Awwww! O my gosh! This is amazing. The owl is so cute and the detail is wonderful. The eyes are my favorite. Have you ever tried drawing a horse or a tiger? I'm curious as to how that would turn out...haha

Birds have never really been a drawing interest of mine... I like people better, I think. But I get fascinated with the varying textures on them, how feathers can make so many different feels. They're much more intriguing to me than fur. Thankyou!

Thanks so much for the comment. :D

And as for the textures, it's kind of hard to say since I did this over a year ago and no longer have the original. All I can say is that I did a light base layer on the darker feathers first and then just paid very close attention to the shadows to create the appearance of separate feathers and clumps of feathers. If you're using a photo, don't try to make up the shadows since they really help define the direction of the feathers, which makes them much more real than if they were uniform and flat. Other than that, it was just the work of pencil precision and some tissue-smudging. :)

It really is very lifelike. You have a great deal of skill. Just out of curiosity, how did you achieve the feathery textures? did you use any tools for smudging? Just curious. =]

This looks just like a real owl! I love the details. It looks like a real photo. I love how the eyes look glossy and the texture of the feathers.
