Earlier I already posted a tutorial on how to draw Wolverine for children. But that lesson was a little difficult for kindergartners and elementary school students. Therefore, I decided to create an even simpler lesson about this comic character.

In this tutorial, Wolverine is standing in a very simple frontal pose, which greatly simplifies the drawing process. In addition, we will draw Wolverine in chibi style, which will also greatly simplify the task.

If this lesson seems too simple, then of course you can try to complicate the drawing by adding additional details or go to my more complicated Wolverine drawing tutorial.

So are you ready? If so, let’s start the tutorial!

  • Paper

  7. Detail the legs.

    Draw the legs of Logan and his boots in detail. Don’t forget to draw the folds on fabrics that look like short horizontal lines. By the way, in my opinion, these are the most unusual and interesting boots in comic books.Wolverine drawing tutorial

  8. Color the Wolverine drawing.

    Now let’s add some color to the drawing. I prefer the most famous Wolverine’s suit so I used yellow and blue colors. You can change the blue and yellow color to brown so that you get old school Wolverine.
