We hope that you have a great time working on this step-by-step guide on how to draw a cartoon werewolf in just 9 fun and easy steps!
How to Draw A Cartoon Werewolf – Let’s get Started!
We will begin this cartoon werewolf drawing by drawing the start of the head and face outlines of the monster.
First, use some curved lines with pointy tips at the top for the ears, and then add some inner ear lines inside the outline.
We will then use a curved line for the top of the head, and then pointier ones for the furry back of the head.
Then, you can draw a big, round nose that has the muzzle attached to it. Finish off by drawing the snarling, toothy mouth, and then we can move on!
Step 2 – Next, draw his eyes and eyebrows
This step of our guide on how to draw a cartoon werewolf will be about adding some eyes and eyebrows to give him a fierce expression! First, let’s draw his large eyebrows.
These will have smooth bases with some pointy shapes for the tops of them.
Then, the eyes will be added as some rounded shapes beneath these eyebrows, and they will have some round pupils inside of them.
Add a dot to each pupil, and then we can proceed!
Step 3 – Now, draw his back
We will keep things simple for this step of the guide! You will begin drawing his back in this step, and the aim will be to make him look really furry and ragged.
For that reason, we will be drawing a large curved line for his back, but it will have some pointy tips poking off of it, as shown in the reference image.
That’s all there is to it for now, and then we can proceed!
Step 4 – Next, draw his furry chest
This fourth step of your cartoon werewolf drawing will also be rather simple, and it will be similar to the previous step.
For this one, we will be drawing his chest, and it will take on a similar curved, pointy appearance to his back.
This time, the line will be much shorter, however. It will extend down from the base of his jaw, and then we can add to this area soon.
Step 5 – Now, add his arms
Now, we shall add some fearsome arms to your creation in this step of our guide on how to draw a cartoon werewolf.
These arms will be bent up towards his head to make it look like he is creeping around. We will draw the arms using similarly curved, spiky lines to the back and chest.
Finally, add some rounded fingers with pointy claws before we proceed!
Step 6 – Next, draw his waist
We will again keep things rather simple for this sixth step of the guide. For this one, we will be drawing his waist and the top of the trousers that he is wearing.
We will draw these pants soon, but for now you can draw some short lines coming down from his arm and chest.
Then, we will draw a thin, horizontal shape with pointy bits coming down from it to show the torn rim of his pants.
Step 7 – Draw his pants
You drew the rim of the pants for this cartoon werewolf in the previous step, but in this one we will draw the pants themselves.
They will be quite short and will be drawn using some simple curved lines. We also want the rims of each leg to look torn and ragged, so they will be drawn with jagged lines as well.
That’s all for now, and then we can finish off the final details in the next step!
Step 8 – Next, draw his legs
This step of our guide on how to draw a cartoon werewolf will see you finishing off the final elements.
We will be drawing the rest of his legs in this one, and they will look a bit like a dogs legs. Use some curved lines for the legs, and then add some rounded toes at the ends.
Once these legs are drawn, you could also create a spooky background to finish this off nicely! What kind of setting can you think of for this cartoon werewolf?
Step 9 – Now finish it off with some color
It’s time to complete your amazing artwork with some colors! This is a step where you can unleash all of your amazing creativity and flair, and there is a lot you can do to color it.
We used some great purples and blues for his fur while using brown for his pants.
Do you think you will go for a similar color scheme, or will you go for a different approach?
