Draw a Wolf Face (Tutorial) by Crazdude Draw a Wolf Face (Tutorial) by Crazdude
FYI This is a tutorial for drawing with both digital art and traditional art! YAY! :dummy:


I created this completely in Illustrator but I made the observation while studying stock photos and doodling. Then tested the idea with traditional art sketches. :)

I hope this helps! I would love to hear what you have to say and see what you create!

Thanks! :heart:


Program: Adobe Illustrator CS3
Tools/Effects: Wacom tablet pen, gradients and transparencies applied to some elements, type tool for text, drop shadow applied to some elements, Pattern applied to background, Pen tool used for lines.
Raster elements: no raster elements used.


Artwork and tutorial by/copyright Carrie *Crazdude Stariha


Works best when paired with:
PEAS Method to Artistic Self-improvementI came up with the PEAS method ("PEAS" stands for: Practice, Experiment, Ask for suggestions, & Study the world around you) about 5 years ago. In that time, I've seen significant changes in my own art and in the art of others! I figured that it's time to whip up a journal and share the PEAS method again.

These are the same concepts that I shared in the journal "How did you get so good at drawing?" which I posted about 5 years ago:

PEAS METHOD TO ARTISTIC SELF-IMPROVEMENT:

Upside down one. :3 A penticle has the point pointing up. (Sorry for being a random deviant pestering you, but details because my brothers girlfriend has a penticle necklace and I'm Satanic) ^^; You can just ignore me, I just thought I'd mention it.

I never thought of it either until I was staring at tons of stock photos and realized that there were definitely 5 balanced points around the face! I'm sure someone else HAD to have found that before I did... but discovering it felt AWESOME! :la:

You should use it in a drawing and advertise this method! That would bring you tons of attention :la:

Only as long as you think tigers, cats, and goats are satanic too - the star shape applies to them as well! ;P lol But if it helps any, I made the wolf with seven steps! That's lucky! :shamrock: And not associated with death or sin AT ALL! :P Or is it? :slow: Oops! I guess I made a tutorial full of SINNNNNN! D: lol

Thanks! :la:
