Jellybean, the inbred unicorn

So the topic was a strange one this time... "inbred unicorn."  I tried *so* hard to make it look like he's got one nostril and one eye, in addition to the one leg,  but when I walk away and come back for another look it reads like a side view no mater what I do, AGH! . Darn the human brain and its uncanny ability to resolve unfamiliar shapes into something that makes sense. As for the name...well, if someone asks you to "taste the rainbow" in this case....you should say no.

Dreams About Flying

 This sketch group round is especially exciting because all the entries will be looked over by James Robertson of Pixar! The topic this time is "flight." I've always wondered if birds fly in their dreams when they're asleep in their cages. I'd like to think they do. The main expression I was going for on the bird was a serene longing. It's a wonderful skill to be happy wherever you are, and having dreams can be big part of that.

Camouflage was the topic of this round. Hide rat hiiiide! I think I'd like to try simplifying the tones on this one to get  a stronger focal point.
