there’s that meme going around that asks “how long has x character been around and how have they changed?” WELL. It’s been exactly a year since I started drawing these centaurs (I know, right?) and so
I thought I’d share the first ever drawings of Rook with you guys ahahaha.
thank goodness I’ve gotten better at drawing since then wow
as you can see from the lower right I’ve wanted to break his legs since the beginning. I also didn’t have centaur proportions down at all ouch
things that have changed:
+ that stupid army brand on his shoulder
+ a heart. he was originally a cold-blooded killer (I mean, there’s still a bit of that, but.)
- generic bishounen face
+ some weight. a skinny underfed waif of a centaur isn’t going to be carrying anyone long distance or beating anybody up anytime soon
wolfyttwisted asked: How did centaurs impact the various big wars?
Well, there were certainly many more hoof-related injuries–-
(actually, that is true) In all seriousness, though, not overly much: cavalry has been slightly more important, but for the most part historically centaurs often kept away from human wars, and vice versa. Now that there are widespread integrated communities, it’s more common for them to fight together, but all in all centaurs are not so special that having them in an army drastically changes the outcome, or even the process of trying to kill as many people as possible.
