Draw a Centaur Day



What is Draw a Centaur Day?

Pretty much what is says on the tin: a day, once a year on April 16th, where you draw a centaur. That's all!

But why?

Why not?
Seriously, it's a very un-serious, commitment-light art challenge. Centaurs are awesome. They've got a crazy improbable anatomy that's open to a lot of interpretation, so it's an opportunity for artists to stretch their skills and have fun. I started Draw a Centaur Day on FA several years ago, and I'm proud to see how it's gained traction over time.

What if I can't draw?

Write a story, sculpt, sew, knit, do an interpretive dance, compose a rock ballad . . . as long as it's centaur related. The only rule is that it has to be your own creation - no screencaps or other forms of theft.

Do they have to be classic (human from crown to waist, joined to a horse where the neck should be) centaurs?

Nope! We've had everything from spider-taurs to turnip-taurs, and of course every year there's the usually a couple of reverse-centaurs.

Is fan art OK?

Yep, bring it on!

Is X-rated art OK?

As long as it's properly tagged.

Do you have centaur OCS?

Several, but you don't have to draw them to participate - this isn't a scam to get free art, except in the sense that I like centaur art in general.

I don't have time to draw on the 16th!

There's no penalty for being a bit late. Or a bit early.

Yep, bring it on!

Q:I s X-rated art OK?

As long as it's properly tagged and doesn't depict illegal acts. I do reserve the option not to repost.

Greetings! May I please join your group? I'm excited about the silly "centaur" art day coming up, and I'd like to participate. Are you currently accepting new members?

Thank you so much for your consideration.

The reason I'm asking this in the comment section is because I tried joining the group (via the "join our group" button), and there was no option to join as a "member," so it declined my request to join because it said that the group was not currently accepting new administrators:

I know that but it is denying me the matter saying that I am in the administrator area or at least that is what is allowing people to join as. :(
