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.
This is beautiful, I like the way you drew that feather in his talon.
Ich wollte die längste Zeit schon mal wieder was mit Kerzen malen, ich finde da kann man mit dem Licht so schön spielen.
The main reason there was because I had done the whole scenery as a sketch already and I wanted to make him look into that direction but still make the leg that is used to write fully visible.
I'm really happy about the outcome there, especially on the lighting. It was worth the hours of work.
