Wolverine is a superhero comics published by Marvel Comics. He is also commonly known as Logan, Wolverine is a mutant, possessing animal-keen senses, enhanced physical capabilities, three retracting bone claws on each hand and a healing factor that allows him to recover from virtually any wound, disease or toxin at an accelerated rate. His powerful healing factor enabled the supersoldier program Weapon X to bond the near-indestructible metal alloy adamantium to his skeleton and claws without killing him. He is most often depicted as a member of the X-Men.

Here is a final drawing of Wolverine.

Below are step by step how to draw Wolverine.  Step one, I just sketch a very loose sketch of a muscular male figure and his head.  Step two, once I had the pose I want from step one.  Then I can draw over the facial structure and muscle detail.  I draw in his eyes, nose, and shouting open mouth along with his signature Wolvie hair and sideburns.  Then on his body, I make sure I emphasis on his broad shoulders with large deltoids muscles with biceps and triceps, also large broad pectorals muscles.  Originally he is short but beefy so I am trying to keep him in that look.  Step three, now I shade in medium gray onto the whole figure.  Step four, at this point, I can draw and shade more detail on his hair then apply some basic shadow to overall body.  Step five, I then start to add some lighting on the muscular body.  Step six, I render and simplify his muscle structure to make them more clean and stand out.  Watch the video tutorial for in depth detail instruction of drawing and shading Wolverine.

    Something about his arms bothers me, but I’m not the pro. 😀

    Hey man, You mention that you worked on the Cthulhu series. Would that be the IDW comic series?

    If it is have you worked on any other comics? Right now I am reading The Dunwich Horror by H.P. Lovecraft, another IDW comic book.
