Step 1.

Begin by making two shapes, one for the head and the other for the body. Connect the two shapes with a neck line which should also be made in the position the neck will be in.

Description: These fantasy lessons for kids are really getting more fun everyday to create. I wanted to do something that was a little more exciting and a bit fantasy-ish. So here is "how to draw a kirin for kids", step by step. These fantastic looking beautiful horse looking creatures are one of my favorite mythology creatures from lore. They can look like anything you want, but should have the basic characteristics as far as creation goes. These horses have long manes that touch the ground, and their tails are long but not as bushy as a real horses tail. I actually made a lesson on drawing a kirin before a while back, but I like this version much better. Anyways, I think that all you fantasy myth lovers will fall for this lesson on drawing a kirin for kids because to me it's not only cute, its beautiful. I have to go right now but I shall return. Adios people and enjoy!
