Okay, well for my last lesson I will be doing something based on a tribal animal. This is probably one of my favorite pieces of tribal art that I have drawn thus far, but that's just me. We will be learning "how to draw a tribal horse", step by step. I do have a tribal lesson based on a horse head, but that's it, it's just the head of a horse in tribal form. I know that horses and other types of equine are loved by millions of people. I love horses myself, which is why I really enjoy drawing them out in all different styles, poses, and sizes. This tribal horse has a real nice shaped body from the side. The legs, tail, and frame is thick and realistic while keeping it simple as a tribal design. If I was interested in getting a tribal tattoo in the form of a horse, this would definitely be my first choice without a doubt and I'm not just saying that because I drew it. Anyways, that's all I can really say. I do hope you enjoy drawing a tribal horse of your own. Like always you can tweak the design any way you want, its' all up to you. I shall return later with another submission so try and stay tuned in. Peace out and giddy up!

Next, start forming the rest of the horse's side profile using the muzzle you just drew in step two. Slowly draw the shape of the neck, then sketch out the tribal style mane as it flows beautifully. Add the ear then you're done.

Close off the neck by making a very solid tribal design. Finish drawing out the leg you worked on in step four, then draw out the other front leg and hoof. Add the lining accordingly.

You are almost done with your tribal horse. All you have to do here is draw out the form of the horse's back, then draw in the nicely curved back end as well as the hind quarters or leg. Draw a nice tribal pattern for the stomach, then add nice lining to the leg and hoof.

STEP 8.

Almost done folks, keep going. You will work on the horse's tail. I went with a high arched base to get that action pose, and I also wanted a long beautiful tail to go with the character design of the tribal horse.
