The Owl by vinegar The Owl by vinegar
Another art challenge by :icondaekazu:, :iconteanah:, :iconvinegar: and :iconwashuuchan:
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.

This week's topic is ~washuuchan's idea: The Owl.

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.

Very beautiful and haunting. This has almost a steampunk feel to it. Love all the different textures.

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!
