Unicorn Face Painting Tutorial Instructions and Product Details
Before we start, I'm going to go through 3 different types of basic horse head shapes, and some tips on painting eyes. There are many more, so look around and try out different styles to find out which best suits you!
The first style is more like a realistic horse shape. Start by drawing a circular shape. Then, about half way down, create the nose length and fill in with your chosen colour. Keep in mind proportions and add more if you need to!
Add an ear shape on the back of the head, and a smaller one that looks like its behind the head. Choose where your horn will go and pull it outwards, ending on the tip of your brush! You can paint your horn in another colour, but using the same colour, will save time.
The next design, is similar to My Little Pony characters. Start with the same basic shape, but make the ear larger than the first horse. The nose is more upturned & stubby. It can easily be painted with a flick at the bottom of the head. Placing the neck, will help with the placement of your unicorn's hair at the end.
Horse head number 3 is similar to horse number 1, just with more angular features. This is all a matter of personal preference and finding a style that you can work with best!
A good place to start with different eye types, is by searching for 'cartoon eyes'.
I like to create large, oval shaped eyes with eyelashes coming off one edge.
A very EASY method is to draw a closed eye line, and add lashes for the cute factor!
Another example is more of a realistic almond shaped eye.
