Birthday Presents

It’s very nearly my birthday, so now is the perfect time to show you one of the presents I got last year.

Any unicorn is a winner gift for me, and one that came with rainbow pens? Even more awesome! I swatched them on the back of the canvas, to make sure they’d work. You’d think they would, since they came with the kit, but you can never be too sure.

And then I just started colouring. I didn’t really have a plan. Just filling up the spaces in the background without having two sections next to each other be the same colour.

As you can see, I also coloured his mane in the neon rainbow. But I didn’t want to do the unicorn’s body that way. Partly because it would all just blend and not stand out, and partly because the pens were practically empty.

So I went with metallics instead. And doesn’t he look gorgeous?
