If you want to know about a horse pencil drawing or how to draw a horse, YOU've come to the right place.

Here, I'm gonna share with you, how YOU can draw a horse with graphite pencil in an easy step-by-step from simple outline sketches to a realistic pencil drawing.

Let's start...

Step No. 1

Relax... Take a deep breath... Clear your mind... Take a piece of paper (preferably a cheap photocopy paper) and a drawing pencil set. (Do you know what is a drawing pencil set? Click here)

Select a nice place to sit. Make a cup of coffee or hot chocolate if you want.


Step No. 2
Select your favorite still life drawing picture to have your pencil drawing of a horse. With that you can start a still life sketches and produce your own horse pencil drawing. Got one? Let's go to the next step...


Step No. 3

A horse

Here I choose to draw a still life horse from a still life picture. I display the picture of the horse that I chose so you are aware that I personally drew this horse.

Then, this is a step by step drawing lesson to have your own pencil drawing of a horse...


Step No. 4

Take a HB or B grade graphite pencil. Use it to draw sketches. Start by sketching two circles; one is bigger then the other. Joint the circles with a single line. And add simple line sketches to represent head, neck and feet like this...

Here's the magic part... Look at your still life horse picture subject and compare it with your sketch.

Ask these 2 important questions:-

1. Does it has a correct size to be on your paper?
2. Does it has a correct angle based on your position?

If the answer is NOT to any of these questions...Erase it, and re-sketch your drawing according to the correct size and angle.

Once you get that, then you can continue your next bit of sketching...


Step No. 5

Sketches simple outlines from head to tail. Erase unwanted line sketches.

Start to create tones in your horse pencil drawing. Make your pencil drawing of a horse a realistic one!

Take note that you are drawing in a black and white pencil sketch. There will be no other color... yet you are drawing a 3D subject! So, you have to differentiate the tones to represent a 3D perspective.

You can start with any of the two pencils. I suggest you use a 2B pencil first to create fine stroke from the center to the outer part of your horse pencil drawing. Follow the contour curves of the surface to produce a depth effect.

Then, use a 4B pencil for darker tones especially the 'deeper' part (in a 3D perspective) of your subject.



And finally...
