Valentine by nunt Valentine by nunt
I went on holiday to Majorca with my parents, so had some time to do some drawing. This is Valentine, a tawny owl at Shepreth Wildlife park where I volunteer. Based on a photo taken by me. Done in coloured ballpoint pen on A4 paper

I'm running out of brown pen...

Wow! I first thought it was colored pencil but was even more shocked that is was ballpoint pens. Great job on the shading and use of color!

Love the color. I didn't even know you could get brown ball point pen but now I want one or maybe two :giggle: Either way... love the way it still looks intense in that way owls can but not overtly so and that it is not staring down the viewer. The border is also interesting but not so much to take away from your subject.

thank you for the lovely comment.
I didn't know you could get brown either, I used to just do them in black with maybe a hint of blue or red, but then I found a pack coloured pens in a stationary shop. I was very happy. Now I'm wondering if I have to buy a whole new pack just to get a brown :s
I find that animals looking directly at the viewer are often less interesting, although not always so.

Well that would suck although since you know the brand you could probably look them up online.

Yes, not always but it is nice to see a different take.
