Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black fineliner pen, and draw two “n” shapes, angled at around 30 degrees, in the center of your page. Connect these at the bottom to create a horseshoe shape, and then add another “n” shape to the bottom.
Bring a short line across from the left side of the “n”, and then add a half-circle shape to the bottom of this. Next, add a short line to the bottom of this half-circle shape.
Add a series of small dots inside the half-circle shape – this will be the face of your knight’s helmet.
Add a small crescent moon shape to the right of this.
Now, add another half-circle shape to the bottom right.
Next, add a second, smaller shape inside this main one…
And then bring a curved line down to the left.
Add another small half circle shape to the bottom of this curved line, and then connect this to the top shape with two straight lines.
Add a small triangle to the inside of the bottom shape to create an elbow for your knight.
Now, add a small “C” shape to the left of this, and connect this to the elbow with two straight, parallel lines, creating a hand and an arm.
Draw a long, thin crescent moon shape emerging from the hand, to draw the sword…
And then add a long, thin rectangle to the center of the arm.
Now add the back of the body by drawing a “backward L” shape below the shoulder, connecting to the elbow.
Now, add another curved square shape to the bottom of this, and add a “frame” to the right edge and bottom.
Add a small crescent moon shape to the bottom right of this, and then a series of curved, horizontal lines across the bottom of this.
Add two diagonal, parallel lines to the bottom left corner, and then add the knee section below this.
Bring two parallel lines down to the bottom for a leg, and add an angled square to the bottom…
Now, add another shape to the end of the crescent moon shape – this should have a diamond shape on the left, a straight line at the bottom, and then angle this up and add a “bump” to the top.
Add a “frame” inside this…
Next, add a small triangle to the top of this to create your horse’s ear, and then add a small mark to the center of the face.
Add a wide, flat “W” shape to the bottom of the horse’s face.
And then use the black pen and a ruler to add a rectangle shape, with the corners cut off, just above the crescent moon shape.
Add lines to the bottom and sides of this, and then another long, thin rectangle just below the top.
Bring three lines down from the top right corner of this new shape, connecting this to the hand, and then add two curved lines below.
Add another angled rectangle shape to the right of this, and add another, smaller shape inside. Then, add an even smaller rectangle to the top.
Add two small triangles to the bottom of the crescent moon, and then a “7” shape to the right.
Add two square “n” shapes to the right of this, and connect the two halves together with straight, angled lines. Add another line just above the bottom.
Add the horse of the leg to the bottom, pointing towards the right of the page.
Add another leg behind this, with a “spiky” line at the back, and a hoof at the bottom.
Now, add a line to the back of the knight’s body, and bring it down, before curving it back across to the body – this will be the saddle.
Next, add two “V” lines to the back of this, and then add a diagonal line to the top of this, reaching to the saddle. Add a triangle to the top of this. This will be the blanket behind the saddle.
From the foot at the bottom, bring a diagonal line up toward the top of the page, and then take it down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page. Then, add a foot in front of this.
Bring a line down from the back of the saddle, taking it towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page, and then bring it in, down, and add a hoof to the bottom.
Add a triangle to the back of the top of the blanket, and then add a smaller triangle inside this larger one…
And then add a series of curved lines and points to the back to create a tail.
Next, use a ruler to add two parallel lines to the top of the knight, and just below the bottom of the horse’s belly. Connect these lines at the top and bottom.
Add a diamond shape to the top, creating a spear…
And then add two curved lines connecting the spear to the top of the horse, and the chest of the knight.
Grab an orange pen for the plume of the helmet, the edges of the armor, and the curve at the front.
Use a brown pen for the spear, the saddle, and the rein.
Use a black pen for the tail, and the space in front of the horse.
Next, use a blue pencil for the armor of the horse and the knight…
And then shade the rest of the horse with a red pen.
And there we have it – your very own stunning horse, and a handsome knight here to save the day – but where is the damsel, and who is she running from? The story is yours!
