About this creation
Category:"The 12 Signs of the Zodiac."

The required link to the MocOlympics 2013.


I decided to build Sagittarius, the centaur. I think he turned out all right. Everybody was building him with a bow, so I decided to make my centaur different, I made an armored centaur! He is armed with a round shield, and a short spear. HUGE thanks to MortalSwordsman for the leg design, I used that as a basic, and changed it to my liking.

The base was a last minute addition to the centaur, I have been wanting to build a waterfall for a long time, and finally got the chance!



Enjoy!








The waterfall. I added a gradual slope in the water, to get a more realistic feel










Best of luck everyone!


Soli Deo Gloria!

You've got rock and water down to a science. As for the Centaur, The horse half looks a little small. Better than what I could do though.

Once again, an excellent entry! Is the other NPU the horse tail?

The horse part seems to small, but other than that it's nice. -LB Jr.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Nice work. The centaur seems a tad emaciated and blocky though, and the use of rounded slopes would have helped with his organicness. Also, the landscape seems stark and foreboding, which when combined with the violently armed centaur is rather unbalanced. However, I really like the armour and the flesh showing through on the centaur's arm, brilliant detail.
Thanks for that critique LukeClarenceVan! Very helpful!

Brilliantly done with the head/helmet! Very nice sculpting, it looks just different enough from other centaurs I've seen- I think it's leaner and meaner!

Brilliant, just brilliant. The use of a red curved slope as a cape is stupendous.

Quoting Lando L. Jackson Well the thing is, Sagittarius is called 'the archer', for he is represented by a centaur welding a bow. This makes further sense, because 'Sagittarius' comes from the Latin word 'Sagitta', meaning arrow, so that is why everyone has been building him with a bow. Technicalities aside, this is a great creation!
Yes, I know that. I just wanted to have something different. But thanks!

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Lovely work Matthew. Thanks for the shout out, I am very pleased my centaur inspired this build. I especially like the waterfall and landscape.
Your very welcome! As soon as I saw this category, I remembered your centaur, and that inspired me.

Quoting George Marshall Very nice! I really like this, but it's sadly not as original anymore because this is the most common entry, and this may take off points in the judging. Either way, it looks great, and good luck!
Thanks! Yeah, I saw that there was a lot of centaurs, but since I was already building mine, and I didn't have tons of time, I stuck with it.
