He wanders alone in the mountains and forests of Colorado. His Best friend is an elk stag named Solaren. Done in pencil on white art paper. He dosn't have a stuck on name yet so any hints would be helpful.

Update: I redid the back legs and his face. I think they look alot better. This is just the start, i'm redefining the entire picture( hope to have it complete soon).

ONE comment? Pathetic! You other elfwoodians should be ashamed to leave such a lovely piece in want of comments! This has an AMAZING background. Its faint, and doesn't destract from your subject, but rather adds to the atmostphere. I would say it stands on its own, at the same time. Next, the tail is really awsome, with the highlights and shadows. Not to forget that your centaur is certainly exceeding in looks. I think I can guess who you used for reference! Keep up the good work!

Its been a while since I've found a picture on Elfwood of a Centaur that was worth leaving a mark on, and even longer yet with me leaving the first comment on one.

This picture is beautiful, and loney. Followers and roleplayers of Centaurs have believed for a long time that Centaurs have isolated themselves or retreated to very secluded areas away from humans who wouldn't accept them for who they are.

I think the only complaint that I can muster is that the Centaurs horse hindlegs could use just a bit more definition in their muscle strucure and stance, but other than that, its quite well done.

Its quite an honor to leave the first comment here.

A good pic of the Colorado Centaur. Please do another of his elk friend, it should be interesting.
