Unicorns by Ahyicodae Unicorns by Ahyicodae
*******Update*************

Added another unicorn, this one in the classic style of old tapestries, here: [link]

**************************

Thought I would try something different for this piece. :) Most of my photomanips end up looking almost like digital paintings or 3D renderings. I wanted to try to make a scene of fantasy creatures that looks *real*.

The scene is inspired by the film The Last Unicorn, which was one of my favorites when I was a child. I had this photograph of the waves, and was trying to decide what sort of creature to put in it and unicorns popped into my head. If you've seen the film you know why.

Special thanks to all the stock photographers who lend their work to this!

Leaping unicorn: Lucky by :iconcineh:

Standing unicorn (base): ArabTailPose by :iconmoonfeather:

Standing unicorn (high res image overlap): Stock 55 by :iconcold-storage-stock:

Standing unicorn (head): Horse-Series-Stock3 by :icontefee-stock:


Ankle fur: Horse34: Gypsy by :iconcyborgsuzystock:

Also a big thanks to Equine-resource for their huge gallery (in which I found several of the above stock images), and to other artists whose photos I didn't use but who were kind enough to offer permission. This isn't a complete list (I got the narwhal horns from some web search and I think I used some lion tails, heavily manipulated... possibly a few other random things), but this is most of it. The wave background is mine.

Thanks once again to these wonderful photographers. If I've messed up any links please let me know; there was a lot to include!

wonderful job here. :) quite amazing. Having seen the Last Unicorn I understand why the tails are fashioned after a cow's tail not a horse's. but other than that small detail by fault of the movie this is absolutely beautiful. :)
