Truly the Last by War-Chant Truly the Last by War-Chant
:bulletpurple:Created in CS5 with Wacom Intuos4 tablet:bulletpurple:

My interpretation of what I think Peter S. Beagle's Unicorn looked like. As much as I loved the movie (before they edited the content for the DVD), the book will always be dear to my heart. It's one of the few books that I can read over and over again, and never get tired of it.

I wanted to try something soft and kinda "paintery" for the background, but it didn't turn out as dramatic as I had hoped. Of course, I'm admittedly not the best at backgrounds (though I am trying to improve), and I am my absolute worst critic when it comes to my work. :P

WOW THIS IS SO GOOD ouo
i love your take on this character :love: She's still very much recognizable with her swanlike neck, delicate legs, and long white horn, but your style shines through. :wow: i think the background is beautiful and adds a lot to the piece; i've always loved your backgrounds ;w;

Thank you very much! I can't even tell you how long I've been agonizing over that background. There's so much that I'm not happy about, but I've been thinking about doing another TLU piece to see if I can improve on the background. Not sure which scene that I want to do, though! :heart:

I love TLU novel, and I agree- I can read it over and over again without ever tiring of it <3

I love that it's not a cliche "happily ever after" tale. It's quite sad, but very beautiful.

Aw, thank you! I absolutely love The Last Unicorn book and movie. I recently discovered that there's a graphic novel version of it that I need to get my hands on. :giggle:

The movie is indeed very beautiful, I hope I can get my hands on the book someday, I'd really love to read it. I can't simply not stop staring at it's eye, good work there! Nothing is worse than when a creature's eyes looks "dead" when it comes to drawings. And I love the background, aswell with kinda much everything you produce in arts x):huggle:

Thank you! Really happy that you like it.

The book is an amazing read. There's a lot that they left out in the movie that I think should have been included, but the movie would have been a LOT longer...not that I would have minded. :XD:

Ahhhhhh this is gorgeous!! I really like the background, I kind of like that it is soft and blended and not as dramatic because it makes the unicorn look even more dramatic.

Yay! I'm glad you think so. I've been going back and forth on the background, and it's starting to grow on me.

Love, love, love this. So beautiful. I love the delicate lines you do!

Thanks, hun! For my lines, I use the round airbrush pen because it doesn't make the lines as harsh, and it has a better taper. I also use the airbrush and mixer brush to color/paint everything else. :D

Thanks! This is the first time that I've ever draw her...It didn't even occur to me that I hadn't until yesterday!
