In this art tutorial I explain how to get the basic proportion of the horse’s head correct by using simple shapes and some basic measuring. Once the basic head is drawn and the proportion is correct, I then demonstrate how to develop the outline and sketch the details such as the ears, nose and eyes.
Once the details have been drawn I explain how to add the shading to make the head look more life-like. Finally, using a piece of graphite, I explain how to make the head stand out from the background to create a three dimensional look to the drawing. This art tutorial is aimed at beginners and those wishing to develop their drawing skills further.
