His name is Jika, a Great Horned Owl > ________< you can see from his ear tufts and the pattern of his feather. I did a little research of this Owl. *___* I never really notice, but this bird is so awesomee XO there's gonna be two more from his comrades XD soon.......

this is a direct quote that I found from random site:
"'Like the tiger, the great horned owl hunts in the dark, and it kills instantly. Its stripes let it blend with the forest patterns of dim light and shadow. Its two-inch feather tufts look like a tiger's ears, and it has a face like an angry cat. It is a tiger with wings - a tiger that can fly almost unseen through the darkness.' This dramatic analogy provides a useful focus for a thoughtful picture-book presentation of the owl as predator....A very attractive introduction to this majestic animal, which has survived for an impressive thirty-six million years." --Margaret A. Bush

Your gallery is amazing. I didn't know what picture to leave a comment on! They are all so good! Anyway, your colouring is so unique, it has so many tones, which while being realistic are also ethereal in a mystical, magical kind of way which suits your style and all your amazing characters perfectly. I am really impressed to see such a well thought out and developed art technique that you apply so efficiently and well to every single piece you produce! I applaud you greatly.
Amazing work, please keep it up!

Wonderful character design... All the feathers look really nice. And I like his foot. The pose is very dynamic and the coloring job is really good as well.

Awesome work! Beautiful use of colors and perspective, and that face.. :love: He looks so alive. Only the right arm looks deformed.. Other than that, it couldn't be better. I think it's the best of your works. [waiting for more]

bloodtear Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2004
Everything is really good, the perspective, the pose, the character, the colors ^^
Well... the only thing that I think it's a little strange is his right arm... seems a little deformed.. or it was supposed to be like that, lika a wing or somenthing? @_@


Yet, it's really cool!

takuto-kun Featured By Owner May 25, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nicely done! I like the mono tone and the perspective is spot on! One thing that bothers me though is the farthest arm looks like it is bending. It could be some weird fisheye lens or it could be symbolyzing a wing. I dunno... good all and all!

Wow, I like how you put it together, nice concept, angles, mood, I really like it. ^^
Corrupt-Data Featured By Owner May 24, 2004
Wow, you're really creative, you know.

It'd be awesome to see you implement the same concept to different animals. He's done really well, although the bridge of his nose seems too thin, too short, but that could just be my odd view.
BigBoyBoon Featured By Owner May 24, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
JA'USE u r crazy. u and your crazy dynamic angle makes me sick. your so good at it. i really liek the hand that is going back in to the space, its weird yet cool. ok BO-Gerra..
