Allessandro, owl of dawn. by longestdistance Allessandro, owl of dawn. by longestdistance
(scheduled post)
A continuation of my pet project: making portraits of my owl OCs while imagining them as hypothetical book covers.  This is Allessandro, a Eurasian eagle owl. His scleras are blood orange, and he also has a majestic beard which is mostly hidden by the owl. Allessandro is part of the owl trio with Apollow and Crescentius.

You can see the other owls here. I am currently working on the fourth and final image!

I can't decide who's better looking, Allesandro or the owl! I love their intense gaze paired with this almost hug like pose. XD

Oh wow, the oranges are REALLY striking here, especially when juxtaposed with the shadowy blacks on Allessandro's face and the owl.
