The room was filled with warm light from dozens of candles and the air smelled like sandalwood and palisander, maybe it was this especial place that gave him so much inspiration to write...
I felt like doing some digital painting again and OWLs, so I got the idea for this. And I love to play with light in such darker sceneries.
All done in Photoshop CS2 with the brush tool, lasso tool, a bunch of layers and layereffects and my Wacom Graphire 4.
The owl there is a Tawny Owl.
I really like how this came out, it was worth all the hours. I plan to make this available as print.
