Portrait of Reid, a boreal owl, for Winters! Absolutely loved creating this...

Love the facial marking and it's really nice that you've managed to keep that traditional, textured look even with digital media

Thank you so much! :D I must admit, a great deal of this one was built upon graphite- here's the scanned traditional image. Making a finished/fully-rendered piece of work 100% digitally still feels so alien to me, ha!

I was kinda like " Woah, no one has commented/faved this yet?". I know that feel when you put a bunch of work into a peice only for it to go unnoticed. Then you stick up a lesser commission of a niche and all the fans pour out T-T

Love how tangible-looking your digital art is, and those rich browns are sublime.

Thank you very much. These days it's become a running gag of mine to use BROWN, ONLY EVER BROWN, it's such fun!

I don't blame you any though, browns are such a versatile color to use and illustrate with!

I'll fave just about anything you submit, and I'll fave just about anything that involves owls. But this guy's faintly smug, self-satisfied expression just makes this piece. Hilarious!
