Full-Colour commission for :iconcgaussie: of her 'Centaur' character

This was a commision of a centaur or sorts.
Not one w/ a Horse as the lower torso, but of a giraffe instead.
interesting idea.

Loosely based off of a written descrition by *cgaussie, i drew out what i understood from the description.
had fun w/ this, and also became annoyed at all those little details that i did.
I notice that i usually end up making more work for myself.

s'all good

:EDIT:
thanks to the permission of *cgaussie and from the interest shown by several people, this piece has been made into a print.

I've looked at this image numerous times. Sheets been one of my favs. I just now noticed your signature in the pattern of the giraffe leg. Nice touch man.

That's awesome! I did a similar thing almost a decade ago with a Zulu warrior/Zebra combo. Not all centaurs are Greek I hope.
