How to Draw a Wolf

The gray wolf (scientific name, Canis lupus) is an animal both feared and admired. The ancestors of domestic dogs, wolves are known for their iconic howling. They are large pack hunters that can weigh as much as 175 pounds.

Some cultures fear the wolf - in many parts of their range, throughout Europe and North America, wolves have been hunted almost to extinction by farmers hoping to protect their livestock.

To some Native American tribes, however, wolves are sacred animals. For example, among the Cherokee, only members of the family line known as the Wolf Clan could kill a wolf, and then only under certain circumstances. Wolves still play a pivotal role in Native American art - as well as popular culture - today.
