? 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 immune to the plague known as "The Rott". That is, so long as their magical horns remain intact. This poor Swift has undergone quite the transformation after becoming infected!
The plague rots the host from the inside out, and the mutations that manifest are a reflection of the creatures inner soul. It can twist the good into bad, and make the bad into an utter nightmare.
This Swift Unicorn was once the fastest in the land, but the Rott twisted it's pride into toxic vanity, causing the creature to sprout extra limbs. It took a while, but she learned to run again...even faster than before..."
! THE PROCESS !
My process includes several steps. First, the sketch is drawn softly with colored graphite to draft the idea. Then I "sculpt" cleaner lines with the under-color that I want to show through the final drawing. Then charcoal colored graphite is drawn on top to tighten and clean the drawing as well as add detail. The sketch remains intact and visible beneath the charcoal color of the final drawing.
This process captures not just the final illustration, but also preserves the method and experience of creating it.
