So, for my leather guild, I was supposed to make a leather-wrapped jar. Finally finished it!

I was suffering from a total mental block for what to do, until I got the first The Last Unicorn comic.

I wanted to do kind of do a jar with it.
I wanted to show the human side, and the unicorn side, in a perpetual sping (hence the lovely cherry blossoms). I did not match the hair styles - I wanted one to be softer, almost elusive, while the other is definitely stylized, harder, and concrete. Bwaha.


So I have a few elements here!

Unicorn is from the first comic of the The Last Unicorn, which belongs to Peter Beagle. Wonderful guy, quite talented.

The girl is Usagi, from the second SailorMoon art book http://mangastyle.net/book2/2-08.jpg I modified it a bit, but her look totally fits. I couldn't resist!!!

The flowers are from http://winetta.deviantart.com/art/Silver-Legacy-ch-3-152851793  - with permission.

I am inverted the flowers, and carved the girl and the unicorn normally.

This was fairly challenging for me, to be honest. There are alot of details that I can see in my head and couldn't  wait to do, but I was worried that I messed up!!

Long story short.... I FINISHED THE TOOLING!!! YAAAAAAY!!!

I’d finished tooling my original design but it felt off to me… something was missing, so I held off on finishing.

Finally, I figured out what I wanted to do – more of the flowers, to help with the fantasy/spring theme that I had going.  So I modified the design of the flowers I have, and added 3 more branches.

Finished one branch of three, tooling-wise. :) The rest of the detail will be done with color. I’m tooling these three branches lighter, as if they are in the background. :)

Whatcha think?!

So, for my leather guild, I am supposed to make a leather-wrapped jar. I am VERY behind in this! (sorry, Charlie!)

I was suffering from a total mental block for what to do.

However, I went to Wondercon last weekend and I met Peter S. Beagle… the man behind “The Last Unicorn”. (I hope he wins his case with Granada!!!)

I also got the first comic for The Last Unicorn from him, as well as a copy of the movie (can you believe it? my sister has never seen it! O_o.)

So.

So, wish me luck! Details of the carvings to follow. ^,~.

PS: this jar is not for sale, I am not making any money off of it. To my recollection, these jars will be table decoration at the IFOLG show in Saint Louis this fall, and will be given away. :)
