Another piece I did in the style I used for this: [link]

Birthday present for my mom. She liked how I did "No More Black And White" so much, she attempted to brow-beat me into giving it to her. I didn't relent though, but I did promise I'd do her one for her upcoming birthday. Instead of the same sort of subject though, I made an owl, specifically a Barn Owl, since she adores them. I also colored it in warmer colors because she's a total summer person (she hates the winter) and she loves warm colors. Of all the birds I've done throughout my life (a lot), this is the first owl I've ever done. I need to do more! I love them! Owl, owl owl owl OWL.

I outdid myself with this one, and I daresay its better than the first iteration of this style. I'm thinking I might end up doing a series of these sorts of pictures, what do you think?

Its a photo because, just like the first, its too big to scan. Sorry that the colors are a bit washed out, but yeah.

Uniball pen and Prisma markers. My wrist hurts because of this!

I absolutely love this! It makes me reconsider the design for my owl tattoo!

Would it be too much to ask if you could help design my owl tattoo?

Thank you kindly! I could only ever imagine detail like that to work for a full blown back tattoo, lol. I full intend to make something like this for me as a tattoo, but as a raven.

I generally only take commissions for that sort of thing, but if you're interested feel free to send me a note and we can iron out details.

You're so good at colouring fur AND feathers! O,o Great composition too; the silhouette-ish plant-thingies in the corners make it look strikingly mosaic-like, I lurv it! 8D

I was indeed trying to go for a mosaic feel, with a bit of stained glass thrown in. Somehow, pine needles done in a more abstract way related more.

By all means, don't worry about spam, lol. Its once in a blue moon that I get good comments on any of my work, let alone three well-thought out ones. So spam away!

This style is positively beautiful and intricate. The combination of almost stained-glass wings with the natural animal is spectacular and original!
