Drawing: Hayley the Horse
Welcome! For this project, I will explain how to draw Hayley the Horse. This drawing was created in the art app, ProCreate, but can be made in Photoshop as well.
The first step is to sketch out the character. I used the technical pencil in ProCreate and made it wide. I also used red and blue as the main sketch colors so that they are easier to see when I ink the image.
Next, trace along the guidelines with an ink tool. I used the studio pen in Procreate. It is better to bring down the opacity of the sketch when inking it on the next layer.
Now to add the colors. I simply dropped down the colors in ProCreate but I would have used the bucket tool in Photoshop.
Now to add her spots! I used the speckle tool in ProCreate but there are various tools you may use.
Now I shade her. I used the magic wand to keep my spray paint within the lines. I used a very light opacity spray paint tool to shade all of the body.
Next, take a step back and copy the ink layer. Add horizontal lines along her shirt and then bring the layer opacity down.
Do the last step except with vertical lines.
When both layers are visible, the image should look like this. I fixed the opacities if it was necessary.
Now add it all together! And I got this finished product.
