Whether you are a seasoned equestrian, or simply admire the beauty and grace of horses, there is no denying the beauty of a mother frolicking in a field with her foal – this is a truly beautiful sight to behold.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black fineliner pen, and draw a small circle in the center of your page, around an inch from the top.
Use the fineliner to add a smaller dot inside this circle, and then fill in the space around this.
Now, add a small “crescent moon” shape above the top of the dot…
And a second circle beneath this, at the “seven o’clock” position. This will be the eye of your horse.
Next, add a wavy line below the circles you have created so far.
Bring a reversed “C” shape to the end of this, and then extend the top of the C upwards towards the top of the page.
Add a curve to this end section to create a nose, and then add a small dot inside the “C”, with a small semicircle above this.
Next, add a tall “flame” above the eye, with a short line dividing this in half down the middle.
Add a curved line to the right of this, and bring this down into a jagged line at the bottom.
Add a small triangle to the top of this to create a second ear…
Now, bring a line down from the first ear, heading towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page. Flick this up to form a “v”, then bring it back down and across in a jagged line.
At the end of this, bring a line back across to the left and back up, parallel with the first, to form a mane.
Now, bring a wavy line across to the left…
And another line down from below the chin.
At the bottom of this, add two parallel lines joined at the bottom with a straight line, and a slight “v” shape to the left, forming the front leg of your horse.
Now, add a small square hoof to the end of this leg…
And add another leg just in front of the first.
Add a hoof to the end of this second leg…
And then bring a line down from the back, bringing this in, back out, and down to form the back of a leg.
Bring a line up, then curve this across to the right and up, forming the hindquarter of the horse.
Add a hoof to this back leg…
And then connect the back and front legs with a curved line in the center.
Add another leg to the back, this time curving the line down towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page, then straight down.
Add a hoof to the final leg…
Now, add two curved, parallel lines emerging from the back of the horse, growing wider as you flick towards the left and join in a curve to create a flowing tail.
Next, add a small circle to the right of the horse, just below the nose. Once again, add a small dot and fill in the rest of the shape, leaving this white spot empty.
Add another crescent moon to the outside of this shape…
And then add a “c” shape to the left of this. At the top of the “c”, curve the line up towards the top right-hand corner of the page.
Now, bring a curved line down from the bottom of the “c”, curving across to the right, and then waving down towards the bottom of the page.
Add a small circle below the eye…
And then a small leg at the end of the bottom line.
Bring a line out from the front of the body at roughly a 45-degree angle and then bring it down towards the bottom of the page. Repeat this with a parallel line below, and connect both of these at the bottom with a straight line to create the front leg of the foal.
Add a hoof to the bottom of this…
And then add a wavy horizontal line to the top of the head, adding a pointed ear to the left.
Add some small “almond” shapes in front of the ear for the forelock…
And then bring two wavy lines down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page, joining in a point to create the mane.
Now add a curved line from the bottom back leg…
And add a back leg to the end of this, complete with curved hindquarters. On the outside of this, draw a curve to connect the back leg to the top of the back.
Add a hoof to the back leg…
And then add another leg just in front of this one.
Now, give your foal a tail emerging from the back…
And add a series of small dots all along the back and hindquarters of the foal.
Take a light brown pen, and fill in the mane and tail of the adult horse, as well as the nose of the baby horse.
Grab a pink pen, and fill in the cheeks of both horses, as well as the insides of the ears.
Now, use a darker brown pen to fill in the main body of both horses.
Next, apply the dark brown pen again on the larger horse’s body and head.
Finally, grab your darkest brown pen, and fill in the mane and tail of the baby, and the hooves of both horses.
And there we have it – a super cute mother and baby horse, just waiting for their next adventure!
