2016 Unicorn Mechanik by JordanGreywolf 2016 Unicorn Mechanik by JordanGreywolf
The "Mechanik" {sic} reference here is an Iron Kingdoms one (i.e., that "mechaniks" work on magi-tech, usually in the form of giant stompy magi-tech robots, in the fantasy-steampunk world of Caen in the Warmachine/Hordes games).  In this case we've got a distinctly Khadoran flair ... although I've got no justification whatsoever for why in the world there would be an anthropomorphic unicorn existing in this universe, let alone why she'd be enlisted in the pseudo-Tsarist-Russian forces of Khador.  I was drawing something vaguely resembling a unicorn, and "Iron Kingdoms" was the theme of the day, and that's just how the sketch turned out.

This is another one of my New Year's Eve "last unicorn of the year" sketches -- this time from 2016 -- though this sketch has been floating around in my scrap papers for quite a while before I got around to scanning it.  (And I didn't even sign it properly with a year and date.  I'm mostly guessing at 2016 by process of elimination, since I've already accounted for the other years flanking the period where I tried my hand running "Iron Kingdoms" RPG, due to "popular demand" from my player group, since they were tired of all my Savage Worlds games, and wanted something "crunchier.")

I already know a truly wise man does not play leapfrog with a unicorn.
Perhaps that also extends to tap-dancing with one.

Well, that'd have to be a pretty small unicorn for me to be able to leap-frog over it well enough for the obvious threat to come into play in the first place.  (I.e., if there weren't that horn there, I think it'd still be a humiliating exercise for me regardless.)

As for tap-dancing ... hmm.  That's not usually an activity where I would want to be very close to another tap-dancer anyway (hooves, horn, or no), simply going by my observation that all the famous tap-dancers I can think of end up doing a lot of wild kicks and swings and so forth as part of the routine.  Well, and that I don't know HOW to tap-dance, so, again, just another recipe for humiliating failure.  ;)

Moreso if done in proximity to a unicorn.

Alas that I lack a tap-dancing unicorn with which we might test this theory!

Alas.  I believe in your conversion skills however and throw down the gauntlet.

Hey, I found a gauntlet lying on the floor here.  Is this yours?  ;)
