Illustration Friday - Impatience


With some things, I am a very impatient person. For example, I will eat cold leftovers because I don't want to wait the 60 seconds for the microwave. But sometimes I will overwork and over think and illustration to death. So I thought it would be fun to see if I could do an illustration in 10 minutes. I just drew the first thing that popped into my mind. Why a grinning pink unicorn? Maybe my daughter has been watching too many "Charlie the Unicorn" videos on Youtube. But I kind of like his (her?) expression. I have to admit, I couldn't finish in 10 minutes. It took me closer to 30 minutes from start to finish.

I like HER! The reason it took you longer than 10 minutes is simply due to the magic of the Unicorn. *:)

Cute unicorn! I understand totally about not being able to spend small amounts of time on an illustration. This one looks great!
