Owl Princess by Deevad Owl Princess by Deevad
A new personnal artwork, I studied owl lastly, I really like those birds. I also could record the process with Kazam on Kubuntu 12.04. As usual with Linux , video editing and converting were a pain, and things who worked yesterday doesn't work today. Bah ... I start to get used too :) Here is the link :

Full Youtube HD video timelapse (18min) : [link]

( Mypaint / Krita mainly ; for more details watch the video. )

Please forgive my presumption, but was so taken with this illustration I used it unchanged and appropriately credited in a little feebie D&D goof I wrote up - originally for my daughter, but then shared out.  It really needed a good illustration to drive home the point (random tables don't have the visual impact of an owl princess).

You're truely a master, how you started with values and shading, not to mention the complicated system/software u were using, you make it seem simple!

very inspirational indeed I surely could learn a lot from this video. Thank you so much for sharing it.

Discovered this from your speedpaint video. Good job! :D
Deevad Featured By Owner May 11, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks !
I hope I'll find soon the time to make a new Youtube video.
The workflow I used in this one is a bit dated ; now I use Krita only.
Version 2.8 is really cool.

I was mesmerized by the video, and although I want to do digital art it intimidates the heck out of me.  If you could please, tell me just how many hours (ballpark figure) you devoted to this project from preliminary sketches to completed piece?

Griatch-art Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It was very interesting to see the work process of this in the video (Krita is, as you know, not really something I use much yet). I like the colours and the realistic-looking owl!

Your technique is as always very good. If I may offer some critique is has to do with the emotional impact. To be honest I more get the wibe of a very good speed paint rather than a finished artwork from this though. I think the lack of background could be a part of this. In a sense there is not much happening in the image - it's a girl and an owl looking off-screen. There is a hint of a branch, but apart from that we don't know much about this world. She looks kinda neutral and relaxed ... doing nothing.
Some scene-setting background or maybe some small insect flying up to communicate to her would immediately help the mind to race (is the insect a scout in an elven war, someone looking for help, a loyal servant to the girl on the owl? And so on). Adding some "action", no matter how little, would add a lot to this I think.
Just some thoughts in the interest of constructive feedback. :)
Deevad Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Oh, thanks for this constructive feedback.
The static feeling is indeed a part of my portfolio piece I repeat and repeat.
You put the finger on something I definitely need to work on. thx!

I think you did a very good job with this painting and it was great to see you do another video tutorial. I think it is very good for artists see how others work. Though I would like to hear you do a voice over. I know you think that people will have a hard time with the accent, but I have heard you and find you easy to understand. Just food for thought.

Have a good one,

Amazing. I really like brushwork in this one. The strokes on the owl's feathers and the hair look beautiful.

-silverwing- Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012
Beautiful picture! The girl looks so alive, and the owl seems very content and sure of himself, like he could take on the world if need be and she requested it. Lovely detail, as well!
