Step 1

First off, draw two circles, and connect them so that they form a basic body shape.


Step 2

Then, a little ways up,(about half a body circle), draw a small circle for part of the head. Connect it with lines that curve opposite from the other.



Step 3

To the left of the small circle, draw the last part of the head and connect the two together. On top of the first head circle, draw a little arch. This will be the guide for the ears.


Step 4

Halfway up the arch draw a two lines to complete the ears. You can start to draw the mane at this point.


Step 5

I like to start with the back legs when drawing. Draw two lines facing backwards, then down. Horses back legs do not go straight down at first.



Step 6

To draw the hoof, and the end of the leg fo inward and form a small curve. After the curve draw two slanted lines, connected by a slightly curvy one.


Step 7

Draw the front leg now. Do not start the leg at the base of the neck! Draw it slightly inward of it. The front leg it almost perfectly straight, but it is angled in a small amount.


Step 8

The legs behind are just imitating the legs in front in the pose this horse is in. You can draw the tail at this point too, if you want.


Step 9

Lastly, add shape to the face and erase any lines you dont need. And you're done!
