For this art trade with you. I wanted to make it a challenge, so I asked you do something with an unicorn, something that is out of your comfort zone. And what a result! This is absolutely stunning! You improve much more when you're our of your comfort zone!

The lighting source is somewhere from above both the unicorn and girl. And so you darken the lower parts of this piece. Excellent job with the lighting.

The flowing hair strands of the unicorn and girl are, also, perfect! From your older pieces, the way you painted the hair was good, but it didn't look flowly enough. In this piece, you nailed it! The hair is simple and natural! It looked exactly like the a gentle mystic wind from space just passed by.

Now, on to colour. I imagine unicorns with purple colours for some reason. Maybe it's because purple represents a mystical purpose. And according to this piece you used a variety of purple, blue, soft red and a little bit of pink. Good combination. But the part with a little more orange on the top right corner kind of stands out. If you were to blend that part with the rest of the soft red. It would be perfect!

The only advice I would ask you is to start using more elements of blurring. I think that most of the time, blurring is used to distinguish the 3 main grounds. That is foreground, middle ground and background. It makes the image have more impact of 3D look on a 2D artwork. For this artwork, the foreground is the unicorn and girl, middle ground is the flower field, and the background is the sky of space and planets. And as I mentioned before, it looked like there is a mystical breeze passing by. So may be, if you added flower petals that have motion blur somewhere in the front of the foreground, this piece would have this 3D look, and makes the viewers feel like there inside the piece.

Overall, this piece is something that I don't quite see in your gallery. And therefore it's simply stunning! I love it!
