Description: Not all unicorns are girly. Here's a tutorial that I've been wanting to do for a while. I love horses and I love fantasy art, so it only makes sense for me to like unicorns, right? So here's the first of most likely many fantastical equine animals: the dark unicorn!
Description: Start out by picking your pencils. Since this drawing is very dark you'll find it easiest to use pencils that are all in the "B" range. I used 9B for my darkest shading, 6B for intermediate shading, and 3B for detailed lines and lighter shading.
Description: Now start detailing and adding final shading. Start with the head and horn. Use a 3B pencil to define the horse's outline and to draw any details. Use a 6B pencil for initial shading. Use a 9B pencil to darken you shading more. I also used a kneadable eraser to lighten my background a bit and a blending stump to smooth out my shading now and again.
Description: Finish up the drawing using 6B and 9B pencils to shade in the rest of the body. Clean up your background and add/modify any details that need to be added or modified. I hope you all have fun with this tutorial. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below!
