I can't find a good tutorial anywhere on drawing wolf chibis. I have a rough idea, but nothing really set in stone. Does anyone have any tutorials/help/tips on drawing them? It'd be much appreciated. Thank you!

Thank you Sebastian : )

@Forevs; I don't find it as easy as that; the anatomy is off and minimized and I have trouble with the proportions.

Figured it out a bit though, however it is still challenging.

Nono, I mean I simply cannot draw one very easily. The anatomy is hard. It's not the paper size or actual drawing of something; just the concept of actually drawing one.

I find them hard, too. :(

It's not just drawing small. The proportions are supposed to be wonky on purpose: Larger heads and facial features; Short, stubby arms and legs and simplified hands/paws.

Now I'm no expert, but maybe draw the nose, eyes and tail more darker then work around those with the rest of your lines to make the piece for "pudgier" or "chibish" :)

Hope that helps!

make sure the nose is big and shiny; it really adds to the cuteness factor
all i do is just make the wolf more stubbier, with big podgy paws and a huge fluffy tail. i also make their cheeks extremely fluffy and i make their eyes more like black ovals; like the eyes in adventure time. if i had a new tablet or a new laptop i'd whip something up :( i'm sorry if this hasn't helped at all lmao

I think because this is more of a style rather then anything real, there really isn't anything set in stone on "how" to do it. It's largely interpretation and style choice. But, "chibis" generally to me are like baby or child versions of the real thing. Like others have said, think chubby and small. I would also think of cherubs (those baby angle things... kind sorta fit along this line? They are mini angels).
