SAGITTARIUS - THE CENTAUR 2 by wingdthing SAGITTARIUS - THE CENTAUR 2 by wingdthing
New sculpt for the week of 12/1/09. One of a kind polymer clay fantasy sculpture by Nicole West.

I did a zodiac series a few years ago, but always wanted to revisit several of the signs to do them a different way. This is the first and I'm so surprised at what I captured in her. I hope you enjoy.

Absolutely gorgeous. I love seeing artwork of mythical creatures because the anatomy is sort of up in the air, especially with centaurs. It's great to see different interpretations of how a human and horse's bodies meld together and still look realistic.

I love how you did this (:
Especially the shape of her stomach!
Beautiful job<3

Thank you so much, because it was no easy feat! I'm really wanting to do a highly stylized, cartoony looking one sometime in the future. Would be so fun to play with exaggeration. ;)

Thank you! I have a couple more ideas that surfaced while creating her. It's not easy getting the proportions down when combining two species!

now thats a cool idea, making a zodiac series. beautiful face and expression.

pity she misses the arrow. is what makes a sagittarius-> a sagittarius.

if i might suggest: u should fit the face expression/body stance fitting to the character, that those signs are said to be.
so for sagi this anxious expression isnt fitting, as they are self confident (almost arrogant) and with much energy.

so looking forward to ur next sign. much nice.

Thank you! I had already done a zodiac series a couple years ago, which you can see if you go to my gallery site. I matched all the attributes with the signs that time. This time it's just a loose play on the idea. I'm not following it that closely. Besides, we all get startled or surprised, don't we? ;)

p.s. I almost included an arrow, having it hit the ground in front of her as if she was being hunted.

Woah.. that is just stunning. I love your work, but this is just spectacular. Would love to see more fantasy hybrid creatures, if this and your mermaids are anything to go by they will all be astounding...

Once again stunning
