Wow! How you've improved It's so vivid, and beautiful.The background is as impressive as always, I especially love the grass. The lighting is very neat, it's almost spooky, and misty. Gives me chills.The anatomy is very impressive, and I can't really complain about this piece. However, I would suggest only a bit more shading on the neck of the unicorn. Then again, you may just be trying to make it look bright in contrast to the light. The only thing conflicting about this is the darkness of the imp on the same side. Though it may just be the unicorn. I particularly like the background, the dark hues make it rather mystical with the lighting. Like they're deep in a dying forest. Over all, exceptional piece of work here. What a marvelous improvement. :thumbsup:
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
49 out of 53 deviants thought this was fair.

First, I will say that this is VERY well done! The light that hits the webs is ever so splendid!

Although... the thing that makes me think about this picture is the unicorn, it's head needs to be more defined, as does it's neck, it seems a little blurred and not as storng and graceful as I know you could've made it.

The technique on the background is lovley, but like the unicron, it could have more definition to it.

This picture has a rather high impact, magic is somewhat dieng amoungst children and adults, it's horrible to see it all float away like a speckle of dust...

Well thats all I gotta' say for now ;), hope it comes in handy!

I would consider buying this if it were a print.

I would like you to listen to a song called The Moon Will Rise by Ghost Mice. It conveys much more eloquently than I could that, well, our magic can never die.

this one makes me want to cry! It's very well done. And I love the feel yet hate the sadness... :) I like when I can feel the sorrow from artwork.

I agree with Takenawayforever in that the unicorn's head could possibly have done with more definition but I must say, I think the background is just right the way it is... The whole thing is beautiful

I like this alot. Btw i wanted to say i admire your skills. I noticed your art from reading OFF-WHITE and i must say i am a big fan of the comic, as well as your art.
animetoonz Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
Makes me think of Pan's Labyrinth.
Very nice job. :)
free-smiling Featured By Owner May 23, 2011
I think the redo looks better than the old work. The light looks more magic and really like a forgotten world. I think its true that not just the farytails but also the phatasy itselfs is dieing. so keep up the great work with a lot of picutres wich improve the phantasy just by looking at them :)

This is very effective in its sorrow. I could feel it from the moment I looked at it. I think the hopeless expression left on the faun's face really says it all.
Tuckerscreator Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2011
From one angle, it looks like the horse's head is a dog head pointing to the right while horn sprouts out its cheek. Weird.

Still, very cool. Very cool picture.

To jest tak niesamowicie piękne i smutne zarazem, że aż brakuje mi słów by to opisać... Jednocześnie działa tak na wyobraźnie w ten sam sposób co najlepsze książki...

So very sadly true.

Interesting and unusual idea. Great colours. Well done!

this piece is absolutely beautiful! it's so true, and that's part of the reason why it makes me so sad :(
