I've gotten loads of requests to do more centaurs. But what I really want to draw is my book characters. So, to make everyone happy I've decided to do a series of picture of my regular characters, but to draw them as centaurs. This one is completely coloured in PSD, and I must admit, I'm quite happy with it! Allthough, I still have a looooong way to go when it comes to computer-colouring.

This is the Third one:
Matthew Winterheart
A lord and a warrior. Nala's younger halfbrother.
He might be an arrogant bastard, but he is one of the most skilled warriors in the North. Despite his youth.

I was inspired to put clothes on him by the picture 'Princess, my Princess', made by Nina 'Fhiserya' Ikävalko. Go look at that pic! One could just die but the sheer cuteness!
Anyway, it was really fun to design clothes that a centaur noble might wear. What do you think of it?

Xaipe! Well, it just proves the old saying I just made up: "Once you go 'Taur....you only want more."

Very nice: the leggings are a little unusual; but the rest of his uniform is quite good by caparison (sorry: evil pun there that I just couldn't resist....) 7@=e

And again, I am left drooling.

I think your computer colouring is excellent ^^.

His hands look a little small, but maybe that's just me. It's still very nice ^_^.
