gossamer shadow by hibbary gossamer shadow by hibbary
My last picture reminded me of a unicorn character I'd made up a looooooong time ago. I only made one picca of her because at the time my only uploading hang-out was the Lion King fanart archive and a unicorn is off-topic. But now that I live here I'd like to ressurect her, as it were.
So I found my own picture and touched it up a bit. The wierd thing about Gossamer Shadow (that's her name) is that instead of hair she has flowing semi-transparent cloth. And here she is.... flying through space!!!!! :D

pencil sketch and photoshop 7 (I forgot again. D'oh!)

Amazing! I love the cloth idea for her main, tail, and feathers! And the rainbows under her horn are a nice touch! :clap:

This looks incredible. I love the purple highlights on her body, and the mane and tail are so beautiful - they remind me also of the goldfish that were in Fantastia. The background is just stunning - not much more I can say about that!

Squirrel: Though I am fully aware that her original and wonderful mane and tail are made of cloth, I can't help but think a little of those wispy neat black goldfish from Fantasia, looking at this piece. Awesome charrie ^.^

The idea for cloth instead of a mane is very creative and original. Kudos to you on the coloring job as well. :)

Absolutely gorgeous. Although I gotta ask; did you intentionally makes its hooves cloven? Not that it takes anything away from the picture, I'm just used to seeing unicorns with normal one-toed horsey hooves ^^

Yeh, I did it on purpose. O.o;; I see 'em from time to time, with the more goatlike unis. Like, the ones with the lionesque tails and the beards and such. I thought it would be an interesting change of pace. ^_^

Wow, what a creative piece. Making the mane and tail cloth is really a great idea, truely unique. Your coloring is awesome, very smooth and accurate when it comes to the lighting. Love the rainbow effect, it adds a nice touch to the picture.

I really like the cloth-like hair. Before I read your comment, it reminded me a lot of a goldfish's fins. The rainbow from the horn is a great touch.

Your choice of colors really livens up the fact that Gossamer is in space. Very warm and rich! I like the fact that you're not just using the same old unicorn motif that's been used so many times. The veil-mane, tail, and feet are excellent.

simply beautiful, nothing else can be said. LOVE the fact that its clothlike material, instead of a main and tail.
Your imagination is truly a gift.
