I do - WIP1 by phantom-inker I do - WIP1 by phantom-inker
In a little over three months' time, I'm going to be married, and in preparation for that, I've been working on this picture, off-and-on, for a few weeks now. My lovely future wife, ~sngbrd2002, and I are both centaur-holics and anime fanatics and incurable romantics, and I wanted to draw a picture that showed all those together, that showed what she and I will really be seeing when we stand at the altar. The rest of the room won't be seeing this, but you better believe we'll be seeing it :)

I don't know what her dress looks like, so this is somewhat of a guess; it's also been trimmed a bit to fit an equine half. Her hair, though, is going to be done pretty much exactly like that, and that's my exact tux from Men's Wearhouse.

This is... golly, maybe fifteen hours so far. There's a lot more detail to add: The hands need to be drawn for real, and everything needs shading (I'm going to be a speckled grey shade that she absolutely loves every time she sees it).

The final version of this will probably be printed large and hung over our bed.

Edit: This now has correct colors: Songbird says her dress and my vest and shirt are ivory, not white, despite the picture she showed me, so they're now ivory here too. Yay for ivory! :D

Fantastic! I can appreciate all the work you've put into this, as I'm sure Songbird does as well.

I could visualize a centauress in various shirts, but never a dress. Somehow you've made the dress work beautifully. I kind of like it without the shading--it fits the simplicity of the lines. Nice touch with the ivory. ;)

Thankee! We love being married. It's been nearly six months now, and I'll tell ya, when you find the right person, it makes everything in every day seem better. I do plan to finish this picture, and we really will have it hanging over our bed in the bedroom in the not-too-distant future (I hope).

Thanks, Don! One of these days I really have to get you those photos I promised you. I actually started this before we talked about a wedding picture, and, well, I'm hoping to have it completed in time for the wedding. But I still do hope to get you those photos; we'd love to have a genuine Ric original hanging on our wall.

This is really cool. I'm also a taur fan myself. BTW, do you do requests or commissions? Just curious. ^^

Thanks, but sorry, no, I don't. I posted about this in my journal some months ago: [link]

I see. But that's okay. ^^ For once, I sure like to see your take one day on anthro centaurs on popular anthro characters like the Egyptian god Anubis as a taur or something. But hey that's just me. Keep up the good work.

Hello again Phantom, I'm the girl who came to thank you some time ago because you said that you liked my (crappy) centaur pictures. :D I still intend to draw you a fan art of one of your pretty characters, I just haven't got so much time during the winter. I'm honestly happy for you and for your future wife and I wish you two all the possible happiness in your lives! I shall draw you the fan art I promised as soon as possible. Everything good to you and your future wife,

~C

They weren't crappy; they were good, and I'm sure the more you do, the better you'll get. Thank you for liking my work enough to be willing to draw fanart of it! :)

Oh I do hope we get to see the finished version of this, because it's quite lovely. :D

Eventually, yes, but only a small version. The full-sized version will hang over our bed and that'll be the only one :)

This is just lovely. The emotion radiating from this piece makes it a true masterpiece, even unfinished as it is. I think it's sweet that you and your bride-to-be share your love of centaurs, and I wish you both the best.
