At first we want to outline the horse’s head, then draw the long line of the backbone. On this line are placed the chest and pelvis. Next, draw the limbs of our horse. Pay attention to the bends of the limbs. Outline the rider’s head and spine, with the chest and pelvis. Also with the help of simple lines we draw the rider’s arms and feet.
Now let’s add some flesh to the driver image. Outline the shape of the body as shown in our example. Next, use the balls to outline shoulders and knees. With the help of cylinders, outlines our driver’s arms and legs.
Now let’s work with the horse. Let’s first outline the muzzle and the ears. Next, outline the neck, extending to the chest. Outline the horse’s long torso. Outline the front and hind legs. To learn more about horse shapes, visit the lesson on how to draw a horse.
Now, let’s sketch the main details on the body of the horse and the rider. First of all, we draw a helmet, the contour of the face and the contour of the rider’s outfit. Now move on to the horse and outline our horse’s eyes, nose, mouth and feathers. Next, outline the reins in the driver’s hand and saddle, drawing hair lines on the tail.
At this point we are finished drawing the figure of the horse-rider. Let’s start with the head and move down. Draw the outline of the helmet and facial features. Next, carefully draw the outlines of the rider’s clothing with clear and dark lines and delete all the unnecessary guide lines.
Now let’s work with the details of the horse’s body. Carefully draw all the necessary lines on the horse’s body, detail all the parts of the body and remove all unnecessary guide lines. If you think that the principles of horse body drawing are not described in full detail in this lesson, visit the lesson on the horse.
If you look at your drawing and understand that you’re happy with it, i.e. nothing needs to be edited, then it means it’s time to work with shadows. After defining the light source, we need to place shadows on those parts of our drawing where the light is not falling. It is more convenient to take the pencil in hand and start to hatch.
Today we showed you how to draw a horse rider. Pay attention to the horse’s posture, as it is quite complicated. Note that you can draw obstacles that the horse jumps over. We also recommend learning how to draw a horse in a variety of poses, to use a horse rider’s photo from the Internet. There’s another very important piece of advice we often give in our articles on drawing. You can check all the proportions of your drawing by simply putting it in the mirror, and then all the flaws and dishonesty in the drawing will be very noticeable.
