Trogdor and Family by Yubria Trogdor and Family by Yubria
Of all the things I could (and should) be doing to cut down my to-do list, I do none of them. I draw these guys instead. (FYI- they are literally my newest characters, invented for *kelpiehunterkai's Save Kainne contest.) As it turns out, I fell in love with these three.

Trogdor: is the lovely dark bay. He's fun, prankish, cheerful, energetic, out going, and a bit on the rash side of bravery. In the contest entry, he's been one of the dark elves' slaves for a couple years and has always been on the lookout for escape. Unfortunately, he hasn't had a chance until [link] , as he can't help not making life difficult for the dark elves, which only makes them all the more careful to keep him from getting away. When he does find the opporunity, he (eventually- click above link for more info) escapes by the skin of his teeth and sooner or later makes it back home.

Medli: is the beautiful champange (or something like that); Trogdor's wife. She loves Trogdor and his antics, while she herself is pretty mellow.

Faila: is the cute bucksking paint, Trogdor and Medli's daughter. She has a thing for flowers, and, having been born only a short time before Trogdor was captured, never knew her father until after he got back home, although she loves it when Medli tells her story about Trogdor.


Ok, so that's it. Onto real projects.
(art, characters, etc are mine. don't use.)

I am doubting the credentials of this Trogdor on account of the utter lack of everything being burninated and the amount of peasants and cottages not on fire. XD

Everytime I look at this I have to stop and stare at it :heart:

I love how it shoes Trog staring into the fire. It makes me imagine he's seeing these memories come to life in the smoke, like how Spirit's do in the snow in Spirit stallion of the Cimmaron.

But for your contest prize I need to know if she's this age when he get home, or is that the age she is when he was captured?:)

She's that age when he gets home. She's either a few days old or still in Medli's belly when he gets captured.

Wow... so she wouldn't even know him. Adn he wouldn't recognize her, at least not physically. He's probably know her by fatherly instinct though.

She wouldn't, but she loves it when her mom tells her stories about Trog (which there are plenty of...).

Does her mother think he's still alive? 'i'm trying to figure out the expression to put on her face

She's hoping and thinking he is (just cuz he's not the type to give up on life), but isn't expecting to ever see him again. If that helps. *is drawing all 3 of them at the mo*

(I can't wait to see the pic you are drawing of them. XD I am officially thier biggest fan XD I :heart: Trogdor!!)

Does she know what happened to him? Most centaurs the dark elves capture are wandering out from their herds, that way they are more easily picked off without alerting the rest of the centaurs. That also leaves the herd with no known thing to fear so they are less likely to anticipate the next attack in a few years (or in some cases a few months). (I have most of your picture done I am adding in screen tones tonight, so it should be done tonight :)

(Awesome! Haha, I think I'm gonna see if I can sneak those three into the backround of KoP somewheres. :D)

Yeah- she almost got captured b/c they were both out enjoying the day and stuff when the dark elves showed up. Trog could've escaped, but instead he doubled back and caused enough confusion/chaos for her to get away by the time he was captured.

Awesome! Can't wait to see it!!

Wow, your artwork is hypnotic!!
Very awesome delivery in your multiple scenes merging!! O.O

Hehe I'm so jealous!
I love your centaurs!
(I guess there aren't too few centaurs lovers out there!)
Medli is a champange polomino!

Your chacters have a healthy "air" about themselves *.*

Yubria Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2010
Thank you! But I must ask- what about it is hypnotic? That's the first I've heard someone describe my art like that. :D

On the contrary, I think centaurs don't get nearly enough love. But then again, anything that isn't a dragon, elf, demon, or angel doesn't seem to get much attention, sadly enough. ):

The colors convey to you a "hypnotizing" effect!
So I mean that it is so vivid! *.*
LOL! I'm sorry if I wasn't more specific XD!

Hehe your right, centaurs do not get enough love, probably because they look a bit intimidating given the anatomy build :\ Hmm but all the more, if thats the case in loving them! They are unique, not just some oversized lizard breathing fire or a creatures who has like a dozen features to many animals, calling it a "demon" you know...><

But sheesh, dragons, faries, elves and such get all the love XO
I think its sorta of typical, plus there's like a large investment in them as to movies about them...just like vampires and wherewolves.
Maybe thats why?

So yeah centaurs are not loved enough.
Hehe why I even had a VERY hard time finding those who love them and still draw them(I found a bunch of like random websites dedicated to centaurs and unfortunately they are WAYYY outdated.. GAHH...! O.O

But hey, I hope you keep creating more of your centaurs!!! *.* pwease!
Hell plus I'd love to trade for your software, *hehehe*!

Haha, that's ok! Thank you very much. :)

I think you're right- the anatomy probably has something to do something with it. It's tricky to make it look natural. :P

I will! And for this I used Corel Painter X to color underneath some pencil drawings, in case you were wondering. It's a great program! ^^

This is so cute! I especially love where Trogdor's holding his little girl up ^v^ We always called taht "Baby in Space" when my dad would do that for me and my little sisters XD of course that horse half would make the inspace part kinda hard :heart: but this is adorable :heart::heart:

MOVING ON. Very nice character design, as usual. ^^ Trogdor's coloration is especially cool.

*hisses at the link* Stupid thing. Alright, then... Go to homestarrunner.com, toons, strongbad email, go down about 2/3 on the bar, find the one titled "dragon".

Most likely. ^^
