Red Owl Skyline by FroggFire Red Owl Skyline by FroggFire
Inspired by the awesome work of fellow Deviant art member: katat0nik [link]
I thought I'd try drawing super small like she does and see what happens.
This is 2.5"x3.5"!
It just so happens that this fits the Illustration Friday theme of : Skyline : as well.

I think I'll use different paper next time. This is much too grainy.

Be sure to check out katat0nik's work as well, she's the master!

I love everything about this piece from the owl to the cool stars and the graininess gives the piece a wonderful character.

Thanks! I'm not real fond of the graininess, but everyone else seems to be ok with it.
I like smooooooth colors. Oh well! :XD:

Oh wow!! You've officially created your first ATC/ACEO :D !!
Great use of color, very nice concept too:D I like the position of the moon behind the owl's head, near it's eye:) I can't stop smiling now:D I'm glad I have inspired you, I think you'll do very well in this small format (please do more!):D
What kind of paper did you use? I think the grainy-ness is fine, it added a nice texture to the mountains & owl:)

Well of course I'm very excited that I have created my first ATC/ACEO...but what the heck does that mean? :confused:
:giggle:
The paper I used was Omni Sketchbook paper. Its my nice sketchbook, but nothing too special.
I was wondering what kind of paper you use for your drawings (??) because I love the lush smoothness you create.
I experimented a bit with bristol board tonight, looks pretty close.
Thanks for the :+fav::blowkiss:
:bounce: :floating:

:D I use 100lb Smooth Bristol (made by Strathmore) for my colored pencil work:)

ATC stands for "Artist Trading Card". It is 2.5" x 3.5" artwork that is traded among artists :)

ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions & Originals". These are 2.5" x 3.5" artwork that are usually sold to art collectors, but sometimes traded:)
