Girl Talk by phantom-inker Girl Talk by phantom-inker
"You know," said Laura, glaring at them, "you could have just used the money to change me back."

"Nonsense," said Heather. "You wanted to be a centaur, so you're a centaur."

Laura grimaced. "I only wanted to be a centaur because that ass was a centaur."

Kia patted her on the shoulder. "Just because Rob was a jerk doesn't mean every centaur guy is a jerk. And, more importantly, we all know you wanted to be a centaur long before you met him."

"But look at you two. You don't want to be centaurs. I'm not even sure I do."

"Idiot," said Heather. "I've known you since kindergarten, and you've been horse-crazy since day one. Come on, you obsess over pegasuses, you know the Last Unicorn word for word, you got yourself a vet degree, and your calendar has pin-up centaur guys on it! You know darn well you don't want to change back. You were just dumb enough to fall for the first four-legged cheating slimeball you met."

"But you "

"It's our money," said Kia. "And we're supporting a friend in her time of need. Besides, it was only two hundred dollars each. And I haven't been a centaur yet, so it might be kind of fun for a while. I bet Tom's head will explode when he sees me."

"Now then," said Heather, walking over to the television with a data stick in hand, "shall we get this slumber party started? I have girl-power movies, romance movies, fantasy movies, and horse movies. What are we starting with?"

Laura slumped down on the floor. "Anything with all four at once. And you guys better have brought chocolate ice cream."




So after a bit of effort, some of it over LiveStream, I've colored and shaded this picture, and even added a bit of a background. The original lineart was good, and inspiring enough to go further, and this is the result, after maybe 60 hours total of drawing and coloring time, entirely in CorelDRAW. I don't quite know why this picture inspired me so; it's G-rated and anti-male, and yet it's still enjoyable. Maybe it's the interaction between the characters.

My wife thinks the girls look like desserts: An orangesicle, a chocolate shake with a cherry on top, and blueberry pie filling. I guess I can see that.

So, yeah, anyway, Girl Talk. Centaur-girl slumber party. There ya have it.

Feel free to offer comments and opinions! I'd love to hear what you think!

UPDATE, 9/3/2011: Minor revisions to Heather's nightgown, to fix a layering issue, and to make it a little less sheer.

The idea that they paid to be centaurs (and the possibility that they could become some other kind of creature) would be great in real life,don't you think?

Looks great.

Imagine being a centaur and having to take public transportation.
Yeah, you can run as fast as a regular horse but a train/bus moves faster and there is the fun part of pushing through crowds.
How would you sit on a train or bus?

Anyway, interesting idea.

I could tell you drew this just from the thumbnail in my messages- it looks really good, you definitely have your own style xD

And transformation parlors sound downright cool- the dialogue between the girls subtly gives you so much info on it xD

Faved~!

Just don't go to one of those cut-rate transformation parlors that charge half the money for the "same" change. You get what you pay for, and just because your goal is to be half horse doesn't mean it'll be the half that you want.

I like how, aside from (apparently being confection colored) they have their differences too, like how the tails match their hair. Although, only $200 for a complete species change? Where do I sign up and what else can they do?! Maybe a follow up with Laura still a centaur, Kim's hair would look great underwater as a mermaid, and Heather as a drider?

In the world I dreamed up for them, a full-body treatment at a transformation parlor costs $199.95 (plus tax). And there's a special running, where if you buy a tail for $29.95, they'll throw in pointed ears for free.

I usually don't do follow-ups of a given picture.

There's just one line on the Orangesicle's chest that looks odd, it's a curve in the shirt that makes a weird edge on the side of the horse shoulder.

Everything else fantastic, from concept to composition.

Which curve? They generally look right to me as they are.

:iconkiyarasabel:
KiyaraSabel Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Right where the left foreleg meets the body, the curve on the nightshift looks like it's a curve on the body and that there's a flap of flesh.

Perhaps if the lines on the nightshift were not the same (or so close) color as the ones of the body?

The lines are in the right spots, but it blends into the body a little much right there. I know what it's supposed to be, but I can't unsee a flap there, even though I know it's not, y'know?

Hmm... I see what you're saying. I've made some tweaks to it, and I'm going to post a revised version. Her nightgown is a little less sheer now, and that line has been moved. I actually like the new result more, so it was a good suggestion.

Yeah, art's like that. It usually needs a second glance with fresh eyes, as working on the art blinds you to it at the same time. I do like the revision, it works much better.

Unfortunately, that much will only buy a lesser treatment at the transformation parlor for $129.95: That's enough money to end up a furry, but if you want to rearrange your internal organs into a non-humanoid design, that costs more.

I guess I'm just surprised that women do that kind of stuff; thought it was more of a high school thing (and it might just be the lack of sleep, but the fact that I find more suprising than them being half-horse rather silly).

Also, and this is just me nitpicking, but Kia seems to be standing a bit far from Laura, what with the way she's having to reach to pat her on the back.

Now something I have to start wondering.... How DID people start to turn into demihumans origionally?
Reply
:iconcukeman:
Cukeman Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2011  Student Artist
It'd either have to be a recent innovation at this particular moment, or humans and demihumans alike bear human children, or this just happened to be a group of friends who were all born human. Or a combination of the three. Hopefully notthat last one, since it'd have unfortunate implications of segregation, going by the dialogue.
