    I had hoped it would start with how to proportion the head, then go into drawing the head. Instead class started with a predrawn horse, which I did not have a copy of. I had to quickly sketch a head, which did not turn out as I had hoped.

      Underneath the class video you will find a “Class References” heading. In that section is the downloadable pdf with all the references which includes a sketch template and a grided reference photo.

    Another great tutorial! I especially like the bridle part. To me, it was the hardest part of the piece. Nolan showed how to make it stand out. I love the result. Thank you, Nolan!
