Pursuer by ReneCampbellArt Pursuer by ReneCampbellArt
This piece was an experiment. I've never really tried out this style with colour traditionally, and thought I'd give it a go. Still need to improve on some things, but I think it turned out okay. Let's hope it sells at the exhibition!
Also, scanners are assholes and will forever mess up colours and details. I did my best to make it look as close to the original as possible.
The reference photo was ,a href="[link]">here,</a> and my original digital concept is here. Needless to say, I got a few opinions and decided against a background in the end.
Also, Barn Owls are awesome! But I was sick of the generic-forward facing poses so I looked for something different.
I just realised the owl is looking at my signature. Oh well.

You were right to stick with the plain background. The hours of detailing you put into this might well have been lost in the haze! Great work.:happybounce:

Thanks, about 7-8 hours, which really isn't that long at all since I work about 2-3 hours in a sitting :)
