Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-17
Sorrel Unicorn by ~Ethereal-Beings is a beautiful unicorn in a non-traditional color, notice how realistic the muscles and hair look and the way the photo brings everything together. ( Suggested by Nameda and Featured by Talty )

whys it so hard for people to believe that there was a horse with a horn. i mean through all the evolution and species on the planet over the millions and billions of years. to have a horse with a friggin horn on its head is not that hard to believe!

Did you brush paint this by any chance? If so...that's amazing. I couldn't get near that much detail, even airbrushing a model.

Yes I did brush paint this unicorn. I used an extender medium with acrylic paint to thin it and keep it from drying out too quickly, then I dry brushed and layered the lighter colors over a darker basecoat.

Wow. I wouldn't have thought of adding light colors over a dark base; that's an interesting technique.

8D this is Beautifully sculpted and painted!

I am also impressed by the photography... you have created the illusion of size ^^ I thought it was a real horse (dressed up as a unicorn)... from the thumbnail...

Is that real snow? or is it sugar or salt or something?... the trees look like they really are *there* in the background...

Yes the snow and trees are real. I took the photo in a thicket of small alder trees.

Okay, totally thought this was a real horse at first glance. Then I noticed the shinyness, and then the horn.
Finally, something I can add to my unicorn favorites folder! Haven't done that in ages.

Interesting take on the tail, by the way. Most people just make it a regular horse tail.

My unicorns are usually loosely based on heraldic unicorns which are sometimes depicted with a lion's tail.
