Just okay? My friend, if I'd done this myself I don't see how it could be any better.

Beautiful. It feels sad though, because she's leaving, and her forest isn't an eternal spring.

Another wonderful piece. My coworker commented that you used a lot of paint for it being a watercolor tho. But I reckon that's your style, isn't it ? It doesn't bother me much tho ;P do you use a fineliner?

Sorry for the late response. Yes, I used an ink pen to do the lines on this.

Very pretty and vibrant. You inked the outlines of the unicorn and the trees, right? Just wondering because I'm trying out watercolors for the first time and was curious as to how well ink showed up with this medium.

I love the book. The movie hardly does it justice, though I know a lot of people like the movie. It's just that it isn't the book by a long shot. :)

That's the way it tends to go with book-to-movies. I just tried to find the book, but there's not a single copy in our entire county's system. :(

I love the lines of the unicorn. She feels so whispy and windblown and delicate. :) Lovely image!

Thanks. :) It was sort of a painting experiment, which came out too flat (not enough desaturated colors for distance), but I did sort of like how the unicorn came out. Makes me want to retry something in this style.

And yes, I way heart Beagle. :)

This is GORGEOUS! I have no words for how awesome this piece is. The trees are beautiful, I looove silver birch and they're quite fitting here too. The Last Unicorn is one of my favourite books/films (it surprised me how faithful the film is to the book - gorgeous animation too :heart: ).

Oh...the Last Unicorn. When I was a little kid, I was such a dork I figured I'd grow up to be a unicorn. I practiced too.

:iconthe-starhorse:
The-Starhorse Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
*laughs* That's hilarious. How, pray tell, does one practice to be a unicorn? Did it involve attaching a dish towel to the back of your pants to serve as a tail? I found this most effective when I was being the fox from Fox and the Hound. And I was the fox. I wasn't pretending, mind you. (In my defense, I was also seven.)

No dish towel except on weekends. During the week, one learns to trot to school. I wasn't pretending either - I think I took the old "You can be whatever you want when you grow up" line a bit too seriously. In my defense, I was also around 6 or 7, but I meant business, let me tell you.
