a vampire lady whose wives help her with her hair and makeup since she can’t see herself in a mirror.
ghost girlfriends who ‘haunt’ the local gay bar, innocuously changing the music to the jazz that played when they were young. the owner loves it and remodels the bar to match.
a centaur and a faun who live in a cute forest cottage with wide doors and an apple orchard in the back. the faun does the gardening since her wife can’t comfortably reach the earth with her human hands, and the centaur picks the apples from the tall trees.
a gorgon with a gargoyle girlfriend who can always turn back from stone after looking into her eyes.
a siren who will die if a ship ever sails past her cove, and her harpie girlfriend who snatches up the sailors that try to resist the song.
werewolf wives with eight children. they are total soccer moms and the rest of the pta was terrified of them for months, but they won the other moms over with an amazing shepard’s pie at the potluck.
scylla and charybdis, cursed to half-lives as monsters living across from one another in the strait, find comfort in each other’s company. sailors talk of the pass between them narrowing at nights, truly impassible.
You’ve asked me a lot for a centaur tutorial but I absolutely suck at doing stuff like that because I rely so much on my own eye measuring and I almost never do sketches like this, so bear with me. 1: The horse body!
I managed to break down the body into lots of triangles and lines and what have you, in a way that I find easy and accurate to use. This is the body of Dan, (an english full blood) but it’s really easy to alter between breeds! For example, I used this when doing the lineup, take two of the most altered ones:
2: Put some meat on it
Keep in mind that if you have no idea how to draw then you probably should just drop this because as you can see I’m skipping ahead assuming you know how to meat a stick figure, and also have a ground feeling of what a horse really should look like. But it’s starting to take shape, doesn’t it? The tip of the withers should be around the tip of the hip.
3: Legs and hooves
Make sure you don’t make the knees and hocks too defined (if you want to draw a full grown horse will say. It works on younger horses and foals though!) And also not like noodles. Watch out for making the hind legs too curved or too straight when standing properly. You want your hooves to be balanced, keep that in mind!
4: Add the human body
You’ve got a nice red line there to keep track of the spine. Dan’s human part is slim and a bit smaller, which adds to his rather big but slender breed. Now of course I’m still assuming that you know how to draw humans as well. That’s what it’s about, draw loads of humans and loads of horses and mash them together in a way that you see fit!
I prefer to use colours that the actual breed can have, and to match their hair with their tail. A paint is a difference though, as it might have different pigments in skull and tail root.
This has been a quick and confusing tutorial in which I also claim that I am in no way an expert on this, thank you good night
Throwing my theories onto the fire asto the science of mythical horse-butted babies.
nO THIS WAS NOT an excuse to draw tiny chubbly-wubblum baby Clyde and lanky knobbly foal legs. NEVER.
FOR SCIENCE! Like gestating in the horse half would mostly remove the limitations of the human pelvis that restricts the size of a babies head so a foalby could be born mostly ready to go with just a small period of intensive care that human bebes require. Also adding unique behaviors while solving my personal problem with wtf centaurs do with their hands/arms when running. Obviously they wouldn’t do the tuck and run all the time but if you’re scared you don’t want extraneous limbs flapping about throwing your balance off if they weren’t necessary.
