Unicorns are amongst the most mysterious of all fantasy creatures – but it is well worth taking the time to stay still and quiet enough to catch a glimpse of one – let’s take a closer look.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a curved, angled “teardrop” shape on the left side of your page.
Add a curved line to the center of this…
And then add a wavy line to the right.
Add another wavy line below this, and join these at the end with a point.
Now, add another curved line to the bottom of this.
Bring a line down from the point at the end, and bring this down towards the bottom of the page.
Now, add another line to the side of this, creating a point at the bottom.
Add a pointed shape to the top right, and add a curved line in the center of this.
Connect the top of this to the right with a curved line, and add another curve to the bottom.
Now, extend the line on the right down slightly.
Take this to a point, and then curve it back up…
And add another layer below this.
Add another layer below this – do you see the unicorn’s mane starting to take shape?
Add a curved line to the face for an eye, and add curved lashes to the top. Then, add a curve to the mouth, and a small oval shape for the nose.
Use a curved line to connect the bottom of the jaw with the top of the mane.
Grab a gray pencil, and draw two small stars to the left of the unicorn.
Use the black pen to add a pointed horn to the top of the head, and add diagonal lines across this…
Add another gray star to the left of the horn.
Grab an eraser and erase the stars, but leave their pale shapes.
And go over the outlines of the stars with a black pen. Use the eraser to remove the pencil marks.
Use a red pen for the stars and the horn…
And then add a deep purple to the top of the forelock, and a lighter purple below.
Follow this with a dark blue pen behind, and a lighter blue underneath.
Use a bright blue pen to add color beneath this…
And then use a green pen for the section behind this.
Add another shade of color with a yellow pen.
Use an orange pen to add color to the next section…
And a red pen for the layer behind this.
Then, use a brown pen to add color to the bottom of the mane.
Use a pink pen to add color inside the ear.
And there we have it – your very own stunning unicorn, just waiting for a cute name and an adventure to go on – can you oblige?
