Step-by-Step Tutorial for Drawing an Anime Wolf Girl

2. Use small circles and curved lines to draw the girl's eyes. The bottoms of the eyes should nearly join the horizontal guideline.
Use a curved line to indicate the nose below the horizontal line, and center the open, smiling mouth over the vertical line.

4. Next, draw the triangular shapes of the wolf ears. Notice that there are several jagged points at the tips, indicating tufts of fur.
Note, too, that since the ears are seen from different angles, they are different widths. Embellish and texture the sides and insides of the ears with short curved lines. Finally, finish drawing the jagged lines of the girl's short hair.

10. Color your wolf girl cartoon.
Did you know? You can't see this girl's human ears because they are hidden behind her hair, but kemonomimi characters usually have the full complement of human features.
Sometimes, they are elfin creatures with pointed ears. Their animal ears may be a permanent part of their body, a body feature that magically appears under certain circumstances, or a piece of fashion attire like a headband that can be removed at will.
