This is the first image in a series (Im planning on 3 in total) detailing an encounter between a Unicorn and a Dragon. The idea is to place mythical creatures into mundane settings (in this case, the natural cycle of life between the predator and prey.) I'd love to hear what you think.

there is lots of works in this pic and I like it some way
even if the unicorn does not look like the usual unicorn

hey I have a picture in the same theme and I would like to knew your thoughts on it

Well--maybe the Unicorn is a miniature? [lol]. This is a great scene, I really loved it.

The thing is though--with all the blur--I feel like the Dragon's tail should be somewhat blurred too.

Just a thought.

I love the background especially. Although most look for the action--I love the calm pleasant background as this mighty scene fits together! GREAT job. Keep it up--consider working for a company some day...

Ever hear of Ensemble Studios?

You make unicorns look like weaklings, who have no powers and are just food to dragons. Why don't you just call them horses with horns, so you won't disgrace the noble unicorn. Have soem respect for a symbol of good, will you?
About the cg, excellent work, I must say that in honesty, but I don't like what you dow with it.

:-) Eric Wadley replies: "I appreciate your honest opinion, and thank you for taking the time to post. I hope you had a chance to check out the other images in this series. You might find that this unicorn, although unorthodox, is far from a weakling..."

i dont care what all those other wierdos say unicorns in origional european folklore were actualy quite fierce, but when something that large is flying at you, YOU WILL RUN.
i hope to design games one day and when i play games it i critique them alot. my pet pive is when the proportions are good (and yours though not perfet are ecelent)but there is no texture (that is where you have reached perfection) i love how you got the rough scaly skin on the dragon. most game designers would just settle for a quic scaloped pattern but this reaches near life. the unicorn looks fussy. and the other pic where the unicorn is going invisible... it is the most perfect cgi i have ever seen. when i make games, i want them to be as beutifully realistic as these pictures. please, continue to make cgi like this.

:-) Eric Wadley replies: "Well thank you! I'm glad you like it. And good luck getting into the gaming industry, I have a few friends who work in it and it seems to be a tough but rewarding experience."

Wow all your pictures are awesome. I know it must be alot easier for you now that you've been at this stuff for a while, but how long does it usually take for a picture like this to make? I'm interested a little in cgi but fear it would take up a lot of my time.(which I don't have EVER!! Damn college!) Anyways good job!!

Hot damn!
Love the look; deff not the emphasis by most artist... and you get a very good feel for the movement... and is it me, or does the unicorn have a very confident look in his eye?
