Step 1:

Start by sketching four different shapes and overlap them like in sample 1.


Step 2:

Now we need to draw in a guide for where the legs will go.* Sample 2* (below) shows how we can achieve this by using some more shapes.



Step 3:

Now that we have our basic guide sketched down we now need to draw in the actual outline of the horse.* (see below)


Step 4:

Once the actual outline of the horse is sketched in you will now need to start going around it again but with a darker tone and remove any unwanted lines.


Step 5:

Now that we have a clean image to work with we can now begin to add some shading.


Step 6:



See how a little shading can bring it to life.
