Hunting meetup (final)
Hello everybody, it seems that I'm just a bit late for this one, noticed that the challenge ended just as I finished my image. So I will post it anyway as I worked a bit on it.
This was an interesting subject and I got inspired by mongolian riders and some medieval festivals that i saw mainly in Italy, I think.The idea is that the centaurs live in a land similar to the mongolian relief, and they now have a peacefull and prosperous civilization. The rendez vous point is a simbolic gate between a large plateau and the lush forests of the mountains nearby. This "gate" celebrates the settlement of the centaurs in these forests(probably after a war with an enigmatic enemy or the conquest of some other people that inhabitetd the forests) and is the place for a festival in witch the centaurs keep the memory of their nomadic ancestors by a series of challanges that involve leaving for steppes and achieving a series of goals that rememorize expierinces of the life on the plateau. I tried to represent te start of these challenges.
Good luck to all.
