ohh I love the symbolism in this. the tiger is so well drawn, and I actually didn't really see the torso in there at first. I really love the yellow bits and the square shapes too.

Heh in person it's actually metallic gold ink, but it doesn't photograph well.

If you have specific ideas about a unicorn, I can do one. But yeah I do them all the time XD

I am very bad at thinking up fantasy animals but I did think it would be nice to have a unicorn or a griffin, or something entirely made up incorporating whatever features of every known fantasy animal XD
But yes, the unicorn in mind would look something like the one here, only more savage. I don't like the prettification of unicorns, every folk or fairy tale represents them as animals to be afraid of...

what specific wishes you have are for the best, since I draw stuff like that anyway so I'd want to make it to your specifications instead of something I would draw without thinking XD

When it comes to fantasy animals, I don't have specs to give, my brain for w/e reason does not work on those lines. ^^'

What this reminds me of is a illustrated piece of a 19th Century children's book about monsters and stuff~~ :la: I LOVE IT!!

hehe :blushes: Actually I love 19th and early 20 cent. illustration most of all, so I'd love my art to resemble that XD Rackham, Crane, Kay Nielsen, etc are some of my favorite illustrators

I would argue that this could go in a newspaper from 80 years ago.

I'll say. :XD: The one I had last night was the only meaningful one I can remember ever having (and many parts of it were still pretty weird). And I've never had a recurring or sexual dream.

I've had many, many epic bizarro dreams. And sexual ones, altho those are pretty rare.

I also have a few recurring dreams 1. owning bizarre aquarium animals or having aquarium trouble 2. Realizing I've forgotten to feed a bunch of birds or animals I owned and sometimes some of them are dying 3. Going on trips to country houses and trying to get up into the mountains to explore, sometimes to a place where horses are 4. my parents trying to kill me 5. Being pregnant/having a baby and not knowing what happened, and my family is trying to force me to do it

Sometimes even similar places come up in different dreams. It's really bizarre.

I also have lots of dreams about horses like I'm hugging them or whatever and they feel really cuddly and omgg I just spend a lot of time with the horse petting them and going on rides :3
