Centaur by Ballistyc Centaur by Ballistyc
modern mythology created from genetic engineering. Im actually planning a whole series of these things. I'll make a minotaur next.

Bronze
Patina done in Photoshop
7" x 10"

CLICK HERE to see my Centaur drawing that I later drew


I did this in late 06'. I never got it completed past the initial bronze stage.....no treatment of the surface, no patina, straight bronze.....exactly the way it looked out of the shell. The Patina you see here was done in Photoshop.

I wanted the piece to look rough like a sketch, so I made the wax figure fairly quickly ignoring a lot of minor details, but once the bronze was poured I kind of regreted not doing more. I should've worked on it a little more to refine the forms.

I'm gonna do another one in polymer clay when I get the time....

This is so unbelievably beautiful ... the rough, textured quality of the skin ... the bent awkward body with its tiptoe feet ...

There are no words really.

I wouldn't want to meet it in a game though, it looks like it can run/sprint rather fast.

This is the most scientific, strangely accurate depiction of a centaur. I never understood why a man had to have a horses ass. lol

But I like your concept better. The fact that there's nothing romantic about it and slightly disturbing is why it's one of the most interesting pieces I've seen. This is definitely one that will brand itself into memory. Brilliant work! :clap:

I know that this is a mythological creature, but it gave me an idea when I saw it as a thumbnail. I also thought at first that it could have been something from Resident Evil. It's very interesting. I'd like to know if I could use this as a reference one day for a zombie role-playing game?
