I was supposed to upload this lesson yesterday but I got side tracked like I often do. Feeling creative is one of the best things that can happen to me because when I do, there is no limits to what I conjure up to draw. Here is how to draw a black unicorn, step by step. I have drawn many unicorns in the past but this is the first time I have done a black unicorn. So go ahead and enjoy yourself and I will return later with other fun lessons for you all. Drawing unicorns is all part of making new fantasy characters.
