Cursive by scenceable Cursive by scenceable
Cursive is a OOAK (one of a kind) unicorn sculpture. He was made from polymer clays over tin foil and wire. He has green resin eyes, and mohair for his mane and tail.

He is 6.5 inches tall to the crest of his neck. He is slightly smaller than my other recent unicorns.

He is meant to be an andalusian type. Painted in acrylics to a dapple grey with gold horn and hooves.

My main issue with this guy is that his belly should be a lot bigger since his eck and haunches are so thick. I have a few issues with the anatomy of his back legs, but overall I really like him.

I bought all the mohair completely raw, and it took me over 2 hours just to clean the portion I used for him. But it is beautiful now, no hay or bugs or goat stink to be found! :)

He will be for sale on etsy (or maybe ebay, I haven't sold on there in ages) but not until I get back from our road trip. (don't want stuff waiting to ship while I'm away.) So around november 12.

I would agree that his belly could be a bit bigger, if you were going for a strictly equine anatomy, but since he's a unicorn why shouldn't his body be a little fanciful? I think he looks majestic, overall.

I'd like the photograph to be a little more uniformly lit (the hooves are blending completely into the backdrop on my screen), so I can get a better idea of the paint job.

Thank you :) The hooves are covered on my screen too, I think I should have picked a lighter coloured backdrop. The pink one I've been using lately is a lot better :)

I really like this piece! So often, people go in for the wispy, sylf-like unicorns; but it's nice to see a physically powerful specimen. Change can be good on occasion.

Thank you! I've done lighter ones before, but it's nice to change things up. Unicorns can be tough too! :XD:

Pretty good! But the legs seem a bit odd....

Thanks! What seems odd? I know the angle of the back legs is off but if I know, I can improve for next time :)

Well, just the structure of the legs is not correct. the back legs seem to go too far back and the upper part of the front legs just looks funny. I think it could be that its just too short and thick.

Both seem like fair points, thanks for pointing them out! :) I appreciate it!

Beautiful sculpture--I especially love the neck and expression on his face. The choice in mohair was very nice as well. :)

The paintwork on this is beautiful. I love how you've blended the colours to get the dappled effect and to bring out the details in the muscles.
