this picture just developed itself, it started out simple but now it lookes like a frame from a movie and seems to tell a story. this pic started with the girl and i wanted her without clothes as i wanted her to seem natural and wild, but i wanted to hide her chest (its not that i have a problem with female nudity but frankly it seems images with bare boobs get less comments as there are some people who are turned away from any kind of nudity, i think my Kituse of Stars image may have done better without the bare breast) so i put her hands up to hide her chest as hiding the boobs with hair looked "staged" and that censorship idea has been played out. But then her body language seemed anxious and I needed a reason for the way she looked, so I have a male following her. She seems reluctant about something, like she is pulling away from him, she is unsure about something and is running away from him, I don't see why though, the appaloosa seems like a really nice guy. the poor guy is confused and a bit hurt by her behavior and it hurts him to see her upset, and so he follows her, trying to reassure her.

Why do they have to be topless 8

in response to mr. anonymous there,
because they are NOT HUMAN
humans are the only species known with a hang up of covering themselves. i have no problem with nudity in wild creatures and will never have a problem with it until wild tigers decide they need to wear pants and dresses.
centaurs are not human, they have humanoid parts, but that does not make them the same. if it did, you’d have to classify all monkeys with opposable thumbs as human. or dolphins as they have higher brain functions as well.
there is a huge difference between nudity in art and the kind that people stick their noses up at but sadly they both get clumped into the same section.
so mr. whiney about clothing, until you go to every picture of a bunny without pants or "naked" cow, i don’t think you have any room to complain. especially as you so bravely left no name.
i’m Sara Culver. and i haven’t posted anything new since the crash years ago but if i’m not mistaken i do still have a page here somewhere.

i think the lines are beautiful and the coloring is excellent. there is a story behind these two that may show itself someday in future works. i do not see her as covering her chest, i see her as protecting her heart. you are a very talented artist.

Nakedness is nature. Freedom. Fecklessness. Love. Great looking. and Perfectly artistic. All of you who say otherwise forget that you were born naked, live naked, and die naked, no matter how many clothes you put on to hide your beauty. Hypocrites.

I like how you portray them as very natural creatures, with no clothes and coloration that persists to the human part as well. Well done!

I think this is amazing! I love the way the parttern continues and blends so well between the human and animal parts.
