unicorn by Paleona unicorn by Paleona
Besides dinosaurs (and later, pokemon, of course), one of my big childhood loves are unicorns!  So many of my favorite things revolved around these beautiful creatures: one of my favorite stuffed animals, Moonbeam, The Last Unicorn film, G1 MLP toys, Whisper the Winged Unicorn books, and various other storybooks, stickers and miscellaneous items.  Have any of you ever made a wish with a dandelion puff?  Well, I used to wish for a unicorn, lol.

Anyway, at first I thought of drawing a scene involving a shiny Rapidash, but I've really been in the mood to draw my own unicorn, so there you have it.  My equine anatomy isn't the greatest, but I really tried to get her looking alright.  Hope you all like her!


Thanks for looking!


Drawn in PSE 7.

Thank you!  Yes, the flowers are meant to be foxgloves! <3  I kept them pretty loose, but that's really awesome that you noticed what they are. : )

Thank you very much!!  Going in to this one, I knew I wanted a focus on purples, pinks and teals. : )  The yellow bits were decided on later to balance out all the cool colors.  

I'm really glad you like these colors; I'm really enjoying not relying on textures and many overlay layers to get my desired colors.  The only color adjustments used here was a bit of contrast tweaking at the very end~

Also, I love the subtle rainbow colours (red and yellow and blue) in the grass and shadows! ^q^ )

Thank you, oni!!  I felt a little guilty drawing this one instead of your Seine, since it's been on my to-do list for a while, haha.
But yes!  The rainbow colors are mixed throughout everything to keep the colors consistent~ :')

There's this certain place in a park I frequent; one time I told my littlest sister that that place is a secret place where unicorns occasionally visit. She was really young and actually bought it. ^^

If you are doing fantasy creatures, you should draw a griffin, they are so majestic! Plus, you really get body proportions of things other than pokemon really well!

Griffins are really lovely!  Unfortunately, I usually associate them with the Alliance from World of Warcraft, the enemy opposite faction of the one I always played back in the day, hahah.

Thank you, though!  It's nice to show people that I am capable of drawing things other than pokemon, haha.

If you ever read the Serendipity books as a child, Morgan Morning was one of my favorite unicorns... alongside MLP and The Last Unicorn, of course. :) (Smile)

Yes, I did read the Serendipity books!  I definitely remember having a couple of the Morgan books, particularly "Morgan and Me".  The artwork is really lovely in that entire series. <3

To be honest unicorns are a bit indiferent for me. But if you keep doing them that way surely more and more people will start liking them, because this drawing here is just too pretty! ; w;
