A Unicorn of Greed by JakeNickleby A Unicorn of Greed by JakeNickleby
"She takes what she likes... and with it... the world goes dark".

Unicorns have been depicted as pure, innocent creatures. Like human children, unicorns do not know that the are creating a sin. Unicorns are drawn to the things they like, and so they take those things to keep for themselves. Little do these mystical beings know that their stealing will corrupt the universe around them.

This piece was done with a collaboration of mediums- the first part was drawing the image by hand with pencil. The next step was digitally copying the design with an inkjet computer copier onto cardstock paper. Sections of the images were then extracted with an x-acto knife, and colored with mostly watercolor paint, but also used some acrylic paint and colored pens. A separate piece of cardstock was used as a backdrop, colored with watercolor. A second layer of cardstock was glued to all sections and backdrop to eliminate curling of the paper caused by excess water and to reinforce the sturdiness of the overall piece. Final product scanned with an HP printer.
