Morning Arrival by AnnieMsson Morning Arrival by AnnieMsson
The other day I bought a new inking pen, one of those brush like types, and for testing it I made a quick unicorn.
Lately I've been sketching lot's of unicorns with lion tails, cloven hooves and stuff. I blame the Firebringer books. lol!

Maybe this is scrap material considering the lineart only took 5-10 minutes but since I just spent about 3-4 hours coloring it I think I'll keep it in my main gallery..for now at least. The sun/moon icon was made because the corner looked kind of empty to me, heh >_>

Might not be my best stuff but I hope you people enjoy anyway :D

This is a really neat idea, and the pose is pretty! I think it turned out great! The idea of cloven-hooved unicorns are growing on me, too, I must admit. I'm still debating on whether or not to use them for the fantasy story I have to finish before July 25th, though. But boy if this lovely piece of art hasn't influenced me further toward the lion-tailed, cloven-hooved type. <3

Thank you! When I read the Firebringer trilogy I always tend to draw this type of unicorns. They feel very traditional.
Good luck with your story :D

I love the concept of this one and I really really like the unique posing of the unicorn, you don't often see horse/pony or any animal really that isn't looking towards the viewer! Definately a Fav!

Thank you so much! :D When I do sketches it gives me more freedom in movements and posing. That's pretty nice once in a while but generally people(me included) like drawing the face of what they are working on so that might be the reason why characters usually end up facing the viewer. :D

Very very beautiful!! The colours are amazing and the lineart does not look like it was quickly done. :wow: It's a wonderful and very imaginative piece! :D

Thank you so much! Got to love that inking pen, inking drawings never been faster. I can't do things very detailed with it though since it makes pretty wide lines. Still, it's fun :heart: :love:

That...would make an utterly awesome wallpaper. Any chance of getting it with a less obtrusive watermark? It rocks!

AnnieMsson Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009
I am usually very careful with my art since somehow it has a habit of ending up stolen. I wish I didn't have too but watermarking is about the only thing I can do to protect it >_>
I'll consider making the watermark smaller though. Glad you like it! :love:

:icondwelian:
Dwelian Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009
I totally understand, and worry about the same things. It's been on my background for a day now, and the watermark's not so distracting after all! Thank you so much for sharing such a glorious piece of art!

I can just imagine so many things with this art. The unicorn bringing the day, and facing the night. Almost as if to say your time is done. It is my turn. Beautiful work.

Tack så mycket! Jag har nog gillat att rita så länge jag kan minnas faktiskt. När jag var liten så höll jag på mycket med hästar så det smittade ju av sig en hel del på pappret :giggle:

Well, technically, according to the legends, that's what they're supposed to look like!
You said a new inking pen, but it's listed as digital. So you did this on a tablet?
Reply
:iconanniemsson:
AnnieMsson Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2009
I always do my line art by hand and then scan them. All the colors are digital so that's why I post it in this category as there is no good one for mixed media.

Oh, really? That's pretty cool. You'll probably like my doodles and sketches then since they are more or less 'carefree' like this. Hmm, maybe I should scan more of that stuff...

My first thought was, 'Anne made this?' I couldn't believe you had made this piece. I thought someone else had. It's so different from your norm, but I love it. It's so fancy free feeling. Keep it up.

lol, thank you! My sketches are usually much more dynamic then my other finished pieces so that gives me more room to just let loose more which makes the style looks a little different. :D
