Concept art for the snow-unicorn.
Before the Empire, even before the Northerners, there were snow-unicorns... but they didn't start out anything close to the way they exist now.
The very first snow-unicorn was a greeting card design. The second piece was in color, with a concept of the Northerners for scale... and you can see that the snow-unicorn had a long way to go. Then followed pages and pages and pages of sketches, rough drawings, stories, and even some finished ink work of these creatures. I remained unsatisfied with the design of the snowy for several years. The tipping point to the snow-unicorn as it exists in Torn World today is It's Huge! In this particular piece (which did not have this name originally), the snow-unicorn was meant to be in the foreground, with a figure off in the distance. My perspective was unsuccessful, and one of the first comments I got was 'It's huge!' While that wasn't what I was trying to convey, it did spark the idea that the snowies were mammoth-sized creatures, and that started to solidify their design in my mind. From there, they fell neatly into place, and became the giant, furry critters that they are today.
