Start by sketching your wolf onto your canvas in pencil. Next, begin to fill in the basic colors of the wolf. Use a light brown for the fur, a dark brown for the areas in shadow, and white for the highlights.
Once you have the basic colors down, start working in the details. Use a variety of pastels to add texture and depth to the fur. For the shadows, use a darker brown or even black. And for the highlights, use a lighter brown or white.
Keep working until you're happy with the results, then step back and admire your handiwork!
