Faenum tribe

Yes, so another one just to showcase more of the basic look of the faenum tribe in :iconbeyondtheplains: again counting as medium build, the horse body based off a haflinger with the typical chestnut coat color with flaxen hair and white markings. I was trying out whether to use the typical horse markings also for the human part of the centaur, the white on her arms more as a mutation of her human skin, as well as the white blase on her nose and chin...kinda like the idea and think it could provide a more versatile way of customizing the centaurs for the different tribes, no/yes? 

anyways, we will be updating more focused documents on what´s more common in the different tribes and so on, but basically the Faenums are very much like Mongolians, they are Bedouins, travelling light and using little to no armor and clothing, and if they do leather and animal fur along with sturdier fabric is the way to go. Bow and arrow as most common weapon, their camps are easy to take down and put up. Braids, beads and colored strings are put into the hair for ceremonial reasons as well as ways to show connection to certain tribe members and family. Common colors are chestnut, all from pale yellow down to a deep reddish hue, and close to all of them have flaxen hair bleached even brighter by the scolding sun.

thank you, with centaurs the balance between horse body and human torso can be tricky for sure:/

Very nice proportions, beautiful palette, good integration with the background.  I quite like your innovative ideas on her clothing, and it all combines to a Favorite.  Thank you for sharing this lovely image.

thank you so much! wouldn´t go as far as saying the clothing was innovative, since it was the most basic top i found googleing female clothes, but so happy you like it!!

I've never seen the like on a centauress before, though, and I would think it would give her upper body more flexibility with the 'bend' of her lower body.  If you do ever want more ideas on centaurs, my 'Favorites' gallery contains work besides yours that I find superior--and I have very discriminating tastes.  I love stories and art of the horse-folk and have for long years.
