Becca's Unicorn Thumbs
So here are my thumbnails for the Unicorn project. The first two ideas are based on the unicorn that is mentioned in the Chronicles of Narnia, which Peter rode into battle (I've included Aslan the Lion in the images as well). I think a piece like this would enhance my portfolio, because I don't really have any teenage boys in there yet, or anyone in armor, and it could be a good book cover sample. BUT I really like my other idea, which is from the story The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle - in the story, a unicorn ventures out of her protected enchanted forest to find the rest of her kind - the Red Bull has chased all of the other unicorns to a far off land. I thought it would be cool to juxtapose the red of the Red Bull with the gentle blues and greens of the Unicorn - it's less of a concrete scene, and more of an image that might describe the story as a whole.
