Unicorn in oils :)

A long-maned unicorn foal..or yearling..or whatever x)

First the sketc, then the ground paint, and then the finished piece :) Took about 2.5 hours.

Oils are both easier and harder thab photoshop..I definetly need more practice, and patiense, but i's way easier to get a nice texture and look to it...
I'm half-happy with this piece. It's a bit boring.. maybe I could add more light when it's dry.. conformation and so on isn't great either. I've added blure and red in the shadows to get them deeper, but not goos enough..
It'll do to hang above my bed at least :)

Wow, that's awesome!

Thanks :)

It's my first oil-painting of a horse with the whole body in it. And I've only done one or perhaps two acrylic paintings with the full body..
Maybe 10 paintings all-in-all, both oil and acrylic counted.. soI have room for more practice :P

The head seems a little out of proportion to the body, but only after you added the mane. Wonder why that is...

That's beautiful! Thanks for sharing the pictures from BEFORE it was finished, lol. Interesting to see how it all comes together.
The head does look a little big, though, but I think it might just be an issue of colors and contrasting. In the end, it looks really great!

Wow! That's SO good! I can't paint to save my life . . . But I can draw . . . Kinda :) lol. The mane and tail look amazing.

Thanks! :)

The head is a bit big. Think of it as a foal and it'll be alright x)

I think I'll add more light and so on tomorrow.. just might see what I can do about the head too.
