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

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 :)

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. ( Featured by ChewedKandi )

It's gorgeous. The owl, the feathers, the colors... they just "flow" together so beautifully and naturally.

Thx for your appreciation, but I wouldn't like my pictures here on dA to be used for business cards or commercial work.
On top of this, I don't think if a grim owl on a dark blue background would be the right kind of branding for a lawyer ;)

gefällt mir sehr gut. grad dass die geschwungenen linien nicht so arg nach vektor-kurve aussehen.
auch die farbwahl ist sehr geil.
sehr dynamisch :)

Askhari Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2007
Vielen Dank... die geschwungenen Linien sind auch großteils einfach mit dem Tablet gezogen - allerdings find ichs zZ noch recht schwer einen sauberen Vektor-Charakter beizubehalten, und trotzdem eine gewisse unregelmäßigkeit und Detail reinzubringen

Cool design. Love the freeform flow of the bird's feathers. Would look great on a shirt or even a wallpaper design.

Have you found a place that makes this print into a tshirt? This is awesome and my best friend has a thing for owls, AND his birthday is coming up, so this would be perfect.
