Description: Wow, that ninja skull was wicked cool that AnArmA submitted today, great work! Ever since I uploaded my first simple lesson a few weeks ago, I have been getting requests to do more of them. So that is why I will be doing some simple based lessons today. To start, I will teach you an easy way to "draw a simple horse", step by step. As many of you know, drawing horses is quite a challenge, and because of that, you always have to be persistent when it comes to drawing a horse. I think the hardest part to draw is their heads. The easiest part of a horse to draw is their manes and tails. Other than that, they are pretty much complicated. It took me a very long time to draw these animals to a point where they looked half way decent. To this day, I still have problems drawing horses, even the cartoon versions. Now that I explained to you the difficulties of sketching out one of these fine animals, let me shut up, and "draw a simple horse", so that you can be on your way of drawing something awesome, adorable, and colorful! I shaded in my horse a nice gray, with a white mane and a white tail. I think the solid colored horses with different colored manes are simply beautiful looking. If you follow this tutorial correctly, you should end up with a sketch that looks great too. I hope you guys have fun drawing a simple horse. Remember, when you draw simple stuff, your chances of becoming a better artist increases, just because you are taking your time, and moving in at a step by step pace. There is no such thing as starting out good, and becoming great. I have to go, but as you know I will be back. When I return, I will have more lessons for you guys to enjoy. Peace out people!
