Here’s an owl I painted tonight in Photoshop, from the ground an up. I looked at some refs to get the pattern right, but it’s made totally by me. I use the mixer brush to get the shattering effect. This is an Eurasian eagle-owl, one of the biggest owls in the world. I really, really love birds, always have. I think they are super fascinating. As a kid I used to draw tons of them an literally fill the walls of my bedroom with them. I collected feathers and sewed them onto clothes to create the best bird costume ever!
Right now I only want to paint fun stuff, no studies. If you feel like hanging this guardian on your wall and support my art career, feel free to check out my premium prints here.
