    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!
