Thank you everyone!
waterbaby, I did tell him I liked the pictures. Even if he didn't think they were good, I'm proud of them!

Thanks for all the praise, I'm happy I finally shared here something I made. In other communities things get lost or overlooked sometimes.

beautiful! i hope you do the red bull and the harpey eagle too!!!! i love that movie sooo much! and the book!

I don't know if I'll try them, I made the unicorn for a contest and I have ideas of my own I'd love to make. But I have always liked the bull, who knows?

Holy unicorn! That is amazing. I've really never seen anything like this done in crochet. It's really more of a sculpture than a doll. Thank you for sharing. Your pictures are great!!

My photographer boyfriend actually told me they sucked. Not as harshly, but I love my pictures anyway. I'm glad you liked them!
I waas going to submit it to the sculpture category, but crochet is a craft after all and I think the most suitable category.

I'm in awe of the shaping already - and then it's even poseable! Wow, this is really beautiful and your skills are amazing! Looking forward to see more of your work here!

I wanted to make her more delicate and lifelike, so a regular amigurumi style wasn't going to work. So I got the idea of a wire frame, and I love the outcome Cheesy

Thank you everybody! I will definitely post more of the things I make with this technique.I already have my designs, hopefully it won't take me too long to make them.

Hi everybody!  I've lurked on this site for a long time, and finally made something that made me want to post.
I made her for a The Last Unicorn art contest by Conlan Art, the publishers of the comic, which is totally gorgeous and you should get.
I used galvanized wire for a structure, and then shaped the unicorn around it, leaving holes for the legs. For the mane, I used a My Little Pony 'rehairing' technique and fake platinum blond hair I had to tone to silver/white. The hooves are grey yarn and the horn is an electronics white wire painted with glittery silver nail enamel.
The shape of the eyes is a tiny stripped wire inserted as if the sc were the holes from a breadboard, and the eyes themselves are plastic crystals embedded and glued.
I'm very proud of it, and will try to make a pattern once I finish a slightly more ambitious project: a dragon!
Hope you like it Cheesy
