Shattered Unicorn Dreams by TereseAntonsen Shattered Unicorn Dreams by TereseAntonsen
Decided to finish this one, I am not that pleased with the result, but I wasn't really clear about how it should be at the start, I just tried to mix the medias and see how it was.

Glass decor bits glued on to a tick carton (don't use too much glue, the carton bulges and it gets ugly :< trust me!) and had some glitter over the wet glue.

inked the unicorn and painted a base coat with acrylic, then tried some oil paint, before I finished with a soft B pencil for contrast.

76x70cm in size.

Beautiful! I love the way you drew it, with the deer head and lion tail, as it should be. :D

Cool! Is the clear stuff around the glitter the glue? If so, it's kind of cool it adds to the effect of being glittery and fairytale.

SO lovely! I'm quite happy when people draw unicorns with that kind of tail, they should never be depicted as just horses with horns. Beautiful!

This is gorgeous. I like how it is more of a true unicorn than the horse-creature usually depicted.

You've drawn a gorgeous creature. The shading, blending and anatomy look remarkable. The glitter designs are interesting though. It's a nice contrast from the crisp, clear unicorn.

Awesome! The blue shading is really beautiful, it goes well with the glitter you used.:D I love the way you portrayed the unicorn's anatomy too, it's nice to see a more deer-like unicorn.

I like it although am wondering what it has to do with deer as horses aren't related to deer other than they are both mammals.

The original unicorn was ment to be more deer like then horse like. I tried to make it look somewhat both. ^^,

It doesn't have much equine anatomy except for the ears.. looks more cervine to me. Cervine, very little equine and a bit of phantasy.. perfect unicorn mix :)

Beautiful. I adore this!
The tail and horn.
The angle of the face and tuffs of fur around the hooves and chest. Such a wonderful design. :meow:

I know you aren't impressed with it, but I actually like it; the fluffy, mane-esque chest and thin hair does it for me, and the tapered skull-shape. Kudos!

Looks like this particular unicorn has been a little hard-bitten in his life...
