"Oh, you do know me!" she cried, and the breath of her delight blew the butterfly twenty feet away. When he came scrambling back to her, she pleaded, "Butterfly, if you really know who I am, tell me if you have ever seen anyone like me, tell me which way I must go to find them. Where have they gone?"

... "Over the mountains of the moon," the butterfly began, "down the Valley of the Shadow, ride, boldly ride." Then he stopped suddenly and said in a strange voice, "No, no, listen, don't listen to me, listen. You can find your people if you are brave. They passed down all the roads long ago, and the Red Bull ran close behind them and covered their footprints. Let nothing you dismay, but don't be half-safe." His wings brushed against the unicorn's skin.


- The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle

My second piece for The Last Unicorn Art Show!

I know the bull in the movie had more of a hulking, muscular build, which is part of what made the character so intimidating, but I randomly sketched him with long legs that matched the unicorn's and got attached to how it made him look almost wolf-like. Since his purpose in the story was to hunt down all the unicorns and drive them into the sea, I thought the effect was interesting. Like the unicorn, the bull has a fleece-wrapped wire skeleton that allows his legs and tail to be posed :)
