Blast from the Past #229: "Unicorn Skull Encounter"

This is a drawing I did, just for fun, back in 1983. It's one of my favorites from that time -- I think I like it because it's one of those "story in a picture" drawings. I like to imagine the various scenarios which might have led up to this one tense moment.

I also tried to do a color version of this piece, but it didn't come out so well.

I think Kevin may have also tried his hand at coloring this one, but I'm not sure. I can't find it in the files I have on this computer. -- PL

Are you kidding? The colored one looks great! Reminds me of "Wizards" or "Fire and Ice" -- those old Bakshi movies!

I agree with Tristan. I like the warm color scheme on this one. Well done!

Yeah, what's wrong with the colored one? Macabre... in a good way.

cool concept.
but with that little short-sword,hes screwed.

in black and white its like an illustration from a later edition E.Howard story or some old book.
and you get to imagine the colors for yourself.
i didnt expect it to be those colors.

Personally reminds me of William Stout's work, of which I am a huge fan.
