You can’t even imagine how long I sat at this unicorn Zentangle drawing. I had the idea myself years ago, but I didn’t turn it into reality until the beginning of last year. When I came back from Iceland, I finally had the time to work on the idea. The unicorn itself took a long time, but the patterns in the background took even longer. But since I worked and studied on the side, the drawing dragged on for months. It wasn’t until late summer 2018 that I finally finished it.
The unicorn Zentangle drawing is a mixed media image, drawn on Hahnmühle 190 g A3 paper.
The unicorn should definitely have something colorful with it, so that it stands out nicely. Rainbow colors just fit perfectly. These have probably also taken most of the time as far as the unicorn itself is concerned. I drew the unicorn with pastel pencils by Faber-Castell and for the top layers I used the color pencils Polychromos to add a little more detail.
The patterns in the background have taken most of the time, of course, mainly because I tend to work very small with patterns. But it was very nice and relaxing to draw so many patterns again. I drew the patterns with the help of a circle and then outlined circle by circle. I used Sigma Micron Pens for that.
