The room was filled with warm light from dozens of candles and the air smelled like sandalwood and palisander, maybe it was this especial place that gave him so much inspiration to write...

:) I felt like doing some digital painting again and OWLs, so I got the idea for this. And I love to play with light in such darker sceneries.
All done in Photoshop CS2 with the brush tool, lasso tool, a bunch of layers and layereffects and my Wacom Graphire 4. ;)
The owl there is a Tawny Owl.
I really like how this came out, it was worth all the hours. I plan to make this available as print.

The other "Crafts-Owls":

The Alchemist

The Baker

If this isn't a wizard's familiar, I'll eat my d20!

I always liked snakes, but they more prominent in my life than ever now!
I also started to go back and work on my old dragon projects, which often had owls in them.

give him some ear tufts, a missing talon on his left foot, an' a squinty eye, an' he'll look like some particular old owl scholar ;)

Oh I know to whom you refer, this picture was just inspired by the books but I did not want to draw one of the exisiting characters for it.
