I kind of feel like this is cheating, since it’s a sketch for a project I’m developing for my other site. But I guess all’s fair in love, war, and blogging. Also, I had long since spent my lunch time drawing this by the time I remembered that today is Wednesday.
This is a Chinese unicorn. Or rather, an early/provisional draft of a Chinese unicorn.
I feel like this guy has it goin’ on, style-wise. But my attempt to render scales on his body is a flop. It looks like he’s wearing a fishnet body stocking. I also forgot to draw his mustache. So it’s back to the drawing board (kind of literally) for this fellow.
Related: if you had asked me a few years ago, I would have scoffed at the idea that I would one day spend this much time drawing unicorns. Like, how did my life get to the point where I draw unicorns on a daily basis?
Or a better question may be, why did it take so long for me to admit how much I like drawing unicorns? Because I seriously dig it. Whether I enjoy it ironically or not, I couldn’t even tell you. I just don’t know any more.
