A centaur in disguise by Manweri A centaur in disguise by Manweri
Centaurs are not well thought of amongst the human population, but it does not stop them from entering human territories anyway. Where else are they supposed to get all the good merchandise?

I hope you are able to see that the rider is not an ordinary rider. My brother wasn't able to see what it really was at first (even when I said the word "centaur"), which made me die a little bit inside...

EDIT: Whoah, I don't know why this old drawing of mine suddenly ended up on the front page, but it sure is a nice surprise! :) I usually reply to every comment personally, but I'm afraid I don't quite have the time for that now, so I'll just thank you all here, and tell you that I really appreciate all the kind words. I'm very glad so many of you find this silly drawing entertaining :)

I saw this on Tumblr and my first thought was that it was from the 17-1800s.  This is great!

It's probably been said before, but this drawing became somewhat viral in a few D&D/Fantasy communities online. It's brilliant.

I love this drawing-- it's rendered beautifully, and the concept made me laugh. Someone had linked it on Tumblr initially, but I decided I'd rather fave from the source.

Good thing this particular centaur specimen has a very human upper body, some appear more feral.

I was able to figure it out. A big clue is how far up the "horse" the rider is

Love this idea! At first I thought - ah, elf has never ridden and is trying to blend in unsuccessfully - then looked closer and realised it was a centaur! Brilliant! Pixel gemstones - Diamond

It's so brave and brazen of him to wear a disguise in this town in the first place. I really like this topic about centaurs being able to wear disguises; Do you know any other authors with pictures like that?

THIS IS AMAZING~! XD

My partner came across it somehow on the vastness of online, and just traced it back now. 83 YOU. ARE A GENIUS!! XD (Took me a short moment, but I got it in the end! and just played the game of showing all my housemates one by one to see if they could work it out X3 only 3/6 thus far have ;D haha!)

LOVE the concept and such great skill you have! thanks so much for sharing~!

I couldn't tell at first at all, saw this shared on facebook (with the link to this of course) and I had to click to here and enlarge it to tell.
But that's a good thing! Since it's meant to be a disguise afterall.

This made me laugh so hard. XD I saw a cool shaded horse and rider in the thumb and clicked on it for the awesome shading. I took in just a horse and rider, and the horse having a weird head? and then I scrolled down to see the title, read it was about a centaur then scrolled back up to look for it. It was only THEN I noticed the "rider" was sitting waaaay too far forward, the horse's head was not realistic at all but so cleverly and wonderfully done up. xD THEN I realized how the centaur managed to make such a contraption and laughed so hard. It's totally realistic his posture and horse body if you can mentally take away the fake legs and horse's head. xD I love the expressions of the man with his big horse and how they're both staring. I notice the centaur is like "don't look at meeeeeee <.< >.>;; Just a rider coming through that's all folks" which is just so freakin' awesome. xD And the detail of the background is INCREDIBLE and realistic and AMAZING. I love it!! Excellently done! <3

I love horse's. I work with them. You have drawn them beautifully and you have got the horse's gait right. Many people incorrectly draw the different gaits and paces of horse's
