Dots, dots and more dots. 100% dots as a matter of fact. Had so much fun with this one, though it took a while...I was on pins and needles to finish it though because I just couldn't wait to see the finished product. Still waiting, as I plan to pastel the background but the special pastels I ordered haven't arrived yet. So, new version to come soon. The unicorn came out a little darker than I would have liked, but that couldn't really be helped. When you use fine tipped markers in this way the ink is much more concentrated so therefore much darker than in normal use. Hope you like it. UPDATE: pastels arrived, will upload new verion as soon as able.
