Begin by examining

Consider a few pictures with the horses.Better if it will be drawings, not photographs or paintings.Note the shape of the body, head, legs.Imagine the axial line of the trunk, neck, head, and feet.Determine the angles at which these lines are positioned relative to each other and to the horizon.Estimate the approximate ratio of the axial dimensions.

Sketch main lines

sheet lay horizontally.Drawing animals can be a hard pencil.Swipe through the entire sheet horizontal line a short distance from the lower edge of the sheet.This is an important benchmark by which you will build the rest of the line.In parallel, horizontal lines are drawn center line of the body.It can go and at a slight angle up or down.On this line mark the length of the torso.Mark the pl
ace where the neck is.Draw a line of the neck at an angle of approximately 135 ° to the axis.In length it will be a little less.The centerline of the head to the neckline swipe at an angle 70-80 ° to the neck line.Determine the position of the feet.In a galloping horse hind legs are at an angle of approximately 60 ° to the torso line, the front - at an obtuse angle of about 135 ° to 170 °.The length of the legs is approximately equal to body length.

Draw contours

torso horse is a long oval neck - Pull up the trapeze.Trapezoidal shape and has a head.Draw these geometric shapes, proportioning.Flatten the corners.Note that the upper and lower portions of the legs also have a trapezoidal shape, and average pieces - cylindrical plane which look just strips.Draw the contours of the feet, mark the boundaries of the hooves.Fully visible, one rear and one front leg.Draw the hip and shoulder.Thigh is arc-shaped convex portion which is directed forward.Leverage more acute, it is more angle than the arc.

mane and tail

Pririsuyte triangular ear.One of the most characteristic details of the horse - the mane.It consists of two parts - a small bang, growing between the ears and the forward direction and strands which, during jumps can be quite incredible form.They can draw arbitrary lines, but you must try to follow the direction of hair growth.With regard to the tail, it may hang or flutter.Draw its long curved lines.Draw the eye and nostril hairs.You can circle the horse and the most characteristic part of a soft pencil and colored pencil paint horse.In the same way a horse painted wax crayons, red chalk or charcoal.
