How to Draw Wolverine
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Wolverine from Marvel Comics' X-Men. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: There are different versions of Wolverine, from comic books to cartoons to movies. This drawing is based on one of the designs used in the comic books, the yellow costume. Different pencilers have different styles, too, so feel free to add your own take on Wolverine!
When learning how to draw X-Men's Wolverine, start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: The first step when learning how to draw Wolverine is to draw a circle near the top half of the page. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the top of Wolverine's head. Leave enough room at the bottom to draw the lower part of Wolverine's head and on the sides for the flaps on his mask.
Step 2: Under the circle, draw an arc similar to the letter U as a guide for Wolverine's jaw and chin. The distance from the lower part of the circle to the lower part of the U-shaped arc should be about half of the original circle. Both of the shapes combined form the guide for Wolverine's head.
Step 3: On the sides of the head shape, draw two curved lines as guides for Wolverine's neck. Wolverine is short and stocky, so don't draw his neck directly under his head as with other characters. Wolverine's neck should be wider and close to the sides of the head.
Step 4: Draw a vertical line that splits the head shape in half. Draw a curved horizontal line on the lower part of the original circle that begins and ends at the ends of the U-shaped arc. Draw a small line in the space between the bottom of the main circle and the bottom of the arc. These are guide lines that will help you when learning how to draw Wolverine's facial features later.
Step 5: Draw two small oval-like shapes as guides for when you learn how to draw Wolverine's eyes later on. Place these shapes on either side of the vertical construction line, sitting right on top of the horizontal construction line.
