An unexpected meeting by SonPan An unexpected meeting by SonPan
Phew, finally finished this one... I had it lying around for about a week, ALMOST finished, but I couldn't get to it because of work and stuff.

Soo, yeah. I always liked unicorns. Classic unicorns, that is - not the horse-like creatures you usually see... which are nice too, but I prefer the slender and fragile woodland version. It's been years since I drew one, though! And I really enjoyed it.

Painting it was a challenge, and I'm mostly if not entirely happy with it. I would have liked to separate more the bushes in the foreground from the grass further back. But oh well.

Whatever, I better stop rambling and get back to work. Enjoy!

I also prefer the more doe-like version of the unicorns...basically the way Peter S. Beagle describes them.
Ahh, I wish they existed. -w-

Yesss, Peter S. Beagle really impacted my vision of unicorns forever. I want one. As a child I always pretended they existed. *-*

I like it! Somehow, it reminds me of The Last Unicorn.

Thank you! That's probably because the movie had a huge impact on me when I was a child. :)

You too? XD That and the animated form of the Hobbit were pretty formative for me. Needless to say, as soon as I was old enough I attacked the books.

God yes, I don't even know how many times I watched it. XD  I never got to watch the Hobbit movie (they didn't show it on tv and I certainly didn't know it existed), still haven't. But ah well, I've read the book. :D

The book of the Last Unicorn is also still one of my favorites of all time. I love all of Peter S. Beagle's books I've read so far, but The Last Unicorn holds a very special place in my heart. :)

I have yet to get my hands on his other books, unfortunately...

That said. You have placed rereading The Last Unicorn next on my reading list XD It has been a few years since I last read it, and it'll be interesting to see how it changes for me given a more mature perspective.

Well I enjoyed "A fine and private place" very much, so if you can get your hands on it, I recommend it. ^^
But for now have fun with The Last Unicorn! :D

You painters.
Why you gotta be so amazing?

Anyway, really good job, here :-)
The characters are all designed and the background is breathtaking!
I especially like that red squirrel in the front.

I agree about the type of unicorn thing too.
The more deer-like descriptions really do sound more, uh, magical, I guess ^^

XD  I like the way you say "you painters", like we're some sort of scheming organization (even the "we" feels wrong since there are so many different kinds of painters!). ;)

Anyway - thanks a lot, I'm happy that you like it that much! ^^
Yup, you're right, the deer-like version are indeed somehow more magical. Horses are amazingly beautiful creatures too but they are just so STRONG and (physically) powerful, and that has always sort of clashed with my idea of a unicorn. :)

Wait, so there isn't a covert conclave of creative conspirators conspiring conquest of the... uh, world?

So at first I was completely taken by how ADORABLE this is, and now I've moved on to flailing because there's a badger in it! Well done.

Nice. It also could make a good cover for a kids book, especially given the painting's characters and the unicorn's expression. :)

Yeah, that was pretty much the idea I had in mind - I painted it for my children's book illustration portfolio, after all. :)
