Telsa-5 by vandonovan Telsa-5 by vandonovan
Unicorns roam free on Telsa-5.

A quicky painting I did for my scifi/fantasy NaNoWriMo novel this year. Lots of things could be cleaned up and tweaked, but I've wasted enough time on it as it is. I should be writing, not painting.

::grin:: I always end up drawing stuff story related instead of actually working on the writing it down somehow! This came out so beautifully though, I adore purple colors and the backgrounds and everything here. And the unicorn is cute in a not completely typical unicorn way too <3.

Awww, thanks. I really want to try my hand at drawing or painting my principal cast too. I just haven't managed the time yet. But I like that I did this painting. It helped me think and visualize stuff. As for the unicorn, I so vastly prefer atypical unicorns. This one I largely based off a deer. :D I'd like to draw him again. XD

Don't hold your breath though, my list is very long and I'm not being very productive at the moment (although I am drawing a squirrel for my grandma's birthday right now).

Man, that's gorgeous, dude. I especially like the spires in the background. They really add that SFy feel.

Ahahaha, and ironically they were like, the most last minute of them all. But I like them too. I was like, "Yup, we definitely don't have THOSE on Earth. Not like that anyway." Thank you!

Thank you! :D I keep thinking about joining it, but ahahaha, I just haven't had the time/inspiration. Clearly I should have painted this with fall colors and knocked two birds with one stone.

But hey! Pinetrees are evergreen and this is an alien world. MAYBE IT IS FALL THERE! :P
