Horse Tutorial by Droemar Horse Tutorial by Droemar
Just a quick tutorial I threw together while chatting with Starhorse and Wadhifitook. They cheered me up.
I draw these little guys incessently on my notebook margins. Horses leap over biology notes and gallop past art history dates. I really should start drawing something harder, like humans.
Form concept is my current eureka. I'm trying to use it more because form concept = stronger foundation drawings.
I also draw a lot of my horses with the Peruvian Paso or Andalusian body and mane, because I own a Peruvian. But I tried to keep my drawings more stock or grade body type, cause those are the kind you see most of the time.

I am in such a rut it's not funny. Plus I'm working on two comissions, so those will occupy my time for a bit. I hope this helps folks. Draw 100 of these things and post 'em. You'll get better. And I'll give you something.

So it doesn't pay the artist? What would be the point, then? I already have one outlet that doesn't pay where I've posted it for free.

This is an awesome material you've put together, im incredibly impressed, this really kill some bridges to the path of drawing fundamentals, with lots of practice you can pull perfect horses with this as a base. I salute you taking of my hat.

And I haven't even gotten in your gallery, this is a pretty amazing analysis counting that is aiming to draw horses in a realistic view and also could be aiming to just a simplified form. No enough words.... plus i'm lazy to write.
