Centicore by mereni Centicore by mereni
Centicore (Or Centycore) is a goat-like four-legged creature with large horns. They are sometimes drawn with the faces of a lion.

I wanted to draw something similar to that but my own interpretation. So I added the long, bushy tail, the lion mane and leathery wings. I gave it more of a horse look than a goat, seeing as it'll have to have some kind of power in its legs to be able to carry people. As the bridle and saddle suggests that you can ride it. WHICH IS TRUE. Though it will cost you 8 silver for an ride. YEEEEAAHHH.

Can I use this for a project I am working on? Looking for a slightly different take on a centicore to match the different take Dungeons and Dragons had on the basilisk.

This is a fascinating creature and one you don't really see around. I love how stylistically you made this work of the centicore, too, with the flowing longer portions of fur/hair on the mane, tail, belly, and ankles.

This is a lovely painting! (A centicore, huh? I just learned something!) The physiology definitely gives the impression of being lion/horse-like (rather than goat-like), as you said. Also, the mane and tail are rather reminiscent of feathers, and the combination of different animal textures works really well for me on this picture. The thick hair on the hocks and fetlocks is totally lush. It appears overall as a very strange, powerful and other-worldy beast. Nice job.

Thank you so much! I'm so pleased you were able to pick up on the fact I wanted him more horse like : D It was difficult to pull off that look. Thank you, I really appreciate your comment! :hug:

Nice job, I really like the thought you've put into the animal's physiology, and the details are great. :D The wings look very powerful as well.

All I'd really suggest is to darken the shading in a few places, such as the legs on the far side of his body and where the wings cover the body.
But other than that, great work! :D

Thank you so much! I agree, it'll give it a more two dimensional look if I can darken the far side features. I'll dig out the psd file soon and have a go :p

Nice definition on the musculature. Especially on the wings. I see a lot of people that make the wings very dainty, but these look like he could actually fly and support himself and his rider. Very nice job making him look strong and not cutesy.

Also like the shading. It really gives the piece depth, particularly the hair.

Thank you so much! My work is annoyingly cutesy so I'm really pleased you picked up on the fact that he looks strong and not adorable xD I really did try! Thank you! <3

This is really cool and professional looking *o*
Your linework and shading really go together nicely, the whole piece looks really polished :D
For some reason I really really like the saddle and reigns on him, I like how they match and look all sort af fancy and royal blue so you know it'll be comfortable to ride on x3
So yeah :airborne:
