Another old one revamped:

1.) Sharpened blurry edges
2.) Added detail to bare areas
3.) Darkened corners to shift focus onto subject
4.) General cleanup

This reminds me of the movie "The Last Unicorn".. One of my favorites as a kid. The way you draw the unicorn is really similar to the animation done in that movie... Well done!

I love your lean, sleek, almost reptile-like interpretation of the unicorn, but still keeping the feathers on the legs. All the lines are all wavy and beautiful and the colors are just gorgeous!

How did you color the background? That's beautiful! The unicorn is so delicate! (Or how to say it xD)

BJPentecost Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you. :)

I finished the background first and so it got the majority of the effort. Otherwise, I painted it the same way I painted the unicorn: simple shapes, block in lights and darks, blend, detail.

One thing i absolutly love about art like unicorns, is we all have our different ways of seeing them, some think they look so beautiful, and others say that they are not very polite creatures. That is about me, lets talk about this:

I love everything about the picture, the colors is what I love the most. All the colors are so bright and cheerful! This is a great picture.

Very nicely done, she is extremely majestic. I have a theory about unicorns though, unicorns were the only creatures that could defeat dragons (that is why they have that long horn) and once they had completed this task they had no other purpose, so died out from sorrow.
