How to Draw a Cartoon Horse - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Let's start with the head and snout of the horse! Draw a U-shaped semi-circle and add another small circle to the bottom of the s
Step 2: Above the semi-circle right in the center, add a large dot for the horse's eye.
Step 3: Time to add a little tuft of hair to our horse. Above the eye you just drew, add a dome of hair and keep the lines a bit jagged for texture.
Step 4: On both sides of the hair tuft, lets add the ears. Draw a small cone-shaped figure and add a line through the middle.
Step 5: Now for the mane! Off the bottom of the horse's head, draw a vertical line downward with a slight curve. Next, off the right-most ear, draw another vertical line with a bit more curve than the first. Move a bit off to the right once more and add in a zig-zag line to give the mane some hair and texture.
Step 6: At the base of the mane, draw a horizontal line that curves downward at the end. Moving over to the left-most vertical line, continue this line a bit further down.
Step 7: It's time for your horse's legs. We will start with the front legs. Begin where you just ended the curved vertical line and add three parallel vertical lines, each spaced evenly apart. Move over to the right and repeat the previous step. Note that the middle line of the parallel set should start a bit further up on the horse's body. Connect both groups of parallel lines by a curved horizonal line. Now, at the base of both the front and back legs, add a square-shaped hoove. Each set of lines should now contain two hooves.
Step 8: You are almost done! Off ther right at the end of the horse's body, add in two downward curved lines that connect at the bottom. Look at that tail!
