How to Draw a Zebra

Learn how to draw a zebra that looks pretty realistic, without getting lost in lots of stripes. Turns out that skinny triangles look even better.

Given that zebra bodies are shaped a lot like horse bodies, and good horse tutorials are hard to find, I made this new project in hopes that it helps students of all ages draw their best zebra possible.

The legs and head are pretty true to life, without having too many curves, and the angled stripes are more realistic, yet still manageable.

If you happen to prefer drawing horses, them just change the mane to one that flows a bit more, and then color in your favorite horse color. All kinds of possibilities.
