Research Drawing Tutorial: Horse Hooves Drawing

RD-6 RD-5

From watching this tutorial, it made drawing hooves a lot more easier than I thought. In my opinion, I though the hooves would be include more circles to make the joint that supports the weight of the horse. In addition, the the perspective of the hooves helped me know how it looks from a side view and to a front view. My opinion, I feel like I could of done better with how a horses leg looks when it’s reattached. In the future, I do plan on improving the that when I try to draw a full horse.
