A unicorn under the stars and moon.

What I ended up being really happy with, that unfortunately you can't really fully appreciate in an on-screen reproduction, is the way the metallic powder integrated with the colors. The white in the sky was painted on top, so that has a flat tone, but at certain angles, the forest and trees glow with a golden texture.

It is such a truly successful job! So quiet and serene; the trees, the moon, the lights, the unicorn....everything is perfect! What a wonderful feeling it gave.
This picture and [link] are my favorite works of yours.
Do you consider to do more pictures like this? I will cry out happily if you do so ;_;

I love the luminescent light used in this piece, particularly with the unicorn.
