How to Draw a Horse Step by Step Experiment

Yesterday, while I was home fighting the flu with the kids, I noticed a job posting for an artist needed to draw a horse in successive steps that could be used as part of a tutorial. As a kid, I really enjoyed the "Draw 50" series of books along with several other how to draw books that my parents got for me throughout my younger years. As time went on, I slowly developed my own methods for mapping out and modeling my drawings, but I have never taken the time to photograph my drawing each step of the way. I thought this would be a fun experiment to try out yesterday. It is kind of interesting to see it broken up like this. Of course, this is a rough quick sketch, but it gets the point across. And so, here it is....As my kids would say as I make the grand unveiling: "DUNN-DA-DA DAHHHHHHHH!" And as my wife would, and did say..."Um, why did you draw his bum?"


* (I've just been corrected. She said "bottom". Not "bum"). My bad. Please don't infer that in anyway because of my misquotation that my sweetie could or ever would use such crass language. It's just not in her nature.

I LOVE YOU, JO! YOU ARE MY JO YOU KNOW!
