Step 1: What You Need and How to Draw Hair.

You will need a drawing pencil, charcoal pencil, red pencil and some paper.

Later on in the tutorial you will need to know how to draw hair so above is pictures showing how to draw hair like in this picture.

Step 2: Drawing the Basic Shapes.

First draw a rectangle and draw a line down the middle then about a third of the way down the side of the rectangle start the line for the triangular shape for the side of the face.make sure the end point of the jaw line meets the line that goes through the center of the rectangle.Now do the same on the other side. Finally draw the shape of the ears starting from start point of the jaw line.

Step 3: Adding the Snout and Mouth.

Working from the center line draw the outline of the wolf nose and draw,  now working outwards from the nose and draw an arc but make sure to bring to the line back around to the center line.Draw in the teeth and gums of the top of the mouth and then draw the bottom set of teeth and gums.Now draw the bottom of the mouth using wispy lines to make it look more like hair.draw some curves between where the eyes and the nose/top of mouth will be to make him look like he's snarling.

Step 4: The Eyes

Draw circles where the eyes will be then draw the outline of the eyes around the circles. Slant them towards the nose to make him look angry.

Step 5: Making the Hairy Outline.

You can now begin making the shape of the werewolf face.Using the techniques shown on the first page of the tutorial draw wispy flowing lines where the hair is longer and thick and use short spiky lines where the hair is shorter.the hair on the top of the head is shorter than the hair around the side of the face and neck. Use short pencil strokes on the top side of the ear where the hair is shorter and use longer more flowing strokes on the other side where the hair is thinner and longer. I'm not keeping to the original basic outline these are just guidelines for the actual shape.

Step 6: How Your Pcture Should Look by Now

This is how your picture should look by now.You can use an eraser to get rid of the original outlines and neaten everything up.

Step 7: Making Him Really Hairy

Using the techniques i showed you at the beginning of the tutorial add more hair.Around the sides of the face the hair flows downwards and on the top of the head the hairs are short and spike outwards.

Step 8: Build Up the Hair.

Build up the hair and shade the mouth and inner ears.

Step 9: Final Step.

Use the red pencil to color in the eyes and use the charcoal pencil to darken some features like the eyes and nose.You can use the red pencil to color blood on the teeth and fur around the mouth.

    Very cool -- you have quite some skill. I would have liked to see more definition technique, primarily on the shading of the hair.
