Draw the near front leg extended. Begin by drawing two curved lines, nearly parallel but curving inward as they meet the body. Connect the two lines at rounded points using a nearly straight line. Repeat this process to form the other three legs. On the back foreleg, be sure to include an extra pointed curve in the line nearest the tail, just before it joins the body.
Step 1: Start drawing Rainbow Dash with a circle on the top right part of the paper. It doesn’t need to be perfect. It’s just a basic shape for Rainbow Dash’s head.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony
Step 2: Inside the circle draw two intersecting lines, one horizontal and one vertical. The vertical line should be close to the right side of the circle, and the horizontal line should be close to the bottom. Draw the lines so they bend to the shape of the sphere. These are construction lines that will help you place Rainbow Dash’s facial features later on.
Step 3: On top of the horizontal construction line, draw two ovals as guides for Rainbow Dash’s eyes. The oval on the right side of the vertical construction line should be smaller because of the perspective.
Below the circle, draw an irregular bean shape. The line of this shape will curve upwards to meet the circle on each end. This will form the pony’s neck and body.
Step 4: Below the head, draw a bigger oval lying on its side. This will be a guide for Rainbow Dash’s torso.
Color Rainbow Dash. Remember the order of the colors of the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple.
Draw two curved lines from the upper right of the head, allowing them to meet in a point. Draw another curved line between these.
Draw two more ovals in the eye, one within the other. Shade the inner oval. Be sure to leave two small oval portions unshaded.
Draw a large oval for the eye. Extend three short lines from it to form eyelashes.
Draw Rainbow Dash’s pegasus wings. Starting from the rear portion of the mane, draw a curved line with three scallops. Around this form, draw another line with five scallops.
Draw the tail. The tail consists of a series of long and short curved lines meeting in jagged points – three sets of lines on each side of the tail. Allow one of the points to cross over into the body.
Draw a smaller lightning bolt within the first using five slightly curved lines. Extend five curved lines from the base of the tail to the tips.
Hasbro’s My Little Pony franchise has been popular with a variety of audiences – ranging from preschoolers to adults – since the release of its first toy line in 1981. The first My Little Pony television cartoon aired in 1986, and popularity has continued to increase since the 2010 release of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Sketch lightly at first, as you will need to erase some of your initial lines before you complete the drawing.

Draw the mane extending from the ear to the front of the face. Begin with a long curved line, then draw six shorter curved lines that meet in jagged points. Connect the mane to the bottom of the ear using a curved line.
Draw Rainbow Dash’s cutie mark. Begin by drawing a closed form consisting of four scallops. Draw a small, curved line within this form. Then, draw a lighting bolt extending from the cloud form. It should consist of six curved lines meeting in three jagged, zigzag points.
On the left side of the head, draw the snout and mouth. Begin by extending a curved line out from the circle. Draw another curved line downwards from the first, allowing them to meet in a rounded corner. Draw a short, curved line within the snout. Draw two curved lines to make a “V” shape back to the head. Finally, connect this point to the bottom of the circle using a curved line.
Step 5: Draw two curved lines that extend from below the head down to the top of the torso to create Rainbow Dash’s neck.
The ponies that reside in the magical land of Equestria are brightly colored. Each bears a symbol called a “cutie mark” on its flank. Rainbow Dash is a quirky Pegasus who enjoys aerial acrobatics and is known for her loyalty.
