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.

It just shows as a bunch of random code on my computer. The "say you are eighteen" box shows up at the bottom, but when I clicked it, it went back to random cde, no images or anything.

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

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!

Per ~10110100's request, she's a little startled at the result of touching the statue. There's nobody else in the cave with her ;)

*nod* I also read afterwards that the 'second quest' was to 'undo the first', so then it became obvious she probably didn't want to stay in that shape. :P

Again, wonderful piece of artwork!

Well, they don't, but they DO offer Quests. Of course, most Quests end in death, and those that don't rarely have such a nice outcome as this, but still... ;)

But sorry for her.
They should have put a "Do not touch" sign there. ;-)

Who puts a "Do not touch" sign on a lost statue in an overgrown centuries-forgotten cave on an uninhabited Greek island?

The EU does.
Especially in Greece nowadays.

Also they may put up a sign: "Bottomless hole somewhere! May lead to another world which is still to be explored further!" <hint, hint>
