Quick Tutorial on Centaurs by Yubria Quick Tutorial on Centaurs by Yubria
EDIT: I have a more in-depth centaur tutorial here --> [link] if you would like to take a look.

Tutorial pretty much says it all, really. Made mostly because last night I was trying to help ~Fireaze a little with his centaurs and I said I'd do some sketches for him, but as I was doing them I figured I might as well throw in some explanation and this is what came out.
I hope it helps- centaurs are tricky creatures that don't get a lot of attention, and I haven't seen any tutorials about them (a few anatomy charts, though). Eventually I'll make a much more thorough anatomy study/tutorial, but this will have to suffice for now.

This is AMAZING, and so freakin' helpful. <3333 I've been fascinated/obsessed with centaurs and how to mix up their anatomy. But my own horse knowledge is so limited it's laughable. D'= If you could take a quick look at my digital centaur sketches, and maybe note me, that'd be too much to ask. BUT I REALLY WANT TO ASK ANYWAY.

Oh man, I'm SO sorry I took so long replying to you. I'm really terrible about getting back to online messages some times. :noes: I will be more than happy to critique your drawings if you still want me to. :)

This should be helpful. I'm a little nervous about drawing a centaur(iod), though I've been meaning to. I've drawn both bipeds and quadrupeds, and have the basic ability for both (though humaniods are definitely trickier)...so why am I afraid to combine them? XD;

I hope it does help- centaurs can be really tricky. Btw, I'm working on a better centaur tutorial I should be able to post in the next few days.

Yep: bean bodies. Always start with the bean bodies...... 7@=e

I recollect Roy Pounds (steamfox on FA) doing a 'taur tutorial some years ago; he had some tips on proportions as well....

Bean bodies- love it! (much more fitting than calling them stick figures, anyways.)

I'll have to check that out. Thanks for mentioning it!

But yeah, I like this tutorial. It's simple, and something that wouldn't always be considered!

...I would, if I had sufficient time and inspiration. Not nearly enough of the former, and way too much of the latter, as it is now. :P

Haha, ah well. I'll be posting them in UPD when I finish so you can see. I'm considering updating the journal on that to explain a lot. Mainly that we welcome visitors, but it still is fairly central to us members of the crew, and the group is more of a holding place for our contributions. I have a couple different gallery folders, like Comics, dragonsonas, featured and random. I want to save the featured for full pictures of specifically UPD, and random for stuff that includes UPD but it isn't the main focus.

aaahhh... I apologize for the word wall.

Interessant, I like watching other artist's technics. You don't use lines to place eyes, nose exct...? I prefer a same color for the horse-party and the human-party too, It's more "realistic" and "logicall" I think. And hair wich continue on the back like a mane ;)

I use them to get the general idea of where I want the facial features, but faces come easily enough now that I don't really need guides. That, and it's not uncommon for me to change my mind on the expression several times while I'm drawing it. :P
