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!
