The Last Unicorn by shmekldorf The Last Unicorn by shmekldorf
Tribute to one of my favorite movies of all time! I hope all you fans out there like it too! This was so much fun. I've never done so much glitter.
At first I was just searching on deviantart and I didn't see all that many tributes to the Red Bull so I just drew a sketch and then I decided to throw in the unicorn and it got so out of control!
Thanks to [link] for the lovely ornate frame they made avaliable!

Here is the process:[link]

Peter S. Beagle wrote the book and the movie is based off of that

Wow, what an amazing work of art you have here~!
This is truly epic.

For starters, I have never read the book or seen the movie, but after looking at this for a length of time, I can tell you I would want to go out to Borders or Barnes and Noble and pick up a copy. The way you portrayed it literally made me "judge a book by its cover" and for good reason.

Obviously, the central focus of the piece is the bull, and you made the bull turn out so well its amazing. The colors, combined with the pose and expression of the bull really give me a feeling of nervousness that he is charging right at me, and that is the kind of thing I expect to see when I look at a piece like this. Amazing job :)

Another thing worth noting is the background and border, both comprised of the horse and the intricate lace surrounding the whole work of art. It really feels appropriate, and very well fitting for the whole piece. I really feel this would make an amazing book cover, thinking it over in my head.

Overall, you capture an amazing image here, and definitely one that should not be looked over by any passing by artist.
Congrats on the completed piece, and I look forward to seeing your art in the future. :D
