The harpist centaur by giovannag The harpist centaur by giovannag
Made in Painter and Photoshop.

UPDATE in 03-02-2007: As I'm a target to art thiefs, I'm changing the file for one with a smaller size and a larger watermark.
Doing this, I know visitors can't see the details, but is to try to prevent problems.

Excellent job!

The only "critique" is that I prefer the ears to be equine.
That's a preference, and an artistic decision.

I've seen this on WebShots. Did you submit it, or did someone else? Art theft is getting to be something else now. I have to copyright all my stuff now. It's not that great, and maybe not worth ANYONE'S time like this one is, but you NEVER KNOW....:(

Very beautiful piece, I must say.

I'm assuming, from the feathers, and other accessories he's wearing, that he is of Native American origin, though, the human skintone, and background might suggest otherwise? (Though, this is fantasy, he could be on planet Jujucadanglegar for all we know). The Elf-ears make him have a bit more elegant, and artistic impression. Human ears might be more appropriate for a more athletic impression.

Interesting how you use the belt to hide the hard-to-color transition between human flesh, and horse hide. And speaking of horse hide, I'm adoring the sheens you put into it. Makes him look like a very healthy and vigourous centaur.

I also find it interesting how the hair on his head is stationary, while the hair on his tail is flowing and active. Was there a fan blowing that tail off-panel? (Just being silly!)

Still, quite an elegant piece, I like the mood of eloquence and peacefulness in this piece.

When I made this picture, the idea was give him a native people-look, but I didn't thought in how native people. The face look like american, some itens he wear too, and some itens are a little like native brazilian people. A misc of styles,I think. And the elf ears it's here just because I love pointed ears! ^^ The intention was a misc of native, fantasy, elfish character!
Hehehehe, it's a shaking tail! ^^
Thank you very much!! :hug:
