When working on horse pencil drawings such as the horse head series found here, adding more definite outlines and some details will continue to add life to your portrayal.
By now, you have finished blocking out basic shapes and have started an outline.
That way you'll know how we got through steps one through four.
You will now start step five.
You've worked hard. Now you can start adding more details and finalize the outline of your drawing.
(i) Use your pencil to darken and shape the curves at the side of the horse's face
This finalizes the shape of the horses's head.
(ii) Draw in the eyes
Since you already have the top eye line, just complete it by drawing another bottom line in the same manner.
(iii) Add lashes to define the eyes
Look at the picture above to see how they should lay.
(iv) Pencil the outline of the ears
The ears are almost triangle shaped, but as you can see the outside line of each ear drawing has more of a curved shape.
(v) Widen the bottom circle a little to shape the nose and then add nostrils
You can see the nostrils are made using another set of curved lines drawn as shown inside the widened circle.
(vi) Add a little bit of shading to the two vertical lines coming up from the nose.
This adds definition to the face.
(i) Darken the lines around the ears to define them
(ii) Pencil in the horse's neck
Make a diagonal line starting at the right ear and going downward at a fairly steep angle as shown above.
(iii) Add the forelock
Add short curved lines between the ears for the hair of the forelock. These lines do not have to be neat as they represent the lay of the horse's hair.
Once you finish that, your drawing is almost done. There are a couple more steps left. You can always review the prior step if you need to, or move on to finish the tutorial.
