This is probably the only piece of work I made for myself in Italy that I actually FINISHED. Generally I never had time to do something like this. Random centaur, and I want her glove/bracers. The scanner washed it out a bit, but I really liked using watercolor to get the dappled effect.
I drew this awhile back. My second favorite fantasy creature is the centaur. I drew her as a strawberry roan! i think they're neat... I'm not great with horse anatomies, at ALL, haha, but i thought i'd give it a shot anyways. I know the arms are kind of long... oh well! enjoy :3
Gift for a friend I know at school for her Birthday. Beware the Ides of March! X3
This is her character Loki, that mythical magical prankster who likes to stick twinkies in your shoes and impersonate cops to give you a hard time :3 He can also shapeshift, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him in centaur form. I'm quite pleased with this picture, I tried a new style of shading, yet again, and I think I'll stick with this one because it gives me more control over the shadows and colors. It's more similar to the styles people use in Painter, where I pick out my colors for shadows and highlights and use those rather than relying on the multiply and screen brush modes. Fun times!
UPDATE in 03-02-2007: As I'm a target to art thiefs, I'm changing the file for one with a smaller size and a larger watermark.
Doing this, I know visitors can't see the details, but is to try to prevent problems.
Right. Some of you may remember this image when I had it on my elfwood gallery. I've never been really happy with it. Soooooooo, I'm turning it into one of my travelogue creatures. He'll be in the deep forest, dark... with beams of light just making it through the trees. either that or I'll go insane and stick him on a cliff or something. I dunno. We'll see. Got another one I"m doing too... wonder which one I'll do first?
as always finished images go on :iconmistressofspam
