How to draw a zebra tutorial

let`s learn how to draw a zebra.

I’m sure that you do not need to explain who this zebra is. Anyone from child knows about amusing black-and-white striped horses living in Africa. Another thing is that in fact they are not very funny, they are so wild that they do not give in to domestication (respect!) And people destroy the natural habitats of zebras the way they can. But let’s not talk about sad things. We will talk about how to draw a zebra. In the world there are several types of zebras, they differ mainly in the structure and color of the strips, but we will not go into these taxonomic subtleties.

So we got to drawing the feet – one is the supporting one, the second leg is laid back. The tail of the zebras is not the same model as the horses (bushy broom), but rather like a broom with a handle.

Now we need to properly distribute the strips on the body and at the same time we still have to take into account that the figure is not flat and the stripes are bent in accordance with the roundness of the sides and legs.
