HOW TO DRAW A HORSE?

Here is a simple way of drawing a horse. I found this lesson on www.howstuffworks.com and thought that it would be a wonderful lesson for my art students.


Step 1: Draw a kidney-bean shape for the body and a peanut shape for the head. Add a rectangular form between them for the neck.


Step 2: Draw the two front legs. Sketch the closest back leg in two pieces, one pear shape and one rectangular shape. Add a rectangular shape for the back leg on the far side of the horse. Put in ovals for the ears.


Step 3: Draw two long S shapes for the tail and mane. Add the small mane on top of the head. Next, we'll add some personality and detail.


Step 4: Draw ovals for the eyes, nostrils, and ear details. Put pupils in the eyes. Add hooves at the bottom of each leg. Finish this step with lines for the mouth, tail, and mane details.


Step 5: Draw ovals for the eyes, nostrils, and ear details. Put pupils in the eyes. Add hooves at the bottom of each leg. Finish this step with lines for the mouth, tail, and mane details.

Now, you can color the horse. Put it in varied settings. You can put in on a ranch, on the race track, on the farm, on a carriage, or with a cowboy riding it!
