Pages of Special Merit
This editions award goes to ....
Dream Forests.com is an excellent
website that in it's own words is "filled with
marvels beyond imagining". Formally called "Unicorns Dell" (I think) this site must be on
your "must see" list. It has a page about unicorns under the 'Dream Creatures' section which has
a link to a large picture gallery of Unicorns. There are many other things too including dragons,
Centaurs and Pegasus. There are pages about horses too. The site contains pictures of the
authors own original sketches, paintings and sculpture too. All this and more is contained
inside a site with beautifully designed graphics which is a joy to navigate through using
a java based index toolbar. This site is impressive in many respects, for which both of
it's authors, Unica and Taiyles, deserves recognition by getting this editions award.
What is even more amazing, is that they successfully co-operate despite being
many thousands of miles apart !! Well done there both of you !

Unicorn Artwork, the Elfwood Gallery
One place I
often visit to find original artwork on the Internet is the
Elfwood gallery at http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/elfwood.html
It states it is
the largest home of amateur Science Fiction & Fantasy art and
fiction, and I believe this to be
quite a true statement from what I've seen ! It's a non-profit project created and maintained by
Thomas F Abrahamsson and others, based in Sweden.
There is a lot
of wonderful unicorn artwork to be found on there in the "Lothlorien" online
art gallery ! In each edition, I do a review of some of the best that I've found there.

yourself and let me see it, then please email me.

More Unicorn Pictures
These two impressive stone unicorn figures are
on a factory wall in Stafford near my home.
They were erected when the building was
constructed which was sometime around 1937-1938.
Click on the image to see a close-up of one of these.
(These recent digital camera pictures replace the one's shown here previously)
Recently several more people
have sent to me some wonderful unicorn
artwork they had created, which with their permission
I am showing on these pages
This picture, created using
Photoshop, was sent to me by Mare Astra
as a self portrait. She is significant for having one of the first Unicorn
websites I ever found on the Internet, and her site helped to
inspire the creation of this website over three years ago.
This was one of two pictures
sent to me by an artist called Shar.
Again, as I liked it so much, I asked if it could be displayed here.
Content and Originality
Original work is becoming
rarer, and certainly should be valued. But too many
websites recently though are copying others ideas and work then claiming
sole right to it themselves ! They also often use annoying Java code that
stops the right mouse button from working. It's not easy to bookmark pages
easily for reviewing on this page when half the browsers functions have
been disabled by unfriendly Java code ! There are better
ways of protecting original images such as watermarks.
really enjoyed this or have any comments, then please sign my Guestbook
