Stained Glass: Amalthea by Akili-Amethyst Stained Glass: Amalthea by Akili-Amethyst

"You can find the others if you are brave. They passed down all the roads long ago, and the Red Bull ran close behind them and covered their footprints..."



This line in the movie was my inspiration for this one. I absolutely love the movie and really wanted to do it justice in this piece. There is so much detail and heart in every character and creature. It's absolutely beautiful.


Thank you donaters! You made this possible!


Please check out my profile for more projects that need donations!

I actually had a hard time deciding which characters to put in here for exactly that reason. All of them were so full of life and quirkiness, and therefore all seemed equally important. But I am satisfied with what I have completed, and I hope you are too.
I wanted to have this done by my birthday, the 8th, but I underestimated just how much detail was in all these characters. I can't imagine animating them cell by cell!!

Inspired by 'the Last Unicorn', an animated film by Rankin/Bass, based on the novel of the same name by Peter S. Beagle. Also inspired by Kingdom Hearts, copyright Square Enix and Disney.

gorgeous work. i only recently discovered the last unicorn, which is ridiculous considering i love rankin/bass animation. it's become one of my favorite movies now. you do more than it's justice. this is a perfect homage to it.

So now we know Celestia's origins, for when Amalthea killed the Red Bull, it gave her wings...

This movie is why unicorns are among my favorite mythological animals. I love the characters, the music, the story...I love it all. Heck, I think this movie was my first exposure to Sir Christopher Lee and Jeff Bridges (love Jeff Bridges).

You did very well on this stained glass. It holds the spirit of the movie.

Oh, man, the graphic novel is MINDBLOWING. It's, like, all versions of this work are really impressive for different reasons. Like, the book is written beautifully, and the movie has these great character designs, and the graphic novel has all these mindblowing splash pages... :love:

this movie is so very great!!! you have quite a go with the characters, the look just the same! somehow i really love this one and dont, maybe is just that with the movie having so much detail the image looks a little simple? im not sure, i really like the shapes, though the composition i dont know, great work though! i glad to see someone appreciate this movie ^^ the unicorns running look amazing
