Another tricorn :D

The females have smaller horns that are placed lower, and they don't usually have a beard or as thick a mane or tail. They do have fluffy feet though ^^

I can't decide if this is to be Kohdaveyhl's sister or friend. I have a few more tricorns planned, to complete my little herd of sorts. I don't know why, but I'm really liking these guys now. Maybe my lanky, skinny tricorns are a desert kind and these can be the cold weather kind.

Ah, and I've got a story planned around this now. It will also involve dragons and pegasi  :D This is also the first time I've ever drawn a roan. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be! And, if you've never seen a real bay roan (um, not sure if that's proper terminology and all), you should *drool*

I forced myself to draw it completely in prismacolors again :) About four or five hours total on bristol board (love that stuff!)

This is a cool different take on the unicorn. Was sort of expecting the horns to look like a triceratops triangle. It is good that you didn’t do it that way.

:-) A. Thomason replies: "Thanks! Three is better than one XD Yeah, I’ve seen tricorns like that before, but it seems that would weigh their head down a lot. "
