The last unicorn explorations part 1

My take on some of the Last Unicorn characters. So far I’ve gotten the Unicorn, Shmendrick the Magician, Molly Grue and Mama Fortuna. I’ll do more characters because the story of this novel/movie is one of my top favorites. I sometimes wish I’m able to make my own animated adaptation of it. 

I’ve been wanting to do a good piece for The Last Unicorn for ages and ages and ages… got to go see the TOUR tonight, and found my inspiration! (Was an absolutely wonderful time, btw, highly recommended if you’re a fan. c:)

Molly will be my favorite, forever, and this movie AND the book will always be at the tippy-top of my formative influences.

“Then why do the leaves never fall here? Or the snow? Why is it always spring here? I tell you there is one unicorn left in the world, and as long as it lives in this forest we’ll find no game to hunt here. […] Stay where you are, poor beast! This is no world for you. Stay in your forest and keep your trees green and your friends protected. And good luck to you, for you are the last. ”

“Molly:   No, it can’t be. Can it be? Where have you been? Where have you been? Damn you! Where have you been?
Schmendrick:   Don’t you talk to her that way!
Unicorn:   I’m here now.
Molly:   And where were you twenty years ago? Ten years ago? Where were you when I was new? When I was one of those innocent young maidens you always come to? How dare you! How dare you come to me now, when I am this! “
