"Unicorn" for ELEPHANTMEN #36

I did a pin-up for the back cover of Image Comics'/Richard Starkings' ELEPHANTMEN #36 a couple of months ago and figured that it would be fitting to post here. :)



The title, "Unicorn", was derived from the initial mistake from European explorers that rhinocerii were actually unicorns. I kept this in mind as I designed Sahara's headdress and the overall feel of the unicorn-and-maiden legend...
