Specter by pallanoph Specter by pallanoph
So I took a little bit of time between the pile of sketch commissions/other projects to work on something for myself. The safest way to reintroduce myself to color beside quick watercolor work is colored pencils on colored paper, and I don't recall having worked with them on black paper before. This beast seemed like a fitting subject.

What is he? I can only tell you he isn't your ordinary unicorn. :lol: You'll have to suffer without a background for now, until I can think of something simple and fitting. (I keep thinking mist, but didn't want to ruin it as it stands now.) Suggestions are welcome, and encouraged.

Prismacolor and Caran d'Ache colored pencils on black Arches cover, 8"x14"

Art and concept April Schumacher. Please do not utilize. Thank you.

What a lovely beast! That skull head is wonderful. I'd hate to be on the business end of that horn and tusks! And how fluffy a hellbeast he is!

I would really like to feature this on the Tumblr blog chimericunicorns.tumblr.com, if that would be okay. If nothing else, can I drop a link to it?

Nope, I'm far too stressed and far too poor to do work for free, sorry.
