This might be a good opportunity to remind all the gentlemen out there that long wispy goatees greatly reduce one's attractiveness.

Haha, lose the chest hair and we'll talk.

Also, just as an anatomical point, his spine is bent far to suddenly. He must really be grinding his vertebrae.

Well, that observation probably applies to all centaurs.

But -- they're not real, after all.

Seeing the artwork proceed like that is kind of breathtaking --
hard to believe that in these days of photography some
folks still have the patience to learn those techniques
(though, of course, there are aesthetic effects you can
achieve that way that go beyond the simple representational
abilities of a camera). And with a computer paint program,
no less! Amazing. (I had fun playing with Mac Paint back
in 1984, but I certainly never produced anything beyond
what an untrained person could do with a can of spray
paint and no fear of making a permanent mess. ;->
And these days, I barely have enough fine motor control
left in my hands to write legibly.).

The liquid specular reflections in the right eye are lovely,
but the left eye got screwed up somehow -- it looks like
the eyes are crossed.

And yes, of course, he's very pretty, in a generic sort of
way.
