Sorrow by Mentem-Cor Sorrow by Mentem-Cor
Lets try without water-mark for a one really watches me so I don't see why I would be really at risk of art theft...but lets see if I just shot myself in the foot...

Anyway. I had done this a few months ago, so not really recent, but it is recent enough.

Thank you for the wonderful comments!!! :love:

Very nicely done, I like both the expression and also the way you have colored it :)

Beautiful piece of art. I like the colour scheme almost as much as the delicate detailed lineart. The thing that touch me the most is the expression of the unicorn - it really makes me fell sad :D

Aw man, I love the expression of the unicorn, and the lifelike quality of its wrinkly nose! You did such a nice job focussing the composition on its face and the interaction between it and the butterfly. I also really like your line-work around the trees and the mane.

I'd watch the anatomy in the future, especially on the rear legs and tail, but I DO like the way you defined the muscles, even if they're not in quite the right place. The way you handled them compliments the sort of gnarly texture of the face. I like the stylistic touches of the swirly knees together with the curls in the hair.

If you're not already familiar with his work, you might want to check out Alphonse Mucha ([link]). :D I just say that because of your interest in bold lines and subtle shading and I think you'd like his technique, if not the subject matter.

Excellent work!

:blush: oh my gosh, I really didn't expect such a wonderful comment opening my messages this evening. Thank you so much for taking the time to type this--I had an unpleasant day, and even with the well appreciated critique, it made my day... And I do believe I have seen that artist before, and have really admired his work but had forgotten about him or at least that style. Thank you so much for the feedback, it is really appreciated :nod:

Love the expression and colours on this. Very, very nice, reminds me of Disney's 60s animation style.
