Horses are incredible no matter where you see them – relaxing in a field, leaping fences without effort, or running wild through the hills. When a horse stands on its hind legs, however, you are witnessing something truly amazing, and it is worth bringing this to life in a drawing. So, without further ado, let’s do just that!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a small, jagged shape just to the left of the center of your page.
At the right end of this, add a small triangle shape.
Now, bring a curved line down from the left of the triangle – this will be the ear – and continue the line down towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page. Add a “bump”, and bring the line across to the right.
Next, add a wavy line emerging from the bottom right of the ear, down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page.
Add a small almond shape to the face for an eye…
And then a black circle to the end of the nose, with a smaller mark just below this.
Bring a straight line down from the back of this line, and then flick this towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page.
Now, add a small, black circle to the edge of the eye…
And then add an “arrow” shape to the bottom of the curved line you just drew.
Add another line inside this “arrow”, and then join both lines together with a straight line. Add a small hoof to the end of this.
Add another small arrow shape to the top, to create the second front leg.
Now, add another line just below this one, and add a bump to the left of the first leg, and another just behind to create the hooves.
From the bottom of the leg, continue the curved line down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page…
And then extend the back line down in a wavy “c” shape.
Now, add another line to the left of this, heading towards the bottom of the page.
Continue these two lines down in parallel, and join them at the bottom with a hoof.
Add another leg just in front of the first, and add another hoof at the bottom…
Now, add a few curved lines across the stomach and the top of the neck.
Return to the ear at the top, and bring a jagged line across and down the length of the neck to create a majestic, flowing mane.
Repeat this at the bottom for a tail…
And then add a second ear to the left of the first.
Now, grab a black pen, and use this to fill in the hooves and the mane and tail.
Then, use a brown pen for the main body of the horse.
And just like that, you have your very own powerful, majestic horse, rearing up to the sky – is there a more spectacular sight?
