I wanted to draw a cool looking cartoon animal that falls under the fantasy category. I will show you "how to draw a cartoon unicorn step by step”. There is already an animated unicorn from the movie “The Last Unicorn” that I drew some time back. So if your thinking that the one in this tutorial looks similar to the one drawn from the movie, you are right. I was inspired to draw a cartoon unicorn that has some characteristics from the anime movie. I did have fun with this lesson, and I look forward to drawing many more just like it. The unicorn is a very beautiful mythical beast that is mentioned in plenty of books, movies, and tales. One of my favorite movies that has one of the most beautiful unicorns I have ever seen in a flick is “Legend” which was one of Tom Cruise’s very first movies. The two horses in that flick were amazing and I really felt like they were totally real. Anyways, this lesson should be pretty easy to follow and understand. You can play with the colors when it is time to shade in your cartoon unicorn. I chose a blue color for the hair which means that this unicorn could be of either gender. If you want a pretty girly looking animal, all you have to do is add some long eyelashes, and color the mane and tail pink, yellow, or any other pastel looking shade. When you learn “how to draw a cartoon unicorn”, you will also be having fun. I will be back later with more tutorials in a bit. Until then, keep drawing and have a butt load of fun! Peace peeps.
