The happiness of the earth lies on the back of horses

Many children love horses. They are very graceful yet powerful. If you love horses too, we have a great offer for you: draw your own horse! With our guide, you will surely succeed, even though horses are among the more difficult animals to draw. This is mainly due to their four long legs. Therefore, try to follow the drawing instructions exactly and estimate the positions of the individual shapes accurately. And if it doesn’t work out at first: brush it off. Even drawing professionals encounter this. Just try again. But now – grab your drawing pencils and find a cozy spot to draw.

Drawing a horse made easy

  • Draw three ovals. Pay special attention to the distances, otherwise your horse won’t look so nice later on.
  • Connect the larger ovals with lines. They form the body of the horse. The eye is located quite high, not in the middle as one might think.
  • Now draw the neck. You can also indicate the tail with a wavy line. It’s not so important to be very precise here. After all, a horse’s tail flies in one direction or the other.
  • Now the legs come into play. It’s important that they are thicker at the top than at the bottom. Make sure to connect the right circles with each other.
  • Finally, add hooves and a wild mane. The mane can be somewhat jagged, as the horse gallops after all.

Then you can redraw your horse cleanly with a black fineliner. Then you can decide whether you want to color the horse. You can use brown earth tones like us or create a colorful fantasy horse. If you paint the mane in rainbow colors and then draw a horn on the head, you’ll get a pretty unicorn.

Enchanting and totally on trend

Whether as a cuddly toy, keychain, or phone case – they always look great. Unicorns come in all sorts of colors and styles. But the main thing is that they’re cheerful, enchanting, and colorful! These fantastic creatures are therefore rightly popular for good reason. If you want to start your own creative unicorn project, we’ve gathered some inspiration for you on Pinterest. There, you’ll find many ideas for crafting, drawing, and coloring. But of course, here you’ll also find another drawing guide from “Learn to Draw”. Let’s get started!

Step by step to the unicorn

This cute unicorn is not difficult to draw at all. You start with two oval circles. One is for the head, the other will be the body. Then add the horn, as well as two circles that will become the feet. Next, draw an ear, two legs, and an “S” for the tail. In step 4, add a wild mane, where you can let your creativity run wild. With the eye, nose, and hind legs, it already looks like a unicorn. Complete your drawing in the next steps and finally outline everything neatly with a black fineliner. Your unicorn drawing is now ready to be colored and embellished.

Now it gets colorful

Since the unicorn is a fantasy creature, there are no right or wrong colors. Many like pink, purple, white, and rainbow colors, but really, anything goes. It definitely looks very pretty to emphasize the mane and tail with individual strokes. They will then look even more like hair. Also, take a look here, where we’ve shown how to color a picture with markers. It also looks cute if you paint the unicorn’s cheeks pink and highlight the nose with a slightly lighter or darker color. We colored it light purple.
