been wanting to do this one for a while now, finally got the time...hope you'll like it:)

So I was feeling a bit medieval and this is the result.
Her dress is loosely based on 14th century french attire.
I used ~Aestivall-Stock's stock for the horse - aestivall-stock.deviantart.com…

Excellent attention to historical accuracy from facial makeup to clothing style. You even included the "pregnant lump" look from the era rather than favoring the modern tiny waist. I especially like the woman's facial expression.

 Is this referencing that saying that a unicorn only bows its head to a maiden of pure heart? (Or something along those lines? )

you are very very talented. Not just in drawing but in your coloring and shading as well. I love the texture of her dress, the horse's satiny coat and the smoothness of the water.

This is really awesome. I think some atmospheric perspective (making the background less saturated) would make this really pop.
