Also a gift.....  the mother of my friend wishes a unicorn.  I want a mystical atmosphere so I paint this tiny fairies around the unicorn.

Thanks! For all paintings I use acrylic paint. Also for spraying. But for spraying you need thin fluid. Most things you can spray freehand. But if you need sharp edges you have to take film or lose stencils for covering the parts you don’t want to spray.

Wow, I love this! It’s misty, but it reall goes with the picture. Too beautiful to describe! What did you use to do this piece? Gosh I wish I could do that...I really like the unicorn’s tail. Isn’t the unicorn mystical enough? I mean, not to be rude, but you said you wanted a mystical atmosphere, but isn’t a unicorn mystical enough? I don’t care though, amazing work!

Oh what did I use.... a water colour sponge for the leaves and the structure of the boles. A brush for all the little fairies and the gras. And to colour the unicorn, the boles and the mist I used an airbrush gun.
Hope that helps a little to answer your question.

Ooh this is pretty! This is one of the best unicorns I’ve seen on Elfwood, and that’s saying a lot. The fairies are pretty good, too.

I like the fairy-talish atmosphere in this one, the vague lighting, the sparkles, the little fairies. Nice work.

It is beautiful and the fairies are charming, but I don’t seem to see his left front leg properly. Looks like there is a hint of the leg under the rib cage - but looks like the chest ends without a leg. Sorry, I’m probably not looking right. No one else said anything about it so its prob. just me.

Sorry I must write this in german.......
Da muß ich dich leider enttäuschen Tamar Beecher. Hier wird weder ein Original angepriesen noch veräußert. Das Urheberrecht des Hintergrundes liegt ganz bei mir auch wenn ich nach dem Wusch des Beschenkten als Vorlage das Einhorn von Susan Dawe genutzt wurde. Ich kann mich nicht erinnern, daß ihr Einhorn blau ist, so eine lange Mähne hat oder mit Feen bestückt ist. Ähnlichkeiten von Wäldern lassen sich oft nicht vermeiden. Da ich weder Einkünfte für das Bild erziele noch sonstige Gelder zu Werbezwecke fließen kann ich getrost solche Werke nutzen und sind somit weder ein Raub des geistigen Eigentums noch illegal. Die gleichen dummen Diskusionen hatte ich schon etliche male mit meinem Darth Vader. Aber auch hier habe ich das Recht dieses Bild zu nutzen. Dieses habe ich sogar schriftlich. Wenn es irgendwem glücklicher macht reiche ich so ein Schriftstück gerne nach.

This is soooo beautiful and magical, it is flowing and perfect. Thank you, the face of this beautiful creature is so innocent and soul touching.
