The Last Last Unicorn Cover





Hello!

Here's the sixth and final Last Unicorn cover I did for IDW's 2010 series based on Peter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn. I've included images of my initial comp, the sketch, and the final drawing, made with india ink & gouache. Bonus points if you know where the Prince's pose came from.

Lovely work!
Is the pose derived from Vader in episode 3, after be defeated by Obi?

Frank said...

Thanks, Steve. No, it's not based on that, but I will have to revisit and see what it looks like.

The pose kind of looks like Jesus in Michelangelo's Pieta...

The pose is from a painting with Ivan the Terrible, where he holds the son he has just smitten.
