Of all the animals to draw, I think horse-like ones rank near the top of the list as far as difficulty is concerned. With all those bends and curves in their head, neck and legs, it’s just plain tricky to get them to look right. Draw them too straight and they look kinda wimpy. Make them too curvy and they appear kind of strange.

And unless students have a real horse in front of them, or a good photo at least, there’s a good chance they will get stuck along the way. Not to worry though, I’m pretty sure that drawing anything horse-like (including unicorns) has vexed many an artist over the years.

The solution? A unicorn tutorial that focuses just on the head and mane. All the cute and colorful fun is still there, without any extra frustration.
