Wolves, More Lessons

Hi there how are you?

Last week I was drawing foxes from the Aaron Blaise course “how to draw wolves’ coyotes and foxes” I had started at the end with foxes because I think they’re cute but felt I was missing something.

At the beginning, in the wolf section he covered bone structure, muscles, legs and feet. I was missing feet! (All those little toes and pads.)This is what I get for starting at the end of the course!

I started with the head, he was drawing digitally using a photo of the skull to draw around and show where everything was in relation to the skull. I should have printed one out it would have been a great help, instead I winged it meh.

I drew everything with a red crayola pencil (not so easy to rub out) you can still see the pencil here and there in the two water-coloured heads.

I drew along with the video stopping it when I fell behind. There’s certainly a lot of information to take in here and although at the moment I’m using it for wolves and foxes it’s also going to be useful for drawing other animals too, lots of animals have similar bone structure.
The wolf gestures are a bit cartoonish, I’d expect that since he is a big animator and Disney artist.

I haven’t gotten around to colouring them in yet, or maybe I’ll draw them again with a graphite pencil and tidy them up a little.

They’re a lot of fun to draw, if I can pack all of this information into my head I may be able to draw some wolves of my own, I’m going to need some reference though.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Till next time, have fun x
