In this lesson, we will try to show you the most simplified, but at the same time the best way to draw Wolverine’s claws. We will show you, how to draw claws from three different points of view. Train to draw claws from all sides, and you learn to draw them perfectly. So let’s start the tutorial!


Step 1

First, sketch out the contours of the fist. In the first stage, do not try to draw it perfectly. You only need to sketch the general contours. Then using simple lines sketch out the claws. In various versions, the length of the claws can be different.  You can draw them of any length, but the distance between them must be the same.

As mentioned above, we will show how to draw Wolverine claws from three sides, that is, front, back, and side.

Step 2

Start to add details. First, outline the fingers and knuckles. Then add volume to the claws. Note that the claws narrow from the place where they come out from the fists to the ends. Also, note that the middle claw visually seems longer than the others.

Now erase the guidelines. Accurately trace the lines of the claws. Make them more smooth and neat. Remember to make sure that the claws are at the same distance from each other. Add some wrinkles and folds of skin to the fists and move to the final step.
