Daybreak ~ Owl tree by longestdistance Daybreak ~ Owl tree by longestdistance

(scheduled post)
Indulging in a bit of personal art, I started this like a month ago but finally got around to finishing it the other day. I want to draw more art of my OCs and this is an idea I've been wanting to draw for a long time. Drawing your own OCs is the most comforting thing, I swear. Yes, I really love owls. :iconlazywaveplz:

These are my three alien owl boys.
Left: Allessandro (aka Killer) the eurasian eagle owl and his pet owl-raccoon Laguna
Center: Crescentius the snowy owl
Right: Apollow the barn owl

Here are some closeups:

Aw, what's the story on Apollow? Just seems like he has a story to tell

Thanks for asking! He's an alien barn owl who's struggling to fit in with society where humans and owl aliens live in harmony. He's a strange fellow, but contemplating his existence and purpose in life which is something I think we can all relate to at some point. I've been wanting to make a comic about him and the other owls but I'm absolutely horrid at writing, so who knows if it'll ever happen. hahaha

Ohoho thank you, I'm glad you like my owl sons~ I'd always be happy to see them in your style! At some point when I have a decent income I want to start commissioning people again; there are characters I'd love to see in your style.

Oh may I ask which ones? I'm always curious to hear what people think would suit my style, haha. I hope I am not asking too bluntly. x'D

Haha, not at all! Well, one day I'd like to commission you to draw my OC Michel owlfamilies2.tumblr.com/tagged…. He's got a very European medieval inspired design which makes me think of you.

Oooh! I remember him! I love his hair and the tiny ears! <33
I wonder why I always remind people of the middle-ages. My friend told me just the other day: "You're mainly specializing in medieval things (history/literature), right?"
Is it because of Sol? (His design is more Early Modern than medieval, though.)

Hehe yess. Me and my love for scottish fold characters :iconheplz:
From my impression you're inspired by local culture and folklore, fantasy, and European art history. So not necessarily because of Sol or any particular oc. Your overall art style has a very folk/medieval fantasy feel, in my opinion! Also IIRC we have similar taste in dojin music which is another factor haha

Can I purchase an owl tree at my local garden shop? Because I want one.

This is beautiful! Your coloring and lighting is amazing and your ocs have such great designs. And I love how you drew the tree.
Amazing as usual! :D

Aww! Thank you so much. The tree was inspired by a bonsai I saw at the botanic garden in Chicago. Bonsai trees are so cute and I would also totally love a garden of bonsai trees with owls chilling in them. :dummy:

Those things are great. Someone should make an entire place dedicated to bonsai treees and owls. I'd go there.

Thank you so much! Owls are really so charming for all the reasons you mentioned. Too bad they can't be domesticated like cats or dogs; I would have loved to have one as a pet ;p
