2008-09-12 [Linn Scarlett]: I think the human-horse joint is the best location, sides, centaurs dont work anatomically to begin with :p it is absolutely impossible for a creature to have two chests because of the intestine balance and the amount of empty space versus stomach/lungs/
2008-09-12 [jaraden]: i think moira's ideas holds the best clought... for this creature to take flight it would need lift not only for the upper both lower torso aswell... mavouvering in the air would be an issue aswell and i think her idea also holds that solution.. plus it would look really cool! to address linn's comment, centaurs could be anatonically possible, with esception with the spine, the digestive organs would be housed in the lower torso while the humanoid would house the larger lunngs, heart, liver ect to sustain the enormous body, also the six limbs would obviously not be an issue, just look at the preying mantis, need i say more.. the problem only sits on the hind quarters, as they would be imbalanced in flight, but if the secondary wings were larger then those on the upper torso, flight might be possible.. the back and shoulder muscles would have to be abnormally developed but as i've studies anatomy relentlisely, and am very scrutinising in creations that are phsysically possible, i think it might actually work...
stil, i think the base image would be a fantstic one, well worth the effort..
sorry for the over analitical point of view, but i live for these kinds of trains of thought...
2008-09-12 [Lothuriel]: I think this conversation is making my brain hurt, lol...good ideas though.
2008-09-12 [moira hawthorne]: *passes loth a pill*
2008-09-12 [Lothuriel]: hehe...thanks, I'll need it
2008-09-12 [moira hawthorne]: goes better with a drink too... *passes loth some cheer*
2008-09-12 [jaraden]: sorry ABOUT THAT GUYS.. MY BRAIN IS ON OVERDRIVE TONIGHT. must be the boozy and apparently the caps key too... hmmmm...
sometimes i over analyse thing, but i think that's what can make our art credable, or maybe i just want to make fantasy credable.. i don't know.. i'm a little tipsy...
falls over.. and down the stair...
oppps there i go again!!!
2008-09-12 [Lothuriel]: No, really I was enjoying the conversation but then...as it always does...my brain kicked into high gear and started trying to over-analyze the issue. Don't feel bad, I'm stoned on cold meds right now..hehe
2008-09-12 [moira hawthorne]: oooooh yah cold meds and booze make a great combination! hehehehe
2008-09-12 [Lothuriel]: Heck, if I drank right now I'd be in a coma for sure.
2008-09-12 [jaraden]: wish i was in a coma... not.. it's a crutch for me though, i try and moake things fantastical believeable... with art, stories and comics... everything has to work as it were or else, how would they exsist... like for instance, how would a man fly without wings (ie: superman)... those are the kind of things i love to try and work out.. so fantastical creatures are a joy to do...
how geeky am i now.. huh!!!
take some of that
2008-09-12 [Lothuriel]: I feel your pain dude...
2008-09-12 [moira hawthorne]: oooooh than dont... we like you around
but the storys I could tell!
2008-09-12 [jaraden]: what???
what are we talking about...
*slips and falls over..*
nah i didn't..
but waht are we talking about... i was being clean minded for once.. so go with me on that moe for once please... i like figuring out HOW things would work in reality, like a dragon for example... don't turn my words, i don't have the brain power at the moment!!!
2008-09-13 [moira hawthorne]: rest your brain dude... comments get out of order some times... I was talkin about cold med and booze... kiddies dont try this at home... im a tra... no im not... just dont do as ive done!
2008-09-13 [jaraden]: good advice moira... i'll rest what brain i have left.. jst gotta finish up what i'm working on.. all sorts of new ideas poping into my idle brain... must put it down on paper before i go to bed... hmmmmmmm creatiity is so fun!!!
2008-09-13 [Daisy le Fleur]: Dood, gimme some of your energy lol
2008-09-13 [Linn Scarlett]: Gahh you guys made my brain hurt XD
2008-09-16 [jaraden]: it's all part of the creative process, trust me, my brain hurts even when i'm not thinking... i do so love trying to flex what little brain power i have these days... trying to pour it all into retyping up my book, but i love thinking and figuring out fantastical creatures!!!
still loving the art featured here!! magnificent, well worth a second look!!
2008-12-02 [Spirit Queen]: these are awesome maybe some day you can draw a fairy riding a Harley for me
