This was a really old lineart that I had planned on watercolouring, but now I got my copics I decided to colour it. It's a wee bit grainy because it's not normal paper but a sheet of canvas.


This was done for my sister


Artwork is (C) to me

fabulous form
colours and movement !
and i have a fond affection for kirin creatures

:-) Rasha Al Najjar replies: "Thank you so much! I like them a little more than I did, I feel they’re a little more earthy and powerful than the average unicorn"

This is absolutely beautiful. Kirins have always been one of my favorites, (and dragons, which is also very well done) and for the life of me I can’t draw either. 2

:-) Rasha Al Najjar replies: "I never really used to like them so much, but the more I think about it the more I do because as opposed to the normal unicorn look, they’re a lot more rugged and earthy and not so dainty, which I like"

Gorgeous movement : )

:-) Rasha Al Najjar replies: "Thanks a lot!"

Beautiful. Purely and utterly beautiful.
I take my hat off to you. (Gets up and bows, with an elaborate sweep of hat). You are really brilliant.

:-) Rasha Al Najjar replies: "Aw thank you so much! I hope it’s a top hat 1 I like those"

This really caught my eye, it’s lovely.

Love your version of the Kirin, especially the pose. It is very dynamic. I like the look of the ballpoint pen on the canvas, I’ve tried a few similar things in the past. Great job on the way you coloured the image as well. Even though it’s done with markers, it looks just as soft as watercolours. : )
