How to draw a Horse Head

A drawing of a Horse Head, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

My new horse head tutorial offers lots of support to help students draw a head with a graceful 3/4 view and keep out a lot of the guesswork. If you use my suggested 16 box grid (you can either fold your paper to get them, or use page 3 of my PDF download) you’ll see that lots of the horse head lines fall right on some of the guidelines. If students pay close attention to them as they are drawing, they will really help get the size and shapes of all those curves in the right places.

Of all the animals there are to draw, I think horses fall into a unique category as being one of the most loved, AND one of the most tricky. Even if you just focus on the head, their chiseled profile calls for some special attention to get all the hard and soft shapes just right. After all, if you get them to align in the right way, you have a beautiful and graceful animal. But if a few are out of place, things just look a little, well … awkward.

How to Draw a Horse Head Materials
