Hi again everyone, today this tutorial will be on how to draw a centaur. I love these mythological creatures; they are so mysterious and beautiful. I don’t know too much of the myth on centaurs but I can still tell you what I do know o.k. Let’s start off by where the myth of these beings came from shall we. For starters they did originate from Greece, so that means that centaurs are from Greek mythology, they where a race of creatures that had the appearance of both human and horse. From the head to waist right where the belly button starts and the hips begin, they are all human, but from the hips down they are all horse including the tail, hooves, body structure everything. Over time, they have been labeled as being liminal beings, which means that they are a form of a fantasy creature that has a combination of two beings existing in one physical form or body. Now the myth goes that centaurs where created when Lxion (the king of lapiths) mated with Nephele (the goddess of the clouds). There is another version as well on how these beings came about; the second would be that Centaurus, the son of Lxion, mated with Magnesian mares throughout the region. He did this because he was born deformed and felt that the mares where less judgmental of his appearance, and bred with them to form another race of creature. The story of these mythological creatures goes on and on, even the female centaurs have a name the Greek called them Kentaurides. In the Disney cartoon Fantasia there is a section where you see all different kinds of female centaurs roaming about without a care in the world. They all had different colors and had beautiful hair or manes. No matter if they are male or female I find centaurs to be a fascinating creature from the Greek folklore. This tutorial will teach you how to draw a female centaur step by step. The easy to read instructions provides detailed steps so you can be on your way to drawing your very own female centaur or Kentauride. I will see you next time people.

How To Draw A Female Centaur

how to draw a female centaur step 1

STEP 1.

Okay lets start off this first step by drawing out the guidelines and circle shapes. As you can see from the image above there is alot of circles. Starting at the top draw a circle for the head. From that head draw a straight line that turns into shoulders. Draw two smaller circles for the shoulders and two circles for the breast. Now moving onto the mid section of the centaur. Draw the larger circle in the middle first then two more circles one for each side. This is going to be for the butt end and the front leg shape. Under the centaurs body draw seven circles total for the legs and hooves. After you draw out all those shapes look at the image and draw out the lines that connect to them.

STEP 2.

In this step as you can see you will be drawing the outer frame of the female centaur. Starting at the top, draw the outlines for the neck, then you can go back and sketch in the face like the eyes, nose and mouth. Now outline the entire body of the creature as shown in the image above. It is very simple to do and before you leave this step make sure your sketch looks similar to the one above.

STEP 3.

Moving along to step three now. This is where you will be sketching out the shirt as well as detailing it and detailing and defining the front legs. Sketch in the details to the facial features like the eye lashes and eyebrows. Then sketch the bone structure in the neck and collar. Normally centaurs have no tops covering their top half of the body, but in case young kids come to this site I drew a top to cover her breast. After you detail the top you can go ahead and detail the front part of the legs and hands.

STEP 4.

This is the last step and what you are going to do here is detail the rest of the entire body by tweaking it up a little, and sketch in the hair and tail. Both the hair and tail should be long and beautiful. After you sketch that finishing touches in you can erase all those guidelines and circle shapes. Move to the next step.
