I think this pose is perfect. You really captured the regal and intense persona of the owl. Really beautiful work.

Thank you. I wish I could have kept this piece. It was bought by Ripley's Believe it or Not in Canada

This is AMAZING. I showed it to my mom (she LOVES all things owls, it's ridiculous) and she fell in love with it!

Could you give me a permission to use this image as illustration with due refernce and unaltered (except resizing) in my personal, non-commercial blog? (The blog's mascot is an owl and most of the illustrations are owls. But I have motoring related stuff and I couldn't find suitable illustrations yet, and this is really GREAT!) Take my fav, too!

WOW!!!  Words cannot describe how beautiful your work is.  To be able to make 3D animals is one thing, but to have them come alive through your poses and expressions. I was totally in awe from the first page of your gallery, had to check out the whole thing.  Birds of prey, especially the Great Horned Owl, are my favorite creatures in the world.  This one is amazing, how you captured it gaze, it looks like it is actually staring at its next meal...absolutely beautiful.  I didn't see one piece in your gallery that I did not marvel at.  I do 3D wood art, now I wish I had taken metal shop when I was a kid.

Thanks for writing back, you deserve all the praise you can get, you are very talented.  I know you hear this a lot...but I hope one day to afford one of your pieces.  Do you have other websites besides DA.  Again, beautiful and brilliantly thought out work.  I love to see people who are clever and figure out ways of doing things different than most people.

Rachael: Do you like our owl?

Deckard: It's artificial?

Rachael: Of course it is.

Deckard: Must be expensive.

Rachael: Very.

Rachael: I'm Rachael.

Deckard: Deckard.

Rachael: It seems you feel our work is not a benefit to the public.

Deckard: Replicants are like any other machine - they're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, it's not my problem.
