Horse Tutorial by Droemar Horse Tutorial by Droemar
Just a quick tutorial I threw together while chatting with Starhorse and Wadhifitook. They cheered me up.
I draw these little guys incessently on my notebook margins. Horses leap over biology notes and gallop past art history dates. I really should start drawing something harder, like humans.
Form concept is my current eureka. I'm trying to use it more because form concept = stronger foundation drawings.
I also draw a lot of my horses with the Peruvian Paso or Andalusian body and mane, because I own a Peruvian. But I tried to keep my drawings more stock or grade body type, cause those are the kind you see most of the time.

I am in such a rut it's not funny. Plus I'm working on two comissions, so those will occupy my time for a bit. I hope this helps folks. Draw 100 of these things and post 'em. You'll get better. And I'll give you something.

Oh, this is good!  Boogie! SingingBoogie! 

With some practice my horses could look like horses, and not like dragons.
But it´s the sample principle...

Man, just if I could sketch so good, my drawings would come out better.. Oki, getting some paper to study this beautiful method of sketching! Horses are everywhere in my school notebooks.. One time my teacher had to e-mail my parents that I was "Making a distraction for myself and others" Oki teacher, this stuff helps meh. Learn teacher, learn. Lol! :)

Haha, I'm glad the tutorial helped! I used to get in trouble for drawing in class, too. But I really credit those little scribbles in the margins for driving me on to become a professional artist. I remember my geometry teacher caught me drawing in middle school and was like "Why are you doing this?"
"Because I don't want to do math for a living."
I got sent to the principal's office.
Keep drawing!

I think that's right. Little thin black book. It was a good little book. I'm a little surprised the drawing method isn't more popular.

So it doesn't pay the artist? What would be the point, then? I already have one outlet that doesn't pay where I've posted it for free.
