Night falls by ~Askhari is a beautifully stylised vector of an owl in the night. Check out the way the feathers have been rendered with staggered gradients... simply beautiful.

Night falls

Once I was told, if you look into the owls eyes, you might never be able to look away again...

Illustrator, Wacom tablet, roughly 5h
I've been pretty lazy with visiting deviantArt these last years, and was totally surprised today to find this old sketch of mine to have gotten a DD - Thank you very, very much for that, for all the favs & comments and everything, that's amazing!

As I got some request I added a print, hope you enjoy :)

I wish there was a bigger version, I'd love to get a better look at the details.

Owls are so very pretty. I like seeing them at the zoo, but not when they are confined in small cages. A habitat is better even if it does have limitations for the owls' freedom as it pertains to their flying around. This is just beautiful. Nicely done :hug:

You're able to walk away, you just don't want to because owls are so amazing.

Ohh! I would love a black & yellow / Black & red version of this.

could look nice, I'm with you - sadly it was a scribble and the paths & layers are a mess, don't know if I can sort it out to make other color versions that look good ;)

Ahh, no problem then! :)
Congrats on the DD, totally deserved it.
