I guess the Secretariat movie really got my brain back into race horse gear. I grew up reading (and rereading and rereading) the Black Stallion series, so I have all this race horse stuff waaaay deep in the subliminal parts of my brain.
So here’s a pre-race centaur, wearing his silks and having a mug of coffee or tea.
So now I have this itch to come up with a fantasy version with racing centaurs. They’d run horse-style races, and have the speed ones and the jumping ones and all those different horse-type events, but the centaurs themselves would be more like athletes. They’d do commercials and fish for sponsors and be all about the exercise and the diets and the vitamins (and there’d be drug and steroid scandals).
Except they’re, you know, centaurs.
And now I want to draw a centaur at a farrier, getting his shoes done, while he reads a newspaper. XD
Referred to this horse tutorial for reference.
