These fantastical creatures have never been so popular, and well-known fantasy artist Sharon Hurst shows you how to bring them to life in this, her first book. Containing 26 different unicorns to draw in a range of poses and styles, each one is achieved in just 7 simple steps, making this book suitable for all ages and abilities. Each one starts with a few basic shapes and is developed into a finished tonal drawing, and a final coloured version shows you how to take your drawing even further. Choose from majestic winged creatures or playful young unicorns and discover how easily you too can create these amazing fantasy animals. 

About the Author

About Sharon Hurst

Sharon Hurst dreamed of dragons as a child, and now, as an adult, she paints them! Inspired by vinyl record album art and the imagery in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, she developed and nurtured a desire to create fantasy art that has never left her. Her enthusiasm for fantasy art in watercolour knows no bounds, and her talent for creating fantastic worlds and bringing mystical creatures to life is awe-inspiring. Sharon's work has been exhibited in The Bankside Gallery, London and The Crypt Gallery, St. Ives, and she is a winner of the World of Froud Award. She is an active member of the SAA and has produced two Teaching Art DVDs.



Unicorns have never been so popular and appear on everything. Learn how to draw your own with this latest entry in the How to Draw series. There are 26 different ones to tackle in here, each one consisting of seven steps. The first five show how to build up the picture from simple shapes, adding new details in each stage (shown in red).  Finally, when you have inked in the outlines you can try some tonal shading or produce a coloured image. How easy you find the last two steps will depend on your prior experience.

Draw your unicorns with wings, fishy tails, zebra stripes, calves, and even a top hat. Once you have mastered the basic outline you can make them fly, rear up, swim and leap. As with all the titles in this series commercial use is prohibited, but you can put your artwork on anything for personal or charity use.
