? 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"

 STORY:
"Few things are more tragic than a day meant for delight turned to sorrow. This Royal Unicorn had only just completed his coronation and become the leader of his herd when he was infected with the Rotten Plague.
Sadly, the joy of leadership was short lived. Soon after the flowery ceremony the herd was attacked by the Rott, and as leader he was called upon to defend them. The battle was brutal and bloody...but he saved his herd... at a great cost.
The garlands from his coronation ceremony have planted their plagued seeds into his flesh. The flowers grow but are wilting and forlorn, making him known as "The Rotten Royal of Decay"."

! 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.
