Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a Clydesdale. We're going to start off with the head. So we're going to come down, do the snout, curve down to the mouth, draw a little line, then come down a little further and go back up. Go back up at the top of the head, curve down for the neck leading to the back. So we're going to draw the body first and then we'll add the feet and the legs. So there's the body. So for this leg here, it's going to come down and once you get down to where the hoof would be, they have long white hairs that spread, covering up the bottom of the foot, something like that. So we're going to do this for all of the legs. We'll go to the back, have this one bend out a little bit and then straight down and do the same thing, just put long hairs and you can draw in the legs behind and we'll shade these in and one in front over here. I'm going to shade this one in as well. We'll go back and erase some of these lines, like this one right here that we don't need anymore, this little one on the inside here. We'll go ahead and draw his tail. I'm just going to draw one curved line and I'm going to do that same thing over and over again, overlaying like that. We'll go back to the head and we'll add his ears, one behind and his hair, same thing, his overlay, leading down all the way down his neck and we'll stop once we reach the back. A few more things, do a little curve here for a nostril, then we'll add in an eye. Now just go back and clean up some of our lines like back here and then just add some shading in certain areas. And that's it. That is how you draw a Clydesdale. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
