How To Draw A Winged Fantasy Pony

A winged Horse drawing walk through is planned but I thought a how to draw a winged Pony could be equally interesting as a Pony is a Horse just a smaller looking Horse. Here we will draw a fantasy Pony with wings just like Pegasus from the Greek legend, although as you'll see a Pony looks way shorter than an actual Horse so that's what sets it apart from larger Horses.

To draw a Pony you may need reference photos as per usual when drawing something you aren't used to drawing and once you have them you can begin by practicing to get the structure of the Pony right a few times before you commit to a final drawing effort. The beginning of a drawing is always the difficult task as it can either go well or not so well which may need you to start again or erase the mistakes along the way.

Lets have a look at making a start at drawing the Pony head

Step 1 Head Shape

A rough shape will do for the head so you can see the jaw and characteristic shapes of a Ponies head.

Step 6 Draw An Eye And Small Details

Step 9 Bottom Leg Drawn

The bottom leg is drawn and shows the Pony figure standing on it's back legs so that when you come to draw in the wings they'll look more effective.

Step 17 Refine Those Important Head Structure Lines
