Steampunk Unicorn by PaintedHoofprints Steampunk Unicorn by PaintedHoofprints
I did this piece a while back as a gift for a user on PonyIsland called Semilunate, who wanted a semi-realistic portrait of one of her ponies. I really like how it turned out, aside from completely not understanding how that pony is ever going to put those goggles on with her horn in the way, haha! Magic I guess! :)

It's a departure from my usual FIM style, for sure. But I like shaking things up every once in a while. Helps keep me interested in making art. XD

Tools:
Photoshop CS3
Wacom tablet Cintiq 12wx
My username on PonyIsland is Kayletha, send me a pm if you want to verify that yes, this is really me!

Thanks! I originally thought they'd look kinda silly on a realistic horse head, but it really pulled the piece together I think. :)

Replace the short, rubber bridge that connects the two lenses with a longer, semi-rigid, indented rubber bridge. The depth of the indent is equal to however much the horn gets in the way. Science!

Outstanding.
Looks completely realistic but the expression in the eyes subtly conveys intelligence.
