How to Draw an Anime Horse

Step 1.

Okay you will start this first step by drawing out all the shapes and guidelines that you see here which will form a frame for the anime horse. Start by drawing out the first circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw out the lines for the neck and then a bigger circle for the torso. Overlap the torso shape with a chest circle and a rear hip circle shape. From those shapes you will add the rest of the circle for the limbs as seen and then the shapes of the hooves.

Step 2.

In this step you will start sketching out the shapes and lines of her pretty eyes and then add the nostril holes as you see here. The next thing you will do is draw strand lines for her flowing mane and then start sketching out the shape of her anime horse legs as shown.

Step 3.

This is step three and for those of you that follow my steps you should know by now that the third step means you are half way done with your drawing lesson. You will continue to sketch out the shaping of the anime horses mane as shown and make sure that it is wavy and flowing. You will then start drawing out the shape of the horses back and then the tail lines. Once that is done you will draw out the rest of the shape of the legs and the hair that is flowing over the hooves.

Step 4.

Welcome to the last drawing step. What you will do now is start sketching out the detailing designs that is scattered on the anime horses body. Once that is done add definition to the hair and give this pretty pony some glossing eyes. You will detail her chest with some muscle definition and then detail the tail and hair over the hooves. You can then erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 5.

Once you are done this is what your drawing should come out looking like. All you have to do now is color this fancy looking anime horse in using your own coloring technique. You have just learned how to draw an anime horse step by step. I told you drawing anime animals is a fun thing to do!

In my second tutorial for the day I will be showing you all how to draw an anime horse step by step. Now I told you that I was going to submit one anime animal drawing tutorial everyday for a total of two weeks. Once my goal is accomplished I should have a total of close to fourteen anime animals under the animal’s category under anime/manga. I love drawing anime animals because I can make them look any way I want using any kind of colors to make my anime creations beautiful or fierce. You can do the same thing as well you know. All you have to do is first read the instructions and follow the detailed steps that I have laid out for you. Once your drawing is complete, that is when the fun starts because you get to experiment with colors, designs, shapes and graphics. For those of you that use Photoshop to do your coloring and drawing, you already know that your choice of colors and designs are practically limitless. For those of you that use the old fashion method of coloring and drawing using pencil and paper, that is the best because you can actually feel the paper and pencil in your hands. The best part about drawing on sketch paper is the vibration and sound from the tip of the pencil rubbing on the paper. That is how the most creative stuff comes out is when you can feel what you are drawing. In this drawing lesson you will learn how to draw an anime horse step by step. The instructions (like always) are easy to read and understand and the steps are simple to follow. I will be back in a while with more drawing fun for you all so stay tuned this is a fun and exciting day.
