Drawing a Horse: Step 1
Sketch the basic shapes in line.
THE LINE DRAWING: The first step in this drawing is to concentrate on rendering the basic shapes of the horse in line only. You are trying to discover the various relationships between the lines, shapes and proportions of the image.
TECHNIQUE: At the start of any drawing you should always sketch lightly and loosely as you search for the shapes and proportions of the image. It is very important to have a light touch when you are sketching as it is easier to erase your errors. Artists seldom get a drawing right first time. Therefore, it is normal to chop and change the position and proportions of lines and shapes at this stage of a drawing.
