mistwalker by drachenmagier mistwalker by drachenmagier
Just felt like finishing the dragon-y unicorn draft I did in the bus the other day. :D I HAD planned to use other colours than blue at first! I swear! But... well... I really like blue. It is relaxing to work with it.

Acrylics on A4 mixed media paper.

Vision : it's always very soft to the eye, that's your style, and you master it.
Originality : it's a tough one ! On one side, I'm so not impressed by unicorns...I'm a bit tired of them, to be truthfull. But on the other hand, you managed to make it very unique, aerian, and I really like the clouds and the wind running through it. The notion of a sky tail has nothing new, but it is brillantly done.
So, on originality, technically, as an idea/concept, it has nothing of original. It's the way it's done that makes it stand out, and gives it a lot of power.
Technique : no surprises. I like the way the clouds move with the tail. It would of been easier to make them straight, but it has more impact like that :)
Impact. It's a unicorn... but a good one.
What do you think?

Vision: I can really see the idea behind it and the colors chosen go so well with the theme of the art.
Originality: It's not the most original thing I've ever seen; it honestly reminds me a lot of Windigos from MLP: FiM. However, the idea of combing a unicorn (an older, more folk tale inspired unicorn) with a dragon and adding the wind element to it all? That's original. Unfortunately, the color scheme is not. Blue and purple are very common to use especially when it concerns unicorns and wind.
Technique: Your technique is really fantastic. Everything is blended nicely and the movement is very fluid.
Impact: This isn't a huge impact at first glance, but when you take the time to see the details of everything... Basically, it creates a bigger impact after time. Even on initial glance, though, the impact is still pretty strong solely because of your expert skills. Although, I think it would be stronger if you had gone with a different color scheme but still kept the wind theme.
(Perhaps not such an icy cloud color scheme, but a sunrise cloud color scheme? Using pinks, oranges, yellows, and a touch of blue.)

But like 1000 times cooler.

The lines are very soft, but it definitely add to the beauty. I love the white spots that contrast. It could have had more back ground, but overall very pleasing to the eye.

It's the reason why the cells for drunk people are pink in Switzerland (among some countries). :D NO idea if it's the same in other countries though.

Huh, well, when I think of green I think nature so I feel that's probably related? Haven't done research on it so y'know
