Centaur Proportion Tutorial by Yubria Centaur Proportion Tutorial by Yubria
EDIT EDIT: Added something I forgot.

EDIT: Fixed some typos *Uinn pointed out (thanks!). I guess I should also mention that the book I referred to was Drawing and Painting Horses by Barbara Oelke. It's a pretty awesome and VERY thorough book.

Ever since my last centaur tutorial ([link] - which is more of how-I-draw tutorial than anything else) I've been wanting to upload a more helpful tutorial about proportions, because in my opinion, it's the proportions that are the most important in making them believable/natural and the hardest to get right. So this is how I've been drawing centaurs for a while, and I've found it to be a pretty quick and easy method. If there are any typos, anything doesn't make sense, or if you have any questions, please let me know.

FYI because I'm a proud horse owner- that's my horse in the photo ref. :) He looks a lot better when he's groomed, though. He's a Thoroughbred/Quarter Horse, pretty short, and super fast. His name is Jireh (as in Jehovah Jireh, which is Hebrew for "God provides." We figured it was an appropriate name because Jireh was given to me). He currently lives in a pasture adjacent to our backyard. :heart:

That's a nice tutorial, thanks for sharing! :heart:
Though, I'm afraid, you've submitted it into the wrong category. The deviantART Related / deviantART Tutorial category is for tutorials about deviantART like for example "how to manage your friends' list", "how to edit your dA settings" or all kinds of tutorials about the CSS skins for subscribed accounts.

Your tutorial fits best into the this category in the Resources & Stock Images gallery, because it's about digital painting and drawing, but isn't bound to a special painting software. :-)

Thanks for clarifying that. I haven't submitted many tutorials, so what category to put them in is kind of confusing. :)
