Day 60 #100horsesbyroxanne

Day 58 was all about the front legs, so today I wanted to look at the back legs to get used to interpreting them into simple stick figures. 

What may look like a bunch of rather dull and repetitive line drawings are in fact the most helpful exercises I've done in helping me to understand basic anatomy of the horse. My aim is to continue applying this method to my work, especially when drawing from life. It will help me to establish the main position and proportion of the horse before going any further and worrying about detail.
