How to Draw a Wolverine Animal

Wolverines are large mammals that are most commonly identified by their long, sharp claws. They are often compared to bears because of their shape and are defined by their muscular structure and dark colour. The key to drawing a wolverine is to properly proportion its head and body and accurately capture the small details, such as facial expressions or fur patterns. Make sure to use light lines until you are confident that they are correct; then you may darken them.

  1. 1

    Sketch the general outline of the wolverine's body on a piece of drawing paper with a pencil. The head should be shaped very similarly to that of a bear, and the body should be about three times the length of the head. The tail is about half the body length and very bushy, and the wolverine should be standing on four legs that are as long as the head from nose to neck.

  2. 2

    Use the tip of your pencil to create triangular wispy shapes along the entire outside edge of the wolverine's body and legs to create a shaggy fur effect.

  3. 3

    Add the facial features to the wolverine. The eyes should be small, round, and dark. Make two small, circular ears toward the back of the head.

  4. 4

    Draw in any other features to the wolverine you wish to include, such as the five sharp, curved claws that come from each paw and the small, pointed teeth that line the mouth.

  5. 5

    Use the side of your pencil to shade the wolverine in. Wolverines tend to have very dark patches that spread over their back, head, and legs. The stomach, shoulder blades, and the nose tend to be a lighter brown or even white.

  6. 6

    Use an eraser to remove any uneven or overlapping lines.
