The Lion and The Unicorn by juliedillon The Lion and The Unicorn by juliedillon
This was my submission to ~Bill-Pulkovski 's art book Through the Looking Glass.

Here's the official blurb about the book:
The Looking Glass is a collection of art inspired by Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. With over 30 illustrations by 17 talented artists, this book is an explosion of vivid color and striking imagery. Gaze as each artist guides you down the rabbit hole and through their whimsical visions of wonderland. Read small biographies on all the contributing artists and find out what makes them tick. Will you be able to answer "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" You may just find that answer in... The Looking Glass.

You can read about it at the Looking Glass blog, or order a copy for yourself here.

Oh! My entry was based loosely on the Lion and the Unicorn from "Through the Looking Glass," in case that was unclear. :D It's modified slightly from the version in the book; in the book version, the lion and unicorn's heads are closer together, but looking back I realized I kind of liked it a little better with them spaced slightly apart. ^^;

The lighting is beautiful and the chess pieces in the corners are a nice allusion to the setting of the book!

I love the soft, creamy colors and the (looking-glass!) symmetry of the lion and unicorn.

Oh there is so much in this picture...layers upon layers upon layers. The lion is the traditional symbol of England and the Unicorn is of Scotland, like in America how we have the Bald Eagle? Same thing, just different animals. She is also holding the Crown Imperial commissioned by Henry VII to show the new absolute power he tried to have as king.

Makes me want to go write a fantasy novel about a girl who grows up to become a powerful Queen. Great stuff!

Well lions are enormous cats. You want a cat to rule you?

This is based on a chapter from Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass", so yes, it is Alice. :)

Wonderful! btw have you read The Looking Glass Wars? If you're a fan of Wonderland, you might like it - it's a fantastical (and fantastic) twist on the Alice in Wonderland story. :)

Oh wow this is incredibly beautiful, it gave me an awesome inspiration, if you don't mind. I'd like to recreate it digitally in photoshop, with people, and images, instead of a drawing?? I mean not completely, it wont be the exact same, but :) just as an inspiration.
