Forest Guardian Picture

I enjoy a lot of mythology, particularly Greek but Norse as well. The other day I really felt like having a go at drawing centaurs. I found it quite challenging and even after many sketches of horses from references as I tried to gauge the anatomy, I still find it quite difficult to get the proportions down.

Anyway, here is my first completed centaur drawing and I imagine him to be some kind of guardian, patrolling the forest in the night.

I played around a little with the lighting of the lamp but pretty much failed with the background. An area I really need to work on in the future.

Anyway, let me know what you think
