Thanks , he is a Centaur, defending his castle, glad you see him that way...

Guest's picture

This creature Whatever He is, is marvellous.His body language is showing his intentions that he will go to "extreme"( the skulls and bones at the start of the bridge ) to DEFEND his castle ( If it really belongs to him)

Thanks, I used a photo of bodybuilder posing for reference, he was flexing that arm rather than drawing an arrow, did not quite shake that stiff posed look in that area...(good eye)...but glad you like it...Smile

Guest's picture

I love this! The flesh tones are awesome.... I've only one thing, the left arm looks kind of...awkward. 'Tis very possible it's just how he's holding the arrow, but it gives it kind of a distorted look. I love the horse's body, nice work!

Thanks , great to hear this catches your eye...

Guest's picture

The torso is very eye-catching and draws you in. Good job!

Hey Erika, I thought some one would pick up on that sooner, Im also a sagitarius(12/1), also thanks for your nice comments on this...

I love this image particularly because I'm a sagitarius and the centaur/ bow and arrow is the symbol of my sign....but aside from that I really love the muted color palette and the composition. Excellent work!

portalrun's picture

Thank you...

Hey Patrick, thank you ,Im trying to work on developing and improving my painting, so im glad you like this and find it better than the last version, im always looking in your gallery to see how you handled things , and your comments always inspire me....

Even better in color! a lot of subtleties popped out in this version - for some reason the reflections are especially wonderful in this one. Very fine work!

Hi Chalcara, dont worry about the double posting, Centaur Scout likes the attention, being a kinda dark character I threw the devil tail in to ad to that feeling, and painting over the pencils went faster than I thought it would , just followed my pencils carefully, the original pencils and composition & reference seemed to be most of the work ,also looking forward to your next character....and thanks for your interest...its well appreciated..

But I've just noticed his tail! It's POINTED like a devil's tail. *snickers* Now THAT's unusual for a centaur. I like it!You've put that much detail in this image, that every look on it reveals so much new things. That must have been such a lot work!

portalrun's picture

Your right on Chalcara , that was the most difficult area (blending torso's)and thank you for noticing...

chalcara's picture

And I like how you managed the border between his horsebody and his humanparts. I think that's the most difficult part at a centaur.

portalrun's picture

Well thanks for your kind comments Gwynn, and looking to see some new art from you...

Ooh, I loved this in monochrome, and in colour it really breathes. Cheers!

portalrun's picture

Thanks Denny, following the original pencil tones helped alot, glad you like the way it came out...

portalrun's picture

Hey thanks Christine, thats a great compliment:)

This is excellent! The anotomy could't be any more perfect. The background is stunning! Smile

portalrun's picture

Thanks Bill, Im glad this looks traditionally done to you, was trying for that look, also really appreciate your comments and support...

portalrun's picture

Thanks Ishan, I'm starting to feel more comfortable with the digital as I do more of it, learned alot with this one, the pencil start was a big help, I really like that mix (pencils & digital), and will be doing alot more of it....

portalrun's picture
