How to draw HORSES + HORSE HEADS tutorial by STUDIOBLINKTWICE How to draw HORSES + HORSE HEADS tutorial by STUDIOBLINKTWICE
Today's tutorial was requested by Ryan Dunlavey on Twitter, who asked for a tutorial on HORSES. Since that's a pretty big subject, I'm splitting it up, dealing with the heads here, and the other bits of the horse in future episodes!

If you found today's tutorial useful, check out the links below for MORE TUTORIALS covering how to draw...
ROCK FORMATIONS
    ANGRY EXPRESSIONS      FABRIC     WATER     VEHICLES

And if YOU have a REQUEST for a tutorial subject, just let me know in the comments below :) (Smile)

I've added it to the list! Cheers!
In the meantime, there are tutes on hair, noses, ears, and Happy and angry expressions back in the gallery which may help a bit! Cheers!

What about bodies ? Thanks for all the tutorials and I hope you don’t mind me asking but the rock tutorial a have a question about. Do you generally break it down to shapes or just draw the lines?

All of your tutorials are great, spot on and fun to watch - thanks a lot for putting them online! Maybe this one will help me with my constant fear of drawing horses :) I love to see how you add the facial expressions to the animals!

TUTORIAL REQUEST: Could you do a "meta" tutorial that is just about the very basics of making your awesome lines? Are you using a nib pen that you dip into ink, or a brush in ink, or some particular kind of drawing pen like a Micron, or a combination, or what? And then do you do the shading on the computer? Even my awkward lack of terminology should show you how rudimentary my knowledge is. :) These tutorials are AMAZING, I LOVE your style, and I get all this energy to try to make these lines myself, but I don't know where to start. If you think that would be too basic for this series, and there is already some awesome tutorial on this you can link to, that would be splendid too. Thank you!

Hey Novui! Thanks so much for this request, I'm going to be doing some on techniques as well as on drawing subjects, and this is a great suggestion. I've added it to the list!

Thank you so much for the kind words on the tutorials, so glad they're firing you up to draw, even if you're feeling a little held back by your abilities. I would say, the important thing is to just start drawing with whatever you have to hand - pencil, ball point pen, it really doesn't matter. The ideas here can be applied to any style or medium, and you'll improve faster if you don't worry too much about the drawing tools, and just concentrate on the two tools that count: Your brain and your hand. The more they get used to drawing and thinking about how to express your ideas through the way you draw, the easier it will get to ape any style with any medium.

No, the sketchbooks are collections of designs, sketches, concepts, illustrations etc etc, whereas all these tutorials are new this year, and will be collected into their own book next year :)

Thanks for looking,  I have been drawing horses since I was tiny, but there is always room for improvement, I love horses but I can't ride any more (Due to an accident) so I draw them  instead.

Drawing is the best therapy, especially if you're unable to enjoy something that you used to. I'm sorry to hear about your accident, I hope your art has helped you through it, i know drawing has got me though lots of stuff by just letting me go somewhere else in my imagination :)

Horses are so difficult to draw. And I think it's even harder to "stylize" them. So, thank you for this nice tutorial !

I draw horses a lot more realistically than this, but this tutorial still had a lot of useful information! You can always learn from other styles, even if you choose not to replicate it exactly ;)
