Let's start drawing the head of a zebra from simple forms, very light lines designate the head, a muzzle, ears, eyes, then a neck and a mane.
Walk an eraser on lines that they became light. Make fluffy ears and a mane from above of the head.
Draw a contour of the head of a zebra and an eye. Eyes have to lie at one level and to be approximately identical.
Let's remember a structure of eyes.
1 — an upper eyelid,
2 — a patch of light,
3 — a pupil,
4 — an eye iris of the eye,
5 — a white of the eye,
6 — the third eyelid,
7 — a lower eyelid.
Draw eyes at a zebra.
We draw strips on the head and a body, we trace a muzzle, nostrils and a mouth at a zebra.
Clarify contours an eraser, a pencil 2H we plan black strips. Always enclose a paper slice under a hand, it will protect you from spreading of that you already drew, and will prevent hit of skin fat on paper.
Using pencils of different softness from 2B to 4B, draw strokes to create black strips on the head of a zebra. The source at us is with the left top corner therefore the right side will be more dark. Guide a head contour on the right, notice that on the right where the contour is light small sites which flow in the very dark.
Now small lines we imitate wool, where white sites pencils from 2H to 2B.
Draw a small black site of a mane between ears, then add stripes which smoothly pass into a mane and become part to it. Notice that a mane hair, the closer, the are lighter. At the left hair are lighter, than on the right because of a light source.
Using pencils of different softness draw eyes, the patch of light is much brighter at the left, a patch of light on the right.
On a muzzle hairs very short, also turn attention where there are clarified (light) sites, do not forget about them.
Let's pass to a portrayal of ears, to draw strands of wood with patches of light a pencil 2H, and to darken internal part of an ear a soft dark pencil (6B).
Draw hairs on a mane, observe the direction and a tonality.
Draw dark strips of wool on a body at a zebra. Pay attention that strips on a body proceed on a mane. Shading goes in such a way that the most dark area turns out near a muzzle, there where we have a shadow, and then shading becomes lighter and is lighter to a total disappearance. Then look at drawing and correct that it not to be pleasant to you. I worked over a muzzle a little and fixed nostrils, having added contrast.
And, finally, when you draw sketches of animals, you gradually receive skill of fast drawing, study removes lines exact and be more observant. Animals there is in one situation about couple of seconds but if you stock up with patience and will often practice, for you it will become easy to seize any interesting opportunity and to depict him on paper. With you there was Brenda Hoddinott, successful all of drawing!
