Steely Steed by Agaave Steely Steed by Agaave
Here is my Thyella as a bizarre version of a carousel horse. This was supposed to be my entry for TheUnicornMasquerade's Three Colour Carousel Unicorn Contest where the idea was, like the title says, to draw a carousel unicorn with just three colors. However, I didn't like the flat colored version of this drawing so I ended up shading it and added a texture on the top of everything. Contest rules do not allow hues so this is just inspired by the contest theme, not an actual entry. ;)

Carousels. I remember when I take little kids on them and we would just talk. Everyone looked at us funny because it is so odd to see teenagers riding on unicorns while talking to the little kids we are suppose to be watching.

In my opinion we are never too old for a carousel ride. Giggle Nod

Thank you again! It was really pleasant surprise to see this comment flow of yours in my inbox! :excited: rvmp 
I wanted to give her a bit dragonic look and I will more likely to go even further to that direction when I develop her design more. ;)

Thanks a lot! :heart:
It was really fun to design the armor for the horse, I might have to make more of these... :giggle:

The background is done digitally, only horse is drawn traditionally. I have recently started to do textures from my photos and this background is one result of my experiments.
There is a link to this particular texture and my stock account in artists comments. ^^
I guess something like this could be achieved with markers or inks and alcohol, at least what I have seen from your works alcohol creates similar-ish patterns. :meow:
