Centaur by Rhavencroft Centaur by Rhavencroft
Doodle with some texture effects. Usually these creatures are civilized (at least in my fantasy realm) and clop about with at least a shirt on, but I was far too lazy to draw his shirt.


For the record, I am terrible at shading. :iconsulkplz:

The interesting part is that this centaur looks rather vile Yet, most centaurs are depicted as bold or civil beings. Nice new look on these creatures.

You have a pretty cool version of centaurs :)
They actually creep me out because they have two ribs.... D:

Thank you!
Hehe, I always thought that was one of the things that made them interesting. There aren't many other fantasy creatures that I know of who have two rib-cages. :XD: That and there is a variety of ways you can interpret a centaur. I was thinking of doodling a reptilian-themed one just for the fun of it.

Dang it, I put two rips and not rib cages :stare:
I really like mythical creatures like that, I also like manticores ad chimeras, they're so underrated <3

Although, I do wonder why humans are lazy. It's actually a rather big flaw, and makes some great people inable to use their maximum potential.

Thank you! I experimented a bit with it. I was aiming for a looser, flowing lineart. In a sense somewhat like :iconabigaillarson:'s artwork, although I doubt I will ever be as good as she.

He looks pretty agile. :3 Civilized or no, the ram horns look like they could do some damage if the situation were grim enough...

I think the second one has wrong perspective though; there should be less of it viewable from the side of his head because of the way his face is tilted. I'll get around to fixing it though, eventually hehe.

Lol thank you. xD I really need to get better at shading though. I'm not sure why it's so hard...

you should draw a picture specifically for shading, that might help for practice?

Oh I've done that before. I think what I really need though is a good shading tutorial to show me how to shade better, but unfortunately I have not seen many.
