I've featured your fascinating illustration in a journal post where I list some Deviations that try to answer the questions of centaur anatomy.

There's certainly a lot of flexion in that pose. No wonder why it was necessary to work out all the internal anatomy before moving onward to surface anatomy. Wonderful attention to detail.

Thanks again. Yes, as a 3D modeler I find myself having to learn the anotomy of many different creatures inorder to produce a competent model.

This is very amazing :D But just one question, since the centaur has two chests (one horse and one human) does that mean he has two hearts ? :O

LOL, I've wondered the same thing. From the books I've read I've heard tell they have two stomachs which is logical. Being that they are part human their diet would consist of things that would give any equine digestive system a deathly case of colic so having two stomachs ensures complete digestion of any foods they eat. I've also read that they do have two sets of lungs which accounts for their encredible endurance and better chance of survival if they do take an arrow to the chest. As for the heart I've not read anything. But being that centaurs (at least the ones I've read about) are usualy bigger than normal horses they would also have larger hearts in the horse section. Equine hearts are built for endurance so maybe one heart would be enough for bothe portions. If their heart were in the horse portion it could be easily defended by the human half and leave the human part pretty much invincable when it comes to chest wounds. Overall a centaur would be a tough opponent to beat which is how I like to picture them. Having a hundred head cavalry of centaurs leading your army would make you nigh on unbeatable. :)

Pardon the lengthy reply but your comment got me thinking. :)
