How to Draw: Horse's Eye by Define-X How to Draw: Horse's Eye by Define-X
This was requested of me yesterday, so I hurried and drew one up. :) Keep in mind that this is just a basic, straight-on eye, and not every horse you draw will have their eye at this angle, with this lighting, ect. I hope this will help anyone who struggles in this area - if you have any questions, please do ask them! :thumbsup:
And, if you use this, please let me know - I just want to see your work. :D

This is a 4x6, drawn with an H and a 6B pencil. No particular reference was used.

:) I want to draw a horse on paper, but I really don't know where to find good stock. I would like a photo of only the head and the horse should be a thoroughbred of some kind like an arabian.
