UNICORNS ARE SO MAJESTIC

So, I took a play out of :iconfacerot:'s book on this one. I love his characters, they have messy hair and bad skin and cuts and crooked teeth and FLAWS. Hard to come by on a lot of characters.

I've been wanting for a long time to draw an ugly unicorn (or at least *another* ugly unicorn) so I did. I'm proud of myself for finally figuring out soft-shading with markers.

Dick Blick brand markers, prismacolor pencils, black fineliner pen.

Indeed he is. And friendly, too--in a way, it's quite inspiring to see art where something "ugly" and something "beautiful" like a butterfly can be such friends in such a peaceful way. :meow:

Considering the way it was portraied and discribed in medieval art and literature, the modern image of the unicorn as a white horse with a horn is a complete misinterpretation.
This horned animal with paired hooves and quite an aggressive behaviour was more likely a kind of wild goat, in my opinion. ^^;

According to the readings I've done, unicorns from around the world are based on anything from oxen to rhinos to goats to antelope to wild asses, but rarely ever an actual "white horse."

Apparently the earliest description comes from Greece, describing it as a wild ass with a red head, the feet of an ox and a horn that was white at the base, black at the middle and with a red tip. It was apparently impossible to tame or capture alive.

This is how I'd have pictured a unicorn anyway, as an unnatural mutant. It's really sympathetic and lovable in its imperfection :)

This was done with markers? I thought it was digital until I saw the category.

I love this. It' so bizarre but so irresistibly charming. It looks like a professional illustration with such clean lines and colours and the use of negative space. I adore the price simplicity of the place. Like someone else before me said, this wouldn't look out of place in a children's book.

And it's just so original! I adore how different this is from the conventional depiction of unicorns. Despite his ugliness, he's not grotesque. If anything, his ugliness makes him more engaging to look at. And the pose, expression and butterfly still make a cute picture! It's all so clever.

The detailed choices made in his design are so perfect. From the buck teeth to the wrinkled eye and wiry hair...I couldn't constructively critique this if I wanted to. I adore it far too much.

Oh, the icon! XD
