You never let me down. You art is just always so amazing, beautiful, unique and well made.
That alicorn is so beautiful. I especially like its huge wings.
Also, all the round decorations on clouds, wings, castle, etc. makes this pic so soft looking and atmospheric.
The sun and orange sky gives also that atmosphere of downgoing sun. Beautiful!

Very pretty :)
The castle in the clouds reminds me a bit of how I imagined Tir-na Ng'th in "The Amber Chronicles".

It's beautiful, and what a coincidence, my next story I'm writing deals with unicorns. :aww:

TrollGirl Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
I wonder how one deals with a unicorn. Seeing as it's a great brute with a sharp horn, probably needs some radical handling.

Rose74 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Student Writer
Yeah, it's true, according to most mythologies, unicorns are actually very wild and brutal. They would sooner rip you to pieces than let you touch them. ^^; But no worries, I think I might tame them just a little in my story. :thanks:

Rose74 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Student Writer
Oh yes, I read that too, only virgins can approach unicorns, but even that can be dangerous, as women often posed as virgins are are killed according to mythology. As for me, well, let's just say could, but I'd still be careful. :blush:

A beautiful piece! The style would not be out of place as either a window or tapestry in Canterlot Castle.

Those colors are *wonderful*, and I love the way that you used light linework against darker colors. It gives a wholly different feel to the piece. Lighter and fluffier. But I mean that in a good way. ;p This is excellent work. Best of luck to you in the contest!

Love how just because it's an alicorn in the picture, people think it's mlp art :iconfacepalmplz:

It looks stunning btw. Love the colors and the style, looks really good with the much lighter lines <3

Could be mlp, could be not. Mlp is doing a good job in inspiring people and cheering them up.

Yeah true, I just find it a bit annoying that you cant really draw any mythological equine, such as unicorn, pegasus and in this case alicorn, without people thinking of mlp :/

I don't have a particular problem with that, but you can point out in the description your artwork is not mlp-related =]

CajesTheTabby Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Well I dont mean that I've had that problem, I've just seen it happen on some pics. And it feels like Mlp is prying it's way into everything on da :S

Fandoms come and go. It can be ponies, dr who, homestuck, disney stuff...that's how it goes on a site populated mostly by children, they're fad-prone. I guess we should do our best to enjoy our stay =]

I know, sorry if I sound like a complaining kid. I've just had my fair share of mlp drama. Guess it's rubbed me the wrong way.
