Step 3

Use a damp round brush to carve out a more defined wave for the fringe and tail.
Just wipe off any excess paint on a piece of tissue to keep your brush clean.

Step 6

If you are ready to outline your design, pick up your liner brush & black paint.
How to draw
Let’s work our way from the top to the bottom.

Oops, I painted a small cut on my unicorn’s arm.
But no worries, I will show you how we can fix this.
Step by step drawing
Here’s my little hack to fix mistakes. Use the same technique we used to shape our unicorn’s hair with a clean and damp round brush.
Once you’re done removing the mistake, just pop on some extra color and you’re good to go.

Step 7

Let’s use our liner brush to add pink paint as her blusher & inner ear color.

Step 8

You can stop here if you’re happy with your design.
But I’m going to show you how to draw a rainbow arch.
Art classes for kids
Since our large brush is not thick enough to pick up the entire rainbow,
I’m starting with just the first 2 colors using our medium flat brush for the inner arch.

I will then switch to a large flat brush to pick up the remaining colors.

Put these on the outer arch.

To make our rainbow blend smoothly, I’m overlapping the pink area again using the medium flat brush with the first 2 colors.

Step 9

If you really want your design to pop, then go ahead to give it an extra outline in white.

Step 10

I decided my unicorn looked too washed out, so I am taking my liner brush with purple to add some color to her hooves.

If you try this design at home, you should probably do this step before the black outline.

Step 11

Let’s give our unicorn some magical wings.
Using the same liner brush in white, let’s draw some teardrops in decreasing sizes.
They should all be pointing back towards the shoulder of your unicorn.

For more magic, go ahead to draw some starbursts and dots all over your rainbow.
And that’s it! I hope you love your cute and easy drawing of this Baby Unicorn!
