Try your hands at drawing the mythological animal, unicorn by following a set of clear instructions. Though it was known to be difficult to be tamed, to capture the highly desired creature of yore in your canvas shouldn’t prove to be a big deal.
Make an upright oval for the head and a horizontal one for the torso. Draw a couple of curved lines for joining the two ovals thus forming the neck. Follow that up by representing the legs, wings, tail and horn by single curved lines.
Do the detailing of the head, neck and forelegs as shown in the images 4, 5 and 6. Be careful while drawing the eye as that infuses life into the sketch.
Complete the other hoofed legs and the back. Use smooth curves for giving them their shape.
Sketch the thick tail and the wide serrated wings.
Finish off by drawing the mane and the symbolic horn.
Though the sketch has an intermediate level of difficulty, it goes a long way in teaching you to draw graceful curves and arches. It has been based on the initial guidelines drawn in the first step. Hence, stay careful to maintain a suitable ratio between the sizes of the head, trunk and the legs. Best of luck with this antique piece of art.
