Kiva Taur by phantom-inker Kiva Taur by phantom-inker
So a friend of mine saw my picture of Ally and liked her and barter-commissioned me to draw Kiva, from Megas XLR, as a centaur. The price was very right, so I drew it. It's only flat-shaded, but it looks fairly like her, I think, and he liked it, so it's all good.

Kiva, of course, is copyright 2004 by Cartoon Network, and the pose of her lower half was inspired by a drawing by Twospotz, whose horse and centaur art continues to amaze me with its accuracy.

Note that this was a sort of a "double" commission; he asked for two separate versions of it, this being the first. See elsewhere in my gallery for the second.

Well, I generally don't take requests, but I'll take it under advisement. My fiancée has been complaining that there are too few nagas in my gallery anyway, so maybe I'm due for adding another.

Thanks for the compliments. I'm pretty busy these days (hence the lack of updates in my gallery), and this was a commission besides (as in: he paid). Between the two of those, it's unlikely that I'll draw Kiva again, but hey, y'never know ;)

Well, the commissioner had asked for Kiva, and I was trying to think of a good pose. I wanted her rearing a little, sorta surprised. So I started hunting through art by various centaur/horse/unicorn artists, and came across a pose in one of yours that just looked right as soon as I saw it. It was in your old gallery on your site, but you still have a copy in your Elfw**d gallery ( heh, shouldn't say the name of competing galleries here ;) ), albeit smaller than I first found. It's this picture HERE, and while you can see there are some pretty significant differences, you'll note that the legs are in a very, very similar pose. I didn't copy directly, but I had that on screen for most of the drawing as a reference.

And yes, you still remain one of the best centaur artists here in dA. I don't have you +Fav'd for nothing ;)
