This is a commissioned piece for the player of the character unicorn D'allan. I tried to make a portrait of the char. earlier, but now I had proper instructions how to do it.
D'allan is a very complicated character that had been played by it's creator for years in the net. I feel that I should explain what is going on in the picture, since it is filled with symbols:
The white creature is obviously D'allan himself and he is stepping into his own dream world, that only he can see. In there is his bird friend waiting for him. In the dream world everything is a bit twisted, the snakes in the branches are because of that. The real world on the contrary is portrayed as an inside of an old castle. There you can see D'allan's public self portrait, the dark unicorn, that is going towards the commanding hand of a dark wizard (my char.). The hand is holding a jewel that holds the unicorn's spirit and will inside. The blood stains on the floor come from the wound on the uni's front leg as he is walking. Even I don't know the exact meaning of those self caused wounds, to me they are signs of his despair in this awkward situation.
