloring is a mix of gray and brown and other colors like white. They have a slender but powerful body and are strong for their size. The gray wolves’ head is large to body size with a wide forehead and small triangular ears. When alerted the gray wolf will raise their head but will otherwise carry their head at body level.

- Lightly sketch a line that represents the Gray Wolf’s backbone. For example, if the wolf is standing the line would be horizontal.
- Lightly sketch in lines to represent the tail and legs.
- Draw in basic shapes such as circles to represent the head and feet, triangles for the ears and an oval shape for the nose and eyes.
- Sketch in the fullness of the body around basic shape lines. Adjust as needed using an eraser and redrawing.
- Add details like eyes, nails and hair re-adjusting as necessary.
