Tyto by SunStateGalleries Tyto by SunStateGalleries
Mushroooommsss.
Tried to do a background. I think she will be a new character, because I have drawn her a lot.
Barn owl, caracal, amur leopard, and snow leopard.

It is much more colorful, and has more value in RL, the scan took away some brightness. I know I messed up the wings a little >.<

As always, mixed media: Watercolors, ink, color pencils and white charcoal, a5 on 140lb coldpress.

Enjoy ^^

Beautiful gryph! Even though you intended it to be bright, the muted colour is quite nice, like a shaded wood ^_^

Wow, the mood that you set here with the colors and textures is wonderful! This has a really earthy, serene feel to it that I absolutely love. ♥ And the watercolors really add a lot to that, I think!

She's gorgeous! The earthy color scheme works beautifully with the griffin(?). (I dunno what else to call her. ^^;) Barn owls are my favorite species of owl.

:XD: I actually first learned their scientific name from reading Guardians of Ga'Hoole.

nice setting and background wonderful greens and such cute shrooms
the more natural colours of this.... um whatever it is is wonderul my only concern is the lines on the wings, if you are to add detail to wings then i suggest studying them! and you were asking about books about painting before?

I know, I even said I messed up on them >.<, I used no refs for this painting so they are pretty un-detailed and in the wrong places. I will try and buy that book, I would love to have it!! :heart: Thank you so much for that, hopefully they sell it in the US.
