How to draw a running horse

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Draw two ovals for the head and body of the running horse. Draw a line, which will act as the center of its head.

Step 2

Draw shapes for the animal’s body and neck. Add a smooth guideline for its tail.

Step 3

Use guidelines to define places for the legs, mouth and ears of the running horse.

Step 4

Sketch the legs, hoofs, ears and nose of the horse.

Step 5

Draw the eye, tail and mane of the running horse. Detail the shapes of its ears and joints.

Step 6

Add the nostril. Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 7

Contour the running horse, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the ground. Erase all guidelines.
