This piece is from my story (in development) "Terratoff", the lore inspired by the ballet "Swan Lake" ( 1877 libretto ).
Once there was a Terratoff unicorn who had suffered such a tragic and aching loss that his heart broke in two. Such a pure creature is not meant to experience such pain, and so he wept like no unicorn ever had. He cried shimmering tears for three full days and nights, creating an enchanted lake deep in the Terratoff woods. This lake was special and infused with a new type of magic, one of both purity and sorrow in equal measure.
Just as the last of his tears fell to the lake, two "Swans of the Crown" landed upon its waters, the White Swan Odette, and the Black swan Odile. Their feet splashed into the crystal clear water, and from their foreheads each grew a twisted unicorn horn! The moment the swans flew away, the magic of the lake vanished with them. Back to the palace they soared, from that day forth known as the only two "Swanicorns"MEDIA:Mixed media on Arches hot press watercolor paper - watercolor, ink, gouache, colored pencils, charcoal FIND OUT MORE ABOUT TERRATOFF & ENTER THE REALM HERE FACEBOOK TWITCH INSTAGRAM YOUTUBE TWITTER ETSY SHOP TUMBLR REDBUBBLE SHOP
