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 ;_;

Wow, I love this new style so much! I feel always inspired by your works and this is quite near to my style (or better to say my ideas.. last two years I'm stuck in some creative vacuum).

The spare and graceful forms in this one, the watercolor style and palette, remind me of some of my favorite Alan Lee drawings ([[link] and [[link])

Wow I really like your non you style if that makes sense. I have always been a fan of your artwork, all the detail and color but this is so out of the box along with the pencil works and it is AMAZING

At first I read the title as bacon then looked at the thumbnail and was very confused. Then I looked at the title again and it all made sense
