Horses are at their most beautiful when they are in full movement, and the chance to see them running, playing, and jumping is a glorious sight. To help make the most of this, we are going to learn how to draw your very own stunning jumping horse – let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by using a black pen to draw a “V” shape, angled to the bottom right of the page, and join the two sides with a jagged line.
Next, add two tall triangles to the top of this for ears.
Bring a line down, across and up, and then across and curving up – this is the face and mouth of your horse.
Add a small almond shape to the face, with a small dot to create an eye.
Now, bring a curved line across from behind the ear, heading to the left and curving down at the end. Repeat this with a similar shape at the bottom.
Next, bring a wavy, jagged line right across from the left ear, curving across to the left and down – this is your horse’s stunning, flowing mane.
At the end of the line, continue the mane back across to the right, until you meet the top curved line.
Continue to add texture and detail to the mane.
Next, bring a line across to the left, and then take it down to the bottom of the page.
Add a bumpy line, heading to the bottom left-hand corner, and end this with a short, vertical line. Bring another curved line up to the right, creating the back leg, and then add a hoof to the end of this.
Next, bring a curved line across from the back leg, and curve this across and up. Add another line to the right of this one.
Add another leg, complete with hoof, behind the first…
Now, add a “v” shape to the front of your horse’s body, and then add another “hook” behind this for one front leg…
And then repeat this for the second front leg.
Add a short vertical line to the end, and then connect this to the curved line of the stomach.
Now, add a large, dramatic tail emerging from the back of your horse – make this as jagged and textured as possible.
Fill the tail with a series of textures and patterns to make it really thick and splendid.
Now, use an orange pen to fill in these patterns in the tail, and a few in the mane.
Fill in the rest of the mane, tail, and hooves with a yellow pen…
And then use a brown pen for the main body of your horse.
Grab the black pen and draw the horse’s nostril to complete your drawing.
Now, that is a majestic site – a stunning horse, free and wild and jumping for the fun of it. What could be better?
