Equine Elegance - blue by asa-bryndis Equine Elegance - blue by asa-bryndis
I know the outcome of the Greek mythology poll was a nymph (which I'm working on!), this is just something I made today for fun--and it also happens to be in the Greek pantheion.

And it's not just any centaur! It's one of the beautiful centaurettes from Fantasia. I just rewatched it recently and had this urge to draw her. The blue one was always my favourite! I had such a blast doing this, though, that I'll probably watch the segment again and pick another four legged lady to draw soon :)

I tried to capture her original design and I didn't shade her either, I tried, but it didn't seem to suit her simple beauty. I basically tried to make it as close to a screenshot as I could.

The blue one is my favorite of the centaurettes, too. :) She actually was an inspiration for my OC centaurette a while back.

This has always been my favorite Centaurette in the Pastoral sequence, so it's nice to see more fanart of her <3 :iconsobeautifulplz: On the other hand it's too bad there isn't more fanart of her with her beau

Me too! My sister and I always liked her the best, we always liked this scene of fantasia the best too! We would fast-foward it until it came to the scene with the Pegasus'. I think that her long tail with the beautiful flowers is why people like her the best out of all the other Centaurettes.

Thank you! Yeah, a lot of people seem to like the blue centaurette. I agree, art of her and the beau would be cute!

Of those two I think she got slightly more screentime than her beau. I remember seeing her for a few seconds in the second half of the Pastoral sequence (second half being Bacchus' (I prefer to think it's Silenus, because he does ride a donkey) party and onwards)though her hair was styled differently then. *Goes off to find fanfiction of these two*

I actually first saw her on DTV Valentine's, (Disney Television!) back during the 80s. They did a few of those, at least 3, where they took modern popular songs and basically made their own Disney AMVs to the song - they used the Pastoral scene from Fantasia for the Eurythmics "Must Be Talking To An Angel". My mom had recorded it (on VHS lol) for me, and I watched it over and over and over - Anyway, It was love at first site. I didn't actually see her in Fantasia until I was a bit older, but I still loved her there too (Though I think I might actually like her strutting around to Annie Lennox better!)

Oh oh oh, it's on Youtube! (Hurry before it gets taken down)

The scene I'm talking about starts at around 8:12.

Hi, do you think you can make a tutorial out of this ? I'll be very interested to do some of my own the same way.

Very nice job, by the way.

Thanks for the kind comment and interest in my work :aww: Unfortunately I do not have the time right now for a tutorial, but I could show you one that uses pretty much the same technique that I use! ~B1nd1 has posted this very thorough Photoshop tutorial that I'm sure could be of much use to you: [link] I happened not to have shaded this particular piece (the Centaurette), but in most of my inked work, I've used this method :) Hope this answers your questions!

Ah, thanks, I see what you mean! Well, I simply use a Wacom Intuos drawing tablet and draw my lines directly into Photoshop, using a basic hard round brush. I guess that's all there is too it! It took me a while to find a method that really suited me when I'm making the actual lines, but with enough practice, I'm sure you can find your style too :)
