Demon Horse Project

Hello Journal,
I am going to begin documenting an idea that has grown into a project - I call it the Demon Horse Project (simply cause that's what I initially called it).  :)
I am constantly sketching, especially during class next to my notes....and yes, I do take notes as well!  My notebooks do tend to look more like sketchbooks though...anyways!  Moving on.
So I was sketching one day in class, and realized I had been drawing several variations of one idea...a unicorn.  It came from the love I have for unicorns and their origins, as unicorns were not initially supposed to be loveable creatures.  They were greatly feared and impossible to tame, and their horn was used for....skewering...people.
So, I was fascinated by creating one, and as I explored this idea, I did stray from unicorn mythology quite a bit.  Unicorns were deadly, but still looked beautiful.  My unicorn, however, was...well...what I call a Demon Unicorn.  At first, the horn was inspired by a rhinocero…
