How to Draw a Horse

Do you think that drawing a horse is too hard? Well, you are probably right (of course except if you are a professional artist, an expert or if you have at least basic knowledge about artwork). However, you really do not need to be all that if you want to draw a cute simple horse. We can all be artistic, only if we have a little bit imagination.

Lets bring out your artistic side and see what happens. All that you will need is paper, pencil and remember to bring up your good mood. Through this short tutorial we will explain you the easiest way to draw a horse, no matter if you’re a grownup- beginner or a kid that loves to learn out how to draw this magnificent animal.  You can play fun pony games and see their artwork. Although we know that more details mean better explanation, we will however try to keep it short and simple. Find out how to draw a horse through these easy steps:

Step 1: Did you ever imagine that two circle shapes will be the beginning of a beautiful artwork? Now, draw 2 circles next to each other with a little bit space between them.Make a light square around them, which will give you the size and the length of the legs.

Step 2: draw a triangle that will be connected to the first circle on the left. This triangle will later present you the neck of the horse. Meanwhile, if you need a break you can play pony online games and then back to work!

Step 3: Put a block at the end of the triangle and another one, a bit smaller, next to the first block. The horse does not stand on his front legs vertically, so take a line slightly leaning back where you will draw a small triangle shape on the bottom. Draw a circle round about a half away down for the joint of the leg. The same applies at the back, so draw a line from the second circle which will come down at an angle and also comes to the bottom creating a small triangle as well.

Step 4: This is the basic shape for your horse, so now it is time to develop and work over it, and thus curve the lines. Start with the head drawing two ears. Then curve the lines of the blocks very slightly. Curve down the neck (the triangle) from both sides to the circle and bring that curve down across the shoulders, round the back and round again to the legs.

Step 5: The top of the legs are powerful for the horse, so bring a curve from around the middle of the circle and bring it down slightly to the curve where the joint will be (the small circle) and round the back of the hoof (small triangle). Do the same for the front part of the leg. That will be the basic leg for the horse. Do the same thing for the back leg. Depending of the breed of the horse, the curve that you will make for the stomach can curve in different ways.

Step 6: To draw the other two legs all you have to do is to imagine the top part of the basic legs as arc that swing through. Spin them round from the point of the joints and draw circles for the other two legs. You must also draw lightly a triangle at the bottom. Bring the front leg forward and finish them little bit shorter than the legs that you draw first.

Final step: Be creative and draw few lines for the tail. Draw a mane , nose and an eye. Outline the horse, but be careful to follow the guide that you already drew, not drawing the outline far away from the shapes. Rub out all shapes that you draw in the inside and erase the guidelines that you made. Shades will give your horse a whole new look, make it more realistic and it will change the meaning of your artwork.

Now that you are all done with the hard work you can treat yourself with cool pony games for kids and enjoy your job well done.
