A first prize commission for the "Two Worlds One Love" contest held by :iconunicorn-club: ,
This prize is for :iconleashe: who asked me to design a practical new unicorn breed.
This breed resides in northern Africa in the dense tropical forests. It is elusive and shy but its kick is one of the strongest of any unicorn close to its size.
Calves are born a deep brown and once full grown their pelts begin to fade to the adult patterning.
These unicorns are unique because of their long, keening cry they use when separated from their herd.
As for the breed name, I shall let Leashe come up with that ^^
I don't normally use this style, I actually put more effort into this style than my rough, paintery style. I find it does a better job of communicating form and motion, and its much neater too.
