Before you learn how to draw a Centaur, did you know?
A Centaur is a mythological creature that is half man and half horse. The head and upper body are human and the lower part of the body and legs are horse.
In earlier paintings, they are shown with only the back legs of a horse but over time Centaurs were changed. What we see now is the torso of a human which is joined around the waist area to the body of a horse around the area where the horse’s neck would begin.
Because of the half-human / half-horse makeup Centaurs have been categorized as liminal beings which are stuck between two different natures.
Centaurs originated in Ancient Greece and were said to have inhabited the region of Thessaly.
