Do not get upset if horses or chariot or solder are not perfect, when animals and men charge into battle things lose their shape since muscles are tense and action changes the perspective a little.

Start by drawing lightly at first so you can erase later.

Use a guideline to keep the wheel and horses hooves on the level with the ground.

Develop the composition with a stick figure to pose the solder and basic shapes to form the chariot and horses. Use basic shapes like rectangles, circles, and squares to design the horses.

 Keep things loose at this point.

Use a triangle for the chariot and circles for the wheel. (You can trace around a coin for a perfect circle.)

Draw around the stick figures to give them fullness. Rember the muscles in the arm. Don't try to draw the armor until after the body is right.

Give the horses curves on the body.

After you have developed the design add the details like armor, bridle, a lion's face on the chariot, and weapons.

Use a ruler for the straight lines.

Draw circles for the inside of the wheel and the hub. Draw guidelines all the way through the hub for the spokes so they are evenly spaced.

Keep the face and hands simple.

Add an environment, like a countryside, battle scene or arena.

Use shading technique to give the scene roundness. Put a shadow below the chariot and horses.
