Meet Corinne the centauress. Ain't she cute?
I've been working on this picture for what seems like ages now, and today I finished off the last few details, mostly involving the shading on her lower half. I started this picture because I wanted to show a modern-day centaur girl in a dress, all cute and spunky, looking back over her shoulder at the camera, and I wanted it to be a good enough picture that it'd work well on my front page. So here she is.
I have no idea how much time was involved in this (40 hours? 50 hours?), but it's 100% vector-art-with-a-mouse from start to finish: No bitmaps were harmed in the drawing of this picture
This was loosely inspired by Akino Arai's song Follow Me
, for those who are curious, and inspired more by the sound and feel of the song than by the words (though the title obviously was involved).
(This is the G-rated Disney-fied version; if you want the anatomically-correct version, there's one posted in my private gallery
