The Mythical Unicorns and Pegasi

Graphic DesignThe Mythical Unicorns and Pegasi

Unicorns and pegasi are well-known mythical creatures featured in films, books, cartoons, and paintings. Now it’s time for them to make them the main star of a photo!

This is why we at DesignCrowd hosted a photoshop contest to spark the imagination of our creative community. The challenge? To seamlessly and flawlessly integrate unicorns or pegasus into various images, resulting in a magical visual feast.

There are no limits to the challenge. Designers can place them in medieval settings, fantasy realms, Ancient Greece, or even the streets of New York if they wish. They can even depict them hanging out in their backyard (who doesn’t want a pet unicorn, right?).

The contest has received 47 submissions from 39 creatives. Check out the wonderful entries below! 

Regal and Graceful

The winning submission is this seamless and beautiful edit from batbrat. The drama that this photo brings is top-notch! From the wind, flowy mane, and folded wings, it looks like our pegasus just came down from the sky to grace us all. 


The Powerful Unicorn

We also loved this entry from DaemonDCLXVI. Our runner-up created a great edit depicting a white unicorn in a grassy field. It’s a very believable edit, with excellent light source matching and shading.

Steampunk Unicorn

We also want to give a shout out to this entry from LunarRose. It depicts a pegasus in a gold steampunk gear. The rich gold colors here really make the photo pop.

There’s a great variety and versatility in the entries we received. Some opted for a subtle and realistic integration, making the mythical creatures look like they were in the original photo. While others embraced a more surreal and bold approach, creating an otherworldly look.
