Another art challenge by , , and For each challenge we interchangeably give ourselves an idea or topic to illustrate and a short, specified time to execute it in whatever shape or form... of course, without knowing what the others are going to come up with.
Unfortunately ~washuuchan couldn't join us this time because of personal reasons, but let's hope she comes back someday!
Mine is an Owl Princess and still a WIP. EDIT: it's done. But I'm leaving the old comment, as it's more fun /edit. Sorry for spamming, but thought some people would like to get noticed when it's finished
I wanted to practice painting flowers. Which was stupid. I got into the stage when I'm pretty happy with foliage (lots of custom brushes), but the flowers are still not done. Same as tiara.
I also used a ref for the owl (random google image), as I never painted one. And a ref for flowers, of course (my own). Or actually a few. And I think I based initial tiara design on some photo, but I changed it so much, I'm not sure if it even resembles it. I still don't know what got into me that I decided to paint such complicated foliage.
I'm quite happy with her owl-face. Not as much with the rest yet. But will finish it soon. Hope you'll like it!
Pencil sketch, then Photoshop and Painter for colours.
wow, I keep looking for stuff to critisise about this picture, but the only things I can find is that I don't understand the wings and her sholder owl seems to be a ghost hovering on her shoulder puff. but otherwise the entire picture just looks great!
I always did love animal to human themes (i'm sure there's a better term but its not on my brain at the moment) and this is so far one of the most pleasing pictures I've had the pleasure of viewing. It's amazing
