::The Last Unicorn:: -LineArt- by Valicetra ::The Last Unicorn:: -LineArt- by Valicetra
yay...just finished the book, and have always been a fan of the movie....so I've been working on this for a few days now...just finished the line art part...now i just have to figure out how i want to color it...

this mainly happened because i got some new inking pens and wanted to try them out...so heres my little experiment ^^

I really loved the book, it was a lot more dark and cynical than the movie and it was cool...

Damn, I will have to get my hands on the book. the movie has been a long time favourite of mine as a child. I also think this picture is quite unique compared to other "fan-arts" I have seen of such. I like it :)

The book is really good, and very different, a lot darker than the movie. As for the picture, I tried to stick to some more traditional concepts, and I stuck with the actual description of the Unicorn from the book.

I read this book long ago, and for some reason cannot find Peter S Beagle's other works.

it was fun having people stop me and ask why a large hairy thug was reading a story about a unicorn.

something about how you drew this makes me think JRR Tolkien, i think its in the style you draw the borders top and bottom, and Schmendric looks quite like a LOTR reject

its a rather interesting book though....rather dark, i like it...not the happy whimsical story you would expect...

ya, the cuff should work, as long as it is well pressed, it shouldn't look too odd, if anything it's just another little design feature..

and ya, school reading's keeping me hopping, but it hasn't gotten too bad yet, we'll see if my books have murdered me by thanksgiving^^;;
