Jackowl by blayrd Jackowl by blayrd
Deep in remote parts of a savannah somewhere, this curious young jackowl surveys the open plain.

I took a long break between starting and completion of this, in which (as usual) my painting style changed slightly and I decided I didn't really like the colors, etc, etc. Eventually got tired of it so here's calling it done anyway! Really I just wanted to draw a barn owl. They have the most adorable faces, don't they?


Photoshop CS5.

This is absolutely gorgeous!  I just ended a job working with raptors, and our female barn owl was one of my favorites not only due to her being so gorgeous, but due to her quirks and personality.  You got those central, stiff feathers just right.

The combo of these two animals is interesting, but it works.  Beautiful job, as always!

That's great to hear! And sounds like it was a pretty cool job for a bird lover to have, too.

Wonder what kind of diet it would have.

I'm guessing it'd be a steady stream of rather small rodents, perhaps some insects and reptiles to spice things up, and whatever else it could get its paws on.
