Before I get into some really cool lessons, I want to upload a tutorial that I have been waiting so long to do. Now, I know many of you artists love animals especially wolves, cats, and horses. Today, I will turn to my horse talents and upload this tutorial on "how to draw a stallion", step by step. I chose to draw a black stallion because that is my favoirte color horse, and because I loved the book “Black Beauty”. I was going for a real powerful look when I sketched out this horse, and I think I may have captured how beautiful these animals are. For a long time I have always thought that stallions where horses that are pure in only one color, for instance, black or white. I found out a long time ago that stallions are nothing more than male horses that have not been neutered. A gelding is a male horse that has been castrated which means geldings are less aggressive, less muscular, and less bold. Stallions on the other hand, have thick muscular frames. This is due to the fact that they have lots of testosterone running through their bodies. Now, remember the movie “Spirit”? Well he was a stallion, and he became the leader of pack. When a stallion is leader, all the mares (females), and foals will follow the herd leader. Did you know that once a foal becomes old enough, the stallion will drive the males out of the herd. This includes colts and fillies. What is a colt and what is a filly? Well, colts are young male horses, and fillies are young female horses. Stallions will sometimes drive fillies from the herd to prevent inbreeding. Pretty smart huh? Anyway, if you are a big horse lover you should enjoy this tutorial on "how to draw a stallion", step by step. You can choose to color him in any shade you like, I just personally like black. I will be back with another horse tutorial, and this time I think you will find that it is more helpful than this one. Peace peeps!
