It's the subtle gleam in the eyes that really makes this stand out. Absolutely gorgeous! Love the effect on the body feathers.

I love how your rather loose style still shows all the little details. It‘s a great mix that looks absolutely beautiful. Very well done!

Spooky x'D I love the Guardians of Ga'Hoole world, even though I've outgrown the books. The whole concept is just so creative and nice :3

Nice job, I tried making an owl myself some time ago, and the feathers in the face are hard. You nailed the shadows really good, and the eyes are amazing, I thought this was a photo at first lol...
