The Last Unicorn | Contemplating Solitude

$12.00$16.50

The Last Unicorn Poster is a piece done for the book, of the same name, by Peter S. Beagle. The Last Unicorn was also made into a movie in 1982, right around the day I was born. Maybe that is why I have such a strong connection to the story. In this fantasy book cover piece, I pulled from the very beginning of the story. The Last Unicorn in existence listens to a few hunters talk off in the distance. They, unknowingly, inform the majestic unicorn that she is the last of her kind and that she must remain safe. This sparks a wonderful, and sometimes scary, adventure where our heroine Unicorn searches for answers….

For The Last Unicorn Fantasy Book Cover Poster, I focused on composition and some interesting blown out lighting on our female Unicorn friend. Each cloud, mountain, hill points to her, almost as if she is the center of the universe. Then I utilized a curve in her positioning to round the eyes back into the piece, creating an intensity in that exact moment of time. I want this to feel like our Unicorn is really shocked and stopped in her tracks by the news heard from the hunters.

But, I want to keep the magic strong as well, for this art. So, I blow out the white hair of the mare, then utilize bounce lighting to get color splashing all over her. I then hide little flowers and splashes of color subtly around the piece,  to boost the magical feelings. In the end, I really love the way The Last Unicorn Poster takes us into that exact moment of discovery, and begin our journey, alongside the Unicorn, towards untold mystery. Pick you up today and get drawn magically, into your own new adventure of discovery!
