Equine Proportions by ElaineSeleneStock Equine Proportions by ElaineSeleneStock
This is just a diagram for general equine anatomy.


UPDATED:
I was surprised by how popular this got. So I updated it to make it more accurate.

I did trace the horse outline directly from/over a photograph of Nate. You shouldn't need any more proof of how accurate this proportioning system is then that.

This is incredibly useful.  If you don't mind, I'd like to use it in my Grade 8 class--with credit to you of course! :D

You saved me! I'm new to the whole not-tracing thing, and I'm drawing a show-entry that just looked completely wrong, until I tried to make a measurement with 'one head length' of the horse, and I realized the hindquarters was half the length it should be. You are an angel! :D

This has been sooooo useful to me! I did forget to cut it out here, BUT, your name is on it, and this will be deleted later (because it's a commission sketch) but I did want to show you (lol, if you wanna look, if not you can take my word for it) how much using this improved an original sketch (I usually use references, but as this is commission...) ANYWAYS.


THANK YOU SO MUCH! Invaluable resource!
