The Last Centaur painting by dashinvaine The Last Centaur painting by dashinvaine
The Last Centaur, oil on board, 80x78cm

A painting related to my poem 'The Balad of the Last Centaur.'

Phew, finally done! Went for a slightly Waterhousian style with this one (although I don't know if he did any Centaurs). Fairly pleased with it- less so with my crummy camera.

Can it be bought in a larger size than 16x16?

Print can be ordered at 20 x 20 inches. The original is also still available.

I was hoping to get a 30x30 or maybe a scale half size art print or something along those lines. I would love to have the original but I'm willing to bet it's a little out of my price range. It's a beautiful painting, I definitely intend to have it in some fashion

Hello. I'm not sure if you've been informed, but "monster erotica" author Christie Sims has used a flipped and cropped version of this in one of her novel covers on amazon -www.amazon.com/Centaur-Beast-M…

I'm not sure if you've authorised this or not, but I'd figured I'd let you know just in case.

 

Great work, by the way!

Yes, thanks, it is an example of art theft. Someone mentioned it and I'm trying to get something done about it.

check it out. I promise that I didn't see your piece before I made mine, actually I was inspired to do mine after I did The Courtship which is a mermaid and a centaur, and this was just the next natural step, I cannot believe how similar they are. I love yours, but here is mine and anyway I guess great minds think alike - I just wanted you to know I had not even seen yours [link]

I prefer the angle in yours, and you made a better job with the proportions, but they are indeed incredibly similar. Strange.
