Need a break from all things "japanese" today, so I started sketching a centaur in armor... that was going the normal route when looking through an art history book, I came across this really neat baroque style armor on a painting of St. Helena. And I realized my centaur's human half should be more feminine, so I doodled this in photoshop for about 5 minutes... whaddya think?

And so with a bit more research on horse anatomy, this will be my next self inflicted project. I'm looking forward to doing the folds and the possible patterns, as that was a real challenge the last time out. I'm also going to upload this one to Art-Agent, so it's going to be a mondo file!

Thanks for peeking.

Charming, Bobby, although I'm not sure I'd wear dangly earrings and puffed sleeves to joust with! :D

LOL @ rosequeen. good point! i also think that if i was a powerful centaur with a sharp pointy sword the last thing i'd do was to let somebody put a frickin' saddle on my back!

i can't wait to see this piece! i bet it'll be spectacular!!!!

Okay giving this another try, and I've been doing alot of research... it seems everyone and their mother has done a female centaur in armor. So I am trying to stay inspired to finish this... Anyway here's another sketch, this time with a new "dragoon" hat, and a few more changes...

What do you think? Go ahead, try something else, or move on...

if you really wanted to shake it up, an african queen with the body of a lion "centaur" might be really cool...

or it could be a scary witch centaur on a horse with bat wings...

not that i think there's anything wrong with this direction. just tossing some stuff out there. :)

Those are both interesting ideas... actually I did try that once for BlackTgr, a member here... never did finish that one... shusssh she might hear you...

Here's another update on this piece, also asked a horse expert member to help me with the legs, waiting on that sketch to study...

This has been bugging me, shouldn't the waist be even with the horse part of the body? The size of the human part seems a small in relation to the horse part, other than that I find this image fasinating and well done.
