werewolf help sheet by dypsomaniart werewolf help sheet by dypsomaniart
I get asked occasionally for help with werewolves so I knocked up this little help sheet. I know it's pretty basic, but it has all the foundations I use to build my werewlves on. As you can see from the sample artworks I let them evolve and turn out however feels right as I'm drawing them, but the basic structure remains unchanged pretty much. It's basically a blend of human and dog/wolf physiology (as you'd expect). I don't know really how useful this will be, it's aimed at people who haven't drawn a lot and studied anatomy etc.
You can also find hair and airbrushing and blending tutorials in my gallery tutorial section which go into more depth on adding finishing details and textures.
Good luck werewolf fans!

Cheers,
Jesse

You have no clue how helpful this was.
I was going to have a very angry AP Art teacher if I didn't figure out how to paint a damn werewolf... haha
So thanks!

Oh I haven't seen it either. Just done a lot of reading on how the wolves were put together.

But there is a girl who will probably make we watch it...*shudders*

Thanks! glad you found it useful :)
I've got another couple of tutorials on technical shading techniques in my gallery 'tutorials' section, but none on the theory and understanding of colour and shadow. I recommend hitting your local library and getting some traditional painting and drawing books as they often cover the "why?" aspect as well as the "how?".
Good luck,
Jesse
