Do you know anything about such a character as the werewolf? I think you may have seen it in various movies, video games, or cartoons.
The werewolf is a human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf, either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction, or after a bite or scratch by another werewolf, with the transformations occurring on the night of a full moon.
Even though this character seems scary and dangerous, we will depict him in a cartoon style, so he will look quite cute. Below I will show you how to correctly draw various monsters in a more cute and cartoon style.
Now you should prepare your drawing materials and you can start making this drawing.

How to Draw a Werewolf
- Draw the outline of the werewolf’s head.
To depict the outline of the head of this character, you should use a curved line. I draw a werewolf in a cartoon style, which means that his face is much more round than that of a realistic monster.
- Add the outline of the ears and hair.
On the head, draw two pointed ears using curved lines, and add hair with a zigzag line. The shape and position of the ears help show the turn of the werewolf’s head.
- Depict the facial features.
Draw eyes as two same ovals and add the nose and mouth, using curved lines. In addition to what you see in my example, you can add protruding fangs.
- Outline the torso and legs.
Add a few curved lines below the previously drawn head of the werewolf. For a more cartoonish and cute look, I made the proportions less realistic.
- Depict the arms of the monster.
Add the lines on the sides of the torso. Both arms are bent, one partially covered by the torso. The arms should taper smoothly from the shoulders to the wrists.
- Add the hands and waistline.
Outline pointed fingers on the werewolf’s hands and a straight line on his torso. To make it more cartoonish, I decided to draw four fingers on each hand.
- Sketch the feet and the elements on the legs.
At the bottom of the werewolf’s legs, add the feet and toe lines. Next, using curved lines draw the bottom torn edge of the jeans.
- Erase unnecessary lines.
Use an eraser to remove auxiliary lines that appeared during the drawing process. In addition, remove all inaccuracies and inconsistencies that you find in your artwork.
- Color the werewolf drawing.
To color the werewolf you drew, you should use gray, blue, and black. Or you can use brown for the fur and any other color for the pants.
This concludes our drawing lesson, and I hope you enjoyed it! Don’t forget to download the PDF file which contains a short version of this drawing lesson and some additional useful materials.
Werewolf Face Drawing Tutorial
In this instruction, in order to depict a werewolf, you will draw the face of a wolf. In essence, drawing a werewolf’s head is not much different from sketching a wolf’s face, but it may have its own characteristics.
For example, eyebrows, and their position can give the drawing of any animal a more human look. Here I just applied this technique. Try it and you will learn how to do it.
The skills you gained during this lesson will definitely help you in the future for drawing many of your interesting paintings.
The werewolf is a very creepy creature, but as you can see, using the right techniques, even he can be given a very cute and friendly appearance.
In addition, you may have noticed that the process of drawing a werewolf is something between drawing a person and a wolf. Actually, this is not surprising, because a werewolf is something between a human and a wolf.
