Man, it's entirely too late for artist commentary. :p

Okay, the weed type Pokémon will only make sense if you've ever looked at the stats for the Oddish family. Weed Type Pokémon. They were asking for this. Why a Wigglytuff I don't know. I just hate them.

Crikit is Penny's most favorite pet of her mini zoo. I mean to design some gryphons for the Network, they're somewhat like horses in that they're almost all domestic and bred and trained selectively for work/show/play whatever. I won't pretend like I've laid down the rules for them just yet but rest assured there will be all cuts of them, from little playful things like Crikit to big damn bird-cats that can carry riders.

What I have designed to a decent degree are the first of my humanoid races, the centaurs. I have a small thesis on them I'll shove at you later about their origins, how they work, and how they fit into society today. As for Reece and Harriet, they're from Cornelius and Diana's side of the stories, that is they work at the capital. Harriet's in the centaur equivalent of her seventies and is a retired school teacher, Reece I don’t know as much about except that he's married with a kid and a kid on the way, the first of my characters to have children which is mindboggling for me.

My hypothesis is that if you like centaurs already you will probably not like mine. (But you wouldn't be watching me if you were looking for noble, beautiful fantasy races, now would you?) They wouldn't be caught dead prancing around in a state of nature (well, okay, there are hippies in all races) and are not all magically in their twenties with chiseled abs. Well. Except for Shad. Can't get much more chiseled than a statue, can you. Shad is an artist's representation of a centaur and he's the one bone I'll toss you if you're after big gorgeous classical centaurs, the rest will be made of real humans and real horses, thk u vry mch.

I love your centaur designs! One note though--Harriet's torso looks well past middle age, but her body looks young. As horses get older, their bodies degenerate as well. Usually this manifests as being hairier, getting a hay belly, or developing a swayback and pronounced withers (so kinda like a lot of humans, actually). Their fetlocks tend to drop as the tendons lose their springiness, and sometimes their lower legs lose definition as well from collection of fluid around the joints.

I would imagine centaurs would probably suffer from these things less, since they can be proactive about their health problems, but some of them (like the swayback) really aren't things you can prevent.

And now I am rambling about horses, sorry for the word vomit, I am excited about everything pertaining to the Network, goodnight!
Excellent feedback, thank you! I knew it was bad of me to not show her age in these doodles, I think I was struggling a bit getting down just the basic centaur form at the time. Awesome. I will keep these points in mind next time I draw her, thanks! :)
