The Red Bull by Dreoilin The Red Bull by Dreoilin
"They passed down all the roads long ago, and the Red Bull ran close behind them." Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

From one of my all time favorite books (and movies, but I had the book in mind when doing this picture).

NOW everything finally falls into place! I saw your work on conceptArt weeks ago and LOVE it. I saw these last few pieces and thought, "that reminds me of the CA person whose stuff stood out so refreshingly!"

So, well met. :)

Thank you so much! I'm really honored that you would notice my stuff and remember me :D

Actually a similar thing happened lol- I was following your progress on the oath of Feanor piece over on CA and checked out your blog- and then I found you on DA. Except I already had one of your pieces in my favorites here! I was excited it was the same person :p

Funny how that works, huh? ;) I had a look at your favourites - and I have more than half of that in mine too. :D We really seem to be falling for the same sort of look. I just re-read the thread over at CA and found that Rackham was one of your favourites, too.

I'm putting you on my watch!

I love the linework and the desperation evident in the unicorn's body.

Oh my! This is a great picture! May I use this in a wiki about mythical creatures?

The red Forest Bull is very handsome, and I love the unicorn's expression!

Nice one, I did a red bull interpretation myself just yesterday, check it out if you like.

Your's has goes into the direction of these medieval illustrations, I'd say.
This bull is really huge !

How do you make digital art look so much like traditional? It's exceptionally beautiful.

He is a really great guy. I've toured with him a few times and sat down at dual signings with him. The last time I saw him was at the Austin Comic Con this last fall. I'm hoping into talking he and Connor into the Dallas Comic Con in May. They're just fun to hang out with!

I really like this. People usually draw the bull red like a fire. But the book says he was red like a sore, and I think you captured that. ...Hope it's what you were shooting for :)

Dreoilin Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012
That's exactly what I was shooting for! Before I did this I went through and re-read all the parts about the Bull, and that's what stood out to me.

Totally amazing! I thought it was watercolor at first.. great digital work, love the sketchy feel. That is also one of my favorite quotes.
