The Last Unicorn by Starhorse The Last Unicorn by Starhorse
[EDIT] Changed the image a bit after our class critique. There's some improvements most notably in her face, her hair, and some overall texture work. Hope you don't mind the spamming, I couldn't stand to leave the older version up X)

*whew!* This is due tomorrow morning :) O'course, I have to do two interiors to go with it and get it printed and matted too, but that's a stress rant I won't go into further.

A project for my illustration class: design a book cover for a 'classic book'... I'm not exactly sure thirty years qualifies TLU as a classic, but my teacher and I are on pretty good terms, so I got it through :D

Anyway...lol, you should see the way the real media base for this tanked itself. I weep for the linework, but hey, if it hadn't have tanked, it never would've become digital now would it?

Anyway, PLEASE don't take this. I can't emphasize enough how utterly peeved I would be if a portfolio piece like this got stolen. So, sorry for the intense watermarking. *shrug*

Characters and story (C) Peter S. Beagle. And srsly, if you haven't read it YOU SHOULD. It's amazing. The movie doesn't count.

Wish this were the real cover. Can't something be done to make it so?

Dear Peter, I will buy your book AGAIN if you put this on the cover.

You're very welcome, it's only the truth. I love the style, the colors, it fits the elegant and tragical mood of the story so well. <3
