Star Wave Unicorn by rachaelm5 Star Wave Unicorn by rachaelm5

Winged unicorn.  Horned Pegasus.  Alicorn.  Unasis.  Pegacorn.  UNIPEGASUSACORN!  Whatever you prefer to call these guys, it's a super-sparkle magical horse with wings and a horn.  :D

I actually tried out some new colored pencils with this one - they're called Caran d'Ache, and they come from Switzerland.  They are.  Um.  AWESOME.  I can honestly say that I am not sure whether I like Carans or Prismacolors better right now.  They can handle my mush-it-together technique, as well as a light, layered technique.  The leads are more consistent than Prismas, and they keep a point a lot better.  The downside?  They're twice as expensive as most of the other colored pencils out there.  I am beginning to think the Carans may be worth it, though.  The results (and the way they feel during coloring process) are wonderful.

So!  This is Caran d'Ache pencils on cold-pressed illustration board.  I also included a Gilson turquoise stone (it's an imitation stone), and assorted shiny bits.


Original art: sold.

Matted Prints:

5x7 inches for $10

The Caran d'Ache really are fantastic, but the price may give you pause.  They're about twice as expensive as most of the other brands out there.  I think they're worth the extra money, though; they're wonderful to use and they give excellent results!  I found mine in the Dick Blick online catalogue.

Thanks!

It wasn't too bad, actually; the picture is quite small at about 5x6 inches.  It took four hours or so to color.  :-)

You´re welcome :)

I see, it took me about 1-3 Hours to completely finish a Drawing from Sketch to Color.
