This picture is what started everything of:

This is a real fawn deer living in the wilds.
I loved its face. And first thing that came to mind was: "a baby Unicorn would look just like that".

So Fawn was born:
Schleich zebra foal.

Every fawn/foal needs a mother.
So Gemma was born:
CollectA Shire mare.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then there was CollectA's Shetland pony.
Too tiny. Too silly pose. Not fitting in anywhere.
Therefore: MadeIntoUnicorn.

End result: MIDNIGHT!

Dartmoor Pony from CollectA.
Little change to head and leg. Then added manes by using strings of thread.

Did that trick again with Safari Ltd.'s Iceland horse.
It was totally warped so it wouldn't stand up by itself anymore.
I changed the leg and made a Kirin out of it.

Wow, again you did such a great job! I've seen the pic of the fawn before and it does suit a unicorn body very well. All of them are beautiful, you have a great eye for detail and color.

I also have had an idea to make a unicorn based on this fawn! Laughing

LOVE your unicorns, especially Dartmoor one!
(And I'd make Kirin's tail a lion-like as well, but that's just me Wink )

I totally agree with you. It would look better with a proper tail.
But the original horse tail is so wonderfully sculpted and with such a nice flow to it
that I just couldn't bring myself to chop it off.  Embarassed

these are so so beautiful... I love the more natural colours you've used, I wish Schleich would make some brown, black, grey coloured unicorns other than the same white.

also with the long, twisting flowing manes and tails.. unicorns are wild creatures, they wouldn't have short groomed manes!

Thank you XantheRose.
I also love the wild, long and tangled manes on Unicorns.
It gives them that Bohemian look.

CollectA did such a wonderful job sculpting the Campolina stallion, it didn't take much to turn it into a handsome Unicorn.
Only thing to do was to strip off the "horse coat" and show the Unicorn that was already slumbering underneath.
Added a horn, filled in the bridle path, chopped down the tail and to balance out the chest hair I gave him:
added a little bit of butt cheek as well.  Laughing
