Devil Owl by CrimsonMagpie Devil Owl by CrimsonMagpie
This was for a brief that called for us to illustrate many different owls in varying states of stylisation, and is the most highly-polished and conventional of the final images I created.

For some reason this was very popular with both my tutors and fellow students, and after being hung in the main stairwell for a fortnight (part of our owl mini-exhibition) now resides in its frame on the classroom wall. :B

Little dude is meant to look all innocent like that, as if it doesn't know how evil it is.

Acrylic on paper, 29.7 x 42cm 11.69 x 16.54

Thanks so much to =tintits, *Ptolemy666 and ^Mollinda for the suggestions and DD, it's so much appreciated! :iconproudplz:

Suggester says: "I just like the whole composition and the colours, or better said colour he used, which he managed to apply in so many different tones that the painting doesn't look boring at all, and I also think he made great use of lighting and used an interesting positioning of light source. I also think he gave the concept of Devil an interesting and subtle approach and the huge horns definitely give the effect of creepiness that he meant to convey."

To be honest, it doesn't bother me much, although receiving a couple of comments that don't kiss your butt obviously bothers you greatly! :meow:
