Female Centaur by DegreesOfDeath Female Centaur by DegreesOfDeath

I still love this concept and design. I just wish I could find a reason to develop this character further! X3 The horse body's anatomy also makes me happy. Except for that slightly wonky rear right leg and hoof....

Original Comments

I got bored one day and did a bit of research on random things and remembered reading that female centaurs were thought not to exist because in paintings they never had breasts. They didn't need breasts on the human part of the body because they already had the means to feed their children/foals on the horse body. It made sense to me, so I challenged myself to create a feminine centaur character lacking one (or two, rather) of the most defining feminine features. I think it turned out rather well.

I've always loved bay horses, and I really have no clue why she's holding a broken spear, but it looks like she's in the process of explaining it. The lighter and darker marks on her skin correspond to the markings on her horse body. They're more natural centaur birthmarks than anything, the way I see it.

She lacks a name or personality, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. As of yet, I have no places to role play or use her in any way.

It makes sense, and would probably be easier for a nursing mum centaur. It would probably be hard holding up a 50 pound baby to nurse from the human-breasts :P I like bay horses too! :3

I like the thought of female centaurs not having breasts. I've never heard of it before, but I find the concept neat :3
