Heart's Blood by slr2moons Heart's Blood by slr2moons
Created for rebecca_selene's inspired crossover fic "Heart's Blood", written as a part of the journeystory Big Bang. You can read her fic here!

Both of these movies--The Last Unicorn and Disney's Sleeping Beauty--had a strong impact upon my childhood. When I read rebecca_selene's fanfic summary on the journeystory comm, I knew I HAD to claim it for art. Not only does it give me the perfect excuse to draw my first love (OMG HORSIES!), but I can pay tribute to one of the Disney studio's most exquisite works of art, as Sleeping Beauty was the last Disney film created entirely by hand.

I wanted an animation cell look for the image, which is why I used cell shading with a full background. That background is a watercolor painting I completed and scanned in several years ago. It worked perfectly here, much to my delight!

Deciding what symbols to fill the filigree corners with was interesting. In the upper right is Haggard's castle, lower right is the spinning wheel, lower left is Maleficent's crow and the unicorn's butterfly, and upper left is the vial of blood that is central to the story.

I am continuing my quest to include more detail in my artwork, thus the filigree, the laces on Aurora's dress, and the unicorn's mane. And yes, I had a great deal of fun with that mane! It's my favorite part of the pic. All those swirls and curves! X3 Kyaaa!
