? 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:
"The Dark unicorn is the nocturnal unicorn species of Terratoff. They are known as mysterious and illusive creatures. 
This one unfortunately broke it's horn, losing its immunity to the plague of their world known as "The Rott". 
When the moon rises, he becomes a strange beast unlike any seen in this land before. Ferocious and bloodthirsty, this beast was nicknamed "The Were-icorn" by terrified humans who spotted it hunting prey in the shadows."

! 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.
