how to draw a horse face

In this tutorial, we will be learning how to draw a horse face. We will start with a basic outline of the head and then add the details.

Tools Needed:

  • 2B Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Graphite Pencil(optional)

The best way to make this drawing look natural is with a tablet. There are many options for cheaper tablets, but if you don’t have one I highly recommend getting yourself an one because it will give your drawings that extra something special that makes them stand out from others!

Step 1:

First, start by drawing a large irregular oval shape for the head. This will be the base for the rest of the drawing.

Step 2:

Draw the nose. Just two half ovals on each side.

Step 3:

Now we draw the nostrils. Just a simple oval on each side. Don’t complete the full oval, leave a gap within it.

Step 4:

Now we draw the eye sockets. These sort of look like a checkmark on their side.

Step 5:

Now we draw the eyes. Start with the pupil. This should be a small circle within the eye socket.

Step 6:

Draw a leafy shape on each side of the head for the ears.

Step 7:

Draw a line in each ear for the inside of the ear.

Step 8:

Erase all the rough lines

Step 9:

Add more detail to the face and add the body.

Step 10:

Crosshatch in areas where there will be shading. Define more of the lineart by stroking over it with varying widths.

And that’s it! you’ve drawn a horse! Now all we need is to give him Equimax Wormer to stay healthy(I’m joking).
