Moonlight Unicorn by Ironshod Moonlight Unicorn by Ironshod
This is the first of a set of new unicorn artworks that I am working on. The colours are quite simple but I hope convey a feeling of magic and mystery to this scene :)

Unicorns are loverly creatures, very magical. I enjoyed painting this one. Before I started I got several books with horse reference photos to study. It is not like painting a dragon where if the wings are a bit big or the neck is a bit long it is no problem. The unicorn is based on the real creature of the horse, and so the anatomy has to be right or it looks wrong.

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

funny how you call all these designs your art seeing as the original artist is Anne Stokes (my boss) designed these, shame on you, maybe you should try and design your own artwork and not bum of the glory of professionals, people like you make me sick to my stomach. you are a true definition of a fiend.

P.S im reporting you

I can't stop looking at this, it's too beautiful for words. Can I ask you a question? Do you sell your work in shops in Northern England anywhere? Only I swear I almost bought this in Whitby last year, but I had no change so I couldn't! Forgive me if I'm mistaken.
