IT'S CHRISTMAS IN TERRATOFF!
So this holiday season I'll be sharing some very special winter tales of magic and sorrow from my paranormal fairy-tale world, Terratoff!

 STORY:
"Terratoff is a paranormal fairy tale world, filled with magical creatures and enchanted customs. 
There are tales of a hidden forest, a magical place where a celebration like no other occurs just once a year when the first snow falls.
The unicorns gather to feast on candied fruits and dance in the snow. The leader of this celebration is known as "The Sugarplum Unicorn", she wears a crown of plums and winter greens around her neck, and begins the celebration with a traditional festival dance under the stars. Although the night may be dark, the forest is dotted with sparkling lights glowing from hundreds of unicorns horns, lighting up with joy for the dance of "Sugarplum". "

! THE PROCESS !
My process includes several steps. First, the sketch is drawn softly with colored graphite to draft the idea. Next I add colored pencils to add dimension and define the lines. Lastly, charcoal colored graphite is drawn on top to tighten and clean the drawing as well as add detail. The colored sketch remains intact and subtly 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. This piece is also embellished with metallic watercolor.

Colored and Charcoal colored Graphite, & watercolor on Moleskine

This is incredibly charming!! Probably a silly question, but is there a single established Sugarplum Unicorn, or is a new one chosen each year for the celebration? The winter festivities sound wonderful!

Thank you!
That is not a silly question at all! I saw it as a title that one unicorn holds until it gets passed down to the next in line, probably when the original dies or becomes too elderly to prance about effectively. That could take a while since unicorns are immortal XD
