I wish I knew how you were able to use GIMP this well , its amazing. I dont think Ive seen any painting this good done with GIMP . Michelle Tolo
replies: "Wow, thank you! Well, I’m using a wacom-tablet for all my digital pictures, of course. I think Photoshop is overestimated; don’t get me wrong, it’s a great program, but many other programs can do just as well - like GIMP .
Basically, I just paint the main subject of the picture in gray-shades, before adding details like mane and the horn in new layers. Then I create a new layer that I lay over the other layers, and colour it. Background and lighting-effects are added in the end. That’s how I do it!"

I like PC painting , I use a free paint program called Artweaver and then I also use GIMP , but Im nothing close to as good as you Michelle Tolo
replies: "Yeah, painting pictures digitally is quite fun once you get the hang of it. Though I haven’t seen your pictures yet, I’m sure you can do whatever you want to do! ^u^"

I really like it, but where’s the ears? Michelle Tolo
replies: "Hehe, glad you like it! It seems like a lot of people don’t get the ear-thing: they are there, they’re just behind the mane/bangs. It does look a little weird, though... I should fix that some day... In a century or so, hehe! "

gorgeous! I really love the idea of the ridged horn, rather than the usual smooth horn - and the colours are so luminous, really like he is glowing with an inner magic.
Did you use a tablet? It’s just, i am looking to get one, and i’m always looking for tips and advice! Michelle Tolo
replies: "Thank you very much!
Yes, I used my Wacom tablet for this one . I really recommend you to get one if you’re into digital art; it takes a little time to get used to, but after that you won’t understand how you could live without it ."

omg! i love the beautiful color! and i wish i could get Corel Painter 3 to work with me so i could draw just as beautiful! what brush do u use on ur painter program? i can’t EVER figure the brush out! lol
EEEKKKKKEEEEKKKK!! i love the eye! it’s so clear and cool and and and i can’t describe it but it’s amazing! Michelle Tolo
replies: "Thank you!
I didn’t use any fancy brushes at all for this painting - just simple round brushed in different sizes and intensity. I’m not an experienced digital painter, I’m afraid ."

It looks great, even without the ears. (I didn’t even notice they were missing until I read the description.) This is beautiful, very well done!
The unicorn stares at me, its eyes glowing aquamarine
Its pale blue mane shining alabaster in the moonlight
Stars twinkling in the midnight sky,
Fireflies blinking on and off in the forest, floating pinpoints of light
Its coat the color of lavender in the moonbeam it stands in
Not moving, just watching, as I gaze back at it
It glows with its own magic, illuminating the atmosphere around it
The spiral of its horn like a sign of majestic power
Staring, staring at me
Hope you like it! Michelle Tolo
replies: "Those ears are hiding very well
And thank you so much for the magical poem!"

Beautiful. I always picture my unicorns with a slightly curved horn. By the way. . .is that a beard? Michelle Tolo
replies: "Thank you! Yup, it is a beard, though it doesn’t really look like it is connected to the unicorn’s jaw XD"
