Black Unicorn by Ironshod Black Unicorn by Ironshod
A big thank you to everyone who answered my Poll on what colour they think unicorns can be. [link] The result were very interesting and I really enjoyed reading the comments. I am painting a set of unicorn artworks, hence why I chose to paint a black one for some added variety.

~YTcyberpunk made a particulaly nice comment. She said "While unicorns should all be white, according to the mythology, I'd suggest this theory; most are white, a few are black. Think of them like pearls; white ones are rare enough, and black ones are rare among rare."

A black pearl, rarest of the rare was a great inspiration to me. I chose the mountain setting to put the unicorn away up high and apart from the rest of the world and did my best to make the body look like the shine from a black pearl. Thanks very much YTcyberpunk :)

I hope you like it.
EDIT: you can now see the full set...

This was stolen on howrse.com and submitted to the Creation Space. Very sorry. In the process of reporting it.
I'll note you the link once I find it. Very sorry such a beautiful piece of art was stolen. :(
