? WHAT IS #Junicorn2017 ?
For the month of June 2017 I created one of a kind unicorn drawings all month long! Its called #junicorn , a monthly themed challenge to celebrate and engage with the online fantasy art community. Specifically, I explored and expanded the lore of unicorns within my own IP, a magical world called "Terratoff"
"In Terratoff, unicorns are the only creatures immune to the "Rott". It is believed that their unique power lies within their magical horns.
They often linger around graveyards to guide mourning travelers to the graves of their loved ones. Even though their immunity only protects themselves, the unicorn's presence offers comfort and peace to the traveler.
Here awaits a young unicorn to guide a mourner to their destination."
! THE PROCESS !
This was a digital painting made with Photoshop CS5.5, Check out my process via my Terratoff Tumblr here:

In my world I'm building, Unicorns have such immense magical power that they have to wear these crowns around there necks to help augment and control that power (if they don't, predators can easily hunt them down since they can sense the power and use it to track them) The designs have specific meanings that indicate what family tree the unicorn hails from to prevent inbreeding. There is a special ceremony that the unicorns hold when a foal gets it's crown, you can read more about that in an upcoming piece ^^
The original idea was inspired by the crowns unicorns wear in classic heraldry.
