How to Draw a Wolf Pup - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Start out by drawing the wolf pup's head. It should look a lot like the head of a puppy dog--wide at the top with a longer, narrow nose.

Step 2: Next draw the ears, eyes and nose. The ears are big and pointy, like triangles. For the eye, draw an oval in the middle of the head. For the nose, draw a half-circle. Did you know? Wolf pups are born blind and deaf, meaning they can't see or hear!

Step 3: Now draw the body and tail. The body is a long straight line, and the tail is short and curves upward. The tail also comes to a point at the end.

Step 4: Draw the front leg. Don't forget to draw small lines separating the wolf pup's toes.

Step 5: Now draw the belly and the hind leg. The leg should be wide and muscular at the top and much skinnier at the bottom.

Step 6: Finish the details on your wolf pup's body by drawing the other legs. When you're finished, think about coloring your pup. Wolf pups are raised by the whole pack of wolves, not just the parents. Be sure to draw your pup's community too!
