    UNICORNS for JUNICORNS SWAP
    Unicorns are, with dragons, one of the most ancient fantasy creatures, and have a wide variety of appearance! From the lizard on the Ishtar Gates, to the donkey or oryx described by ancient latin and greek naturalists, in Eastern cultures they are a mix of deer, koi carp scales, tigers and more. Think to the large variety of images painted during all the Middle Age and Reinassence: they spaced from horse to deer, passing also throught those little lap-dog sized creatures!
    And the modern age showed us the elegant Amalthea by P. Beagle with the "Last Unicorn", or robotic and cyborg designs.
    With or without wings, naturally colored or full of colors, maybe they could also come frome the dark side of a fantasy realm... Don't limit your immagination: let your Muse free to inspire you and try to imagine your personal vision of a unicorn! They can be hidden just around you, gifting good luck and wellness, strenght and courage!

    No white background, please, even if "medieval" or araldic patterns can be ok, if they're made by you like the examples!

    Here some examples which can be an inspiration:

    I want to grab a spot before they are all gone, though I have never drawn a unicorn. This should be a learning experience!

    Hi!
    Questions?
    1) what is a junicorn?
    2) one of the examples has a white background, but the rules say "no white background." Where is the dividing line between too much white, and an ok amount of white?

    lurking...

    Hi there!
    Welcome between lurkers!

    Well, for answer:
    1. Junicorn is another version of Inktober, as Mermay is for mermaids drawn during May, Smaugust is for dragons during August, jumped out unicorns during June... I don't invented them, they jumped out here and there in Artists communities!

    2. Yes, You're right, the lion-unicorn has the white background cause it is made in black and white. I posted it mostly cause it is a different version or vision of unicorns, based on my language, italian, where unicorns are sometime also called "leocorns", (leo = latin for lion, cause in araldic they sometime have the lion tail, but this is only one possible explanation for the term). I'm for a colored background, maybe patterned as in the other examples, but no white backgrounds, if possible. A monochromatic one would be fine...

    Hope that will be helpfull! <3
