mr. owl

i got a commission to do a painting of mr. owl for the lovely miss elizabeth doss' highschool graduation. her mom didn't want to give her a "traditional" set of pearls, or anything, and she loves owls, so this was what she decided to do. isn't that a thoughtful and creative gift? i kind of wanted to keep him for myself, though.

 i love when that happens.

here he is after i simply "sketched" him out with a dry brush.
here he is sort of mid-way through. i ended up changing the color of his tummy last-minute. his eyes look particularly crazy here, :)
annnd, he's done! yay, mr. owl.
