Drawing the Horse by Majnouna Drawing the Horse by Majnouna
IMPORTANT: This tutorial really really needs revising as there's a lot that's just not right with it. I'm not taking it down because I don't know how much time I need to redo it, but please take it with a grain of salt in the meanwhile.
The colors and patterns section has already been completed and now has its own (BIG) deviation:

I was wondering do Horse legs show in the back when in frontal view because I have seen horses with that

Great tutorial. My only issue is the lack of the (domestic) Mongolian horse.

Awesome tutorial! Just one ting I'd like to point out, the akhal-teke is not a Russian breed (though they are quite common in Russia, and a certain Russian general helped breeding the horse), it's from Turkmenistan.

Thanks for the correction, I found this out when I started researching more in-depth, and the revised tutorial will be much more accurate regarding the horse breeds.

Thanks for posting this info on the horse movement. A detailed tutorial on capturing horse gaits (if that's the right word?) would be great too! I find that harder than other animals. I think it's due to complexity of horse's lower leg & the fact that horses have different gaits

This guide has always been my go-to guide while learning to draw horses. Now I have a project I'm working on where I need to draw 5 different horses of different breeds, and this is more helpful than ever. Thank you so much!

As you can see, this tutorial's been altered because some sections are no good and the whole thing needs revising. For this reason I'd rather it not be published :)

I own a horse myself, and since I see him every day, I know how they look/ proportions almost inside out. I must say, this reference is very realistic and detailed and I could recognize quite a lot of similarities as well as interesting things I didn't know. Great job!! I always love your reference/ tutorials!
