I'd like a few horses to practice drawing.

So, I've begun to try to draw horses. I'm not very good at all, but practice makes perfect, right? I'd really like to have some pictures to practice drawing instead of just making up the horses as I go. I would really appreciate it if you posted pictures on this thread. I will try to do a full body drawing, but I might just draw your horse's head. Sorry! Attached are some pictures of my drawings. Sorry for the quality, and one of them is folded because I drew I person that was too awful to post online. Anyway, here they are.

How about something a little bit complicated? Sure, it'll frustrate the hell out of you but what it will do is teach you attention to detail. ;D

Meet Lightning, a mutt horse who's not only severely unlucky (he got the colic this summer, and then choked less then a week later), but the King of Quirky.

Okay so I drew Lightning. The drawing is horrible and I will probably do another one later. The proportions are way off and the picture makes it look worse but I'm going to post it. Anyway...

And here is the other one. It's a bit better, but not great. I'm not sure why, but the picture also makes the ears too small.

Are you holding the pictures up?

When I take pictures of my drawings I use the macro setting on the camera (this is the symbol), lay the paper FLAT (on a table or something) near a light source (mine is usually as directly under the overhead lights; which are weak). I used to set a lamp about 1 foot away from the drawing.

Then I take the picture and use a program such as paint or Photoshop to make it a little bit (at least 40%) smaller, which also helps make it more clear.

Oh, okay I'll try that.

Okay so I did Lightning again. It came out a little better but still bad. I also tried what Creampuff suggested with the pictures. Yeah, it looks nothing like Lightning. I still need practice.

Don't get discouraged! Here's one of my horse drawings from 2009, and below it is now. Persevere, Paint, and you'll make progress in heaps and piles. (: All of the artists here are very polite and more than willing to help out, too. Feel free to contact me if you ever need anything! :3


I remember this, too. I drew it in the waiting room while I was pregnant with my son.

And this is Creampuff, taken from the tutorial I'm working on.


Study and reference is going to be your best friend, believe me. (: As boring as it sounds, study works. I watched videos, took pictures, drew and drew more, and watched slow-motion videos. It won't be perfect on day 1 or 3, but it can take a matter of months if you work hard enough. You're already making improvement that I can see and I applaud you!
