How to Draw a Pegasus Pony:
Why hello there! :) Today, as you have hopefully seen in the title, I will be teaching you how to draw a pegasus. This was requested by Rafen40k. I am sorry if my directions are hard to understand. Just take a look at the pictures below for step by step instructions. If you pegasus doesn’t come out the way you want thats ok. It takes time to learn how to draw. Also yes there is a picture of AJ in the background in the photos. She is there because I am trying to reuse paper and not waste it. I had drawn her earlier but anyways... and yeah! The pictures are backwards so if you would rather use them instead of the instructions, thats fine too. I am using a webcam. Know that you know that... lets get started. ;D
1.) Start off with drawing a circle about the size of a small shell you would find at the beach. Draw it lightly and not to hard. You will go over the outside again later. (I am going to draw it darker only because I want you to see it. ;D
2.) Start at the top of the circle and make your way around moving towards the left. You might want to look at the picture for this one. Its kind of hard to explain.
3.) From the point where you stopped, draw a line straight out, to the right, only about the size of a dime.
4.) Draw a line down from there. This will be how tall your pegasus will be. You want a tall pegasus pony? Go right ahead! You want to make a filly? Sure! For me I’m just gonna draw a normal sized one. You can do whatever suits you fine though.
5.) Draw a line to the left about the width of a piece of Hershey’s chocolate. Then draw a line up till you reach a little higher than the belly but not too high. You might want to look at the picture...
6.) Go back to the other line on top of the circle you drew earlier. Use that line to draw its back. The size will vary depending on how tall or short your pegasus is. (Look at picture if you need help. )
7.) Now draw the stomach. It should reach across almost the width of the back but not so much that you can’t draw the front legs.
8.) Now we are going to draw the front legs. As you can see the front legs are different from the back ones. To do then all you do is draw two parallel lines, about the same size and the back hoof, down to the bottom. Make sure they line up with the back legs. Then draw a line connecting them.
9.) Now for the head and front part of the pony. Start off by drawing a curved line from a little bit below the second line of the front hoof. Just look at the picture because its really hard to explain.
10.) Then draw a curved line a little bit inward from the other line... Ok I don’t know how to explain it so Just look at the pictures untill you get to step 14.
14.) Ok so now you have to outline of a pony. We need to make it a pegasus. Well first you need to decide what wings you want. There are three types that I know how to draw. (See picture) Choose one. If you choose option 1, keep reading. If you choose #1, skip to step 20. If you choose #3, skip to step 26.
15.) Lets Turn this pony into a pegasus! xD First draw a line from the far left side of the back to almost the top of her head.
16.) Make a loop.
17.) Make another loop, this one smaller than the other one and a little shorter.
18.) Make two more loops. till you reach the bottom.
19.) Draw 3 smaller loops inside those loops. Now you have wings! :) (If any of this confused you, just look at the pictures. I am not very good at explaining things... ) Please skip to step 29.
20.) You have chosen... Wing number... 2! ;D Ok lets get started. First do the same thing as step 15. Make a line but a little bit taller since these will be bigger wings than the other ones.
21.) Draw a line across from that line about the same length as the ponies back.
22.) Start to make Feathers. (look at picture for reference.)
23.) Casually make them smaller untill it looks like this. (Look at picture.)
24.) Repeat steps 20-23 but make it smaller and inside the wing.
25.) Now you have a Pegasus! ;D You can now skip to step 29.
26.) Congrats! You have chosen wing Number 3! ;D Lets get started first make a U shape across the ponys back. It should look something like this. (Look at picture please)
27.) Then Draw 3 loops kind of like you did with the other wings but smaller.
28.) Then draw 2 lines across the hoops so it touches the bottom of the U.
29.) Go over the lines so they are darker and that way you can see them better
30.) So there you have it! The outline of a Pegasus. I made mine Rainbow Dash just cause I felt like it. You can make yours whoever you want. I hope you had fun doing this and I might make some more of these articles if people enjoy this. If you want post your pictures so I can see if my instructions actually worked that would be helpful. And also, sorry if it is really long. U have a lot of photos and instructions so yeah... And BTW this took me like an hour, not just writing it but taking all the photos too. So I hope you like it. :)
