Shizuma and Nagisa as centaurs by SoihtuSS Shizuma and Nagisa as centaurs by SoihtuSS
Shizuma and Nagisa from an anime called Strawberry Panic as centaurs. I saw Strawberry Panic back in 2007 and it's my favourite anime of all time. It was really fun to finally do proper fanart of the two main characters (even though they're now centaurs haha).

This took at least 12 hours and probably more but I didn't really count the time and I was doing some other stuff at the same time so it's hard to say. The pose of the two characters is based on this official art of the anime: www.zerochan.net/1138842#full

I'm surprised no one has commented on this, this is excellent. Some of the best centaur art on DA. Not many artists get the proportions on horses all the way right, let alone get them down enough to make one of them shorter than the other like you did here. Not to mention placing their human halves before the withers, which I like anatomically, replacing the neck and all that and adding verisimilitude.

Approval is yours!

I really appreciate your comment! Thanks a lot for the compliments and the fav! Hug 

I've been drawing horses for a couple of years now and when I "discovered" centaurs a couple months ago I was amazed how you can combine two gorgeous creatures (horses and humans) instead of doing just one or the other. I've been drawing centaurs for quite a bit lately and this particular drawing is definitely one of my best ones so far. It's important for me to get the "anatomy" of a centaur look good (like you mentioned) even though it's quite challenging because they don't really exists so I just have to try out what looks the best.

This picture a very new submission and so is my account so that probably explains the lack of comments!

If I understood your question correctly you're asking me how long I've known about fantasy creatures like the ones you mentioned? I'm pretty sure I got to know most fantasy creatures around ages 5-10 when I was most interested in fantasy books, movies etc. (Harry Potter type stuff).
