Lesson in Horse Anatomy

Observation and understanding of the key underlying muscle, nerve and bone tissue can prove extremely useful when drawing horses. These structures easily show through the relatively thin skin and velvety short fur of these animals and the appearance will vary depending on the breed, age and stance of the horse. In this step, I continued building up color in the horse's neck and  began defining the major muscle groups that are so distinctive of equines.  You can also see the beginnings of the  highlights of the glossy sheen on the coat.
