The Red Bull

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Long time, no upload! The Muse has been hiding pretty much all summer. God I hate summer... Well here's another scene from "The Last Unicorn"by Peter Beagle. The book, not the movie so this isn't fan-art... besides my picture hopefully doesn't look like the scenes or characters from the animated movie. Mmm hmm, I'm obsessed. So deal with it. And read the book. Anyway, here we have The Red Bull pursuing the unicorn... I've been thinking about how to draw the bull for quite a while (obviously he's not just any bull), and I finally figured, cross a bull with that other terrifying and ferocious beastie, a lion. It made sense in my head, anyway... I'd be pleased to know what people think and whether it worked. And as for the unicorn! For a long time I only had the thought pounding away that "unicorns are definitely not horses". So that took me nowhere on how the heck a unicorn runs... until I found a picture of an impala. I think it works ok... again, what do other people think? Oh, and this was done in watercolour, about 1 and a half times this size, and I've tinkered slightly with it in photoshop to darken it. I was hanging out all week to get home from school and paint it... stupid homework. Who needs calculus, anyway?
