The Second Quest Begins by phantom-inker The Second Quest Begins by phantom-inker
Flare had sought the priceless Golden Pegasus Statue for months. Legend said that with it, the injured could be healed, the lame could walk again, and man could even fly to the heavens. If the legends were true, and her best friend's leg would at last be healed. All the clues and all the advice and all the searching had led her deep into this cave in the mountains, and there it was at last, her Grand Quest complete.

And with its completion, as her hand touched the statue, a Second Quest was now begun: A Quest to undo the First Quest.

It's April 16, Draw a Centaur Day!

And for this year's entry, I present to you Flare as a puzzled winged centauress, the 250,000 pageview kiriban requested by ~10110100. Ain't she cute with wings?

Big thanks to everybody who joined in the LiveStream while I drew this, and for all the neat suggestions!

For those who're curious, I did this in a single sitting, about 15 hours long. It was done entirely with a mouse. The background was painted in Corel Photo-Paint, and all of Flare herself and the statue were vector art in CorelDRAW, and were composited in CorelDRAW.

See you again after another 250,000 pageviews!

Edit: Per ~10110100's request, I've removed certain, er, parts from the drawing to make it more G-rated. You can still find the anatomically-correct version on my website.

That's a cute little story, although I can only imagine what a flying centaur would look like when airborne.

For some reason I can'tsop thinking of the original Legend of Zelda game, probably First Quest and Second Quest.

Yes, she looks great with the wings!

Just... I hope she's happy with the transformation herself too... she doesn't look too thrilled... or is she surprised by "us" coming in or the picture being taken? ;)

Nice work! Neat idea too!
