The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the front part of the gypsy vanner horse's body. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a bottle cap or any other object with a circular edge. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: To the left, draw another circle of similar size as a guide for the back of the gypsy vanner horse's body. Draw this circle the same way. Use four marks for the height and width. Then connect the marks with curved lines. Don't place the circles too far away, otherwise your horse will be too long.
Step 3: Draw another circle on the top, right side as a guide for the horse's head. Pay attention to the size of this circle. It should be about one- third the size of the first circle.
Step 4: Draw the guide for the muzzle by first making a small mark on the lower, right side of the head. Connect the small mark to the head using curved lines to form an arc. Pay attention to the size of this arc in relation to the gypsy vanner's head.
Step 5: On top of the head, draw a couple of lines that are similar to the letter M as guides for the gypsy vanner horse's ears.
