Just to refresh your memory from our exchange when I missed out on the the first snow owl at the bleedingfingerstudio store opening... DIBS!!!

I will start funneling layaway payments for Feb if that cuts any ice! : )

Awesome work!
I will have several owls finished by then, you'll have choices!!!


Thanks all! Glad to contribute to this Killah Site!

Don't know how much you can see the progress here, it's been a day of tightening up the work, I should be at final shading tomorrow, I hope.

A couple closer pics, the wings are in total disarray right now, but it's always like that right before the finish.

Is this the first 3D scratchboard ever?
It looks it'll fly out of the paper!

I'm a bird lover and know you should be illustrating some bird books
All your bird images are outstanding with great detail

That Scolopax rusticola you designed for the EB holliday card is WOW!

Sorry, man, but you're not gonna win without a red bull logo in there somewhere.

Otherwise, this would make a good movie poster for:

Get on it, mondo!

Thanks All!!! :oops:

I'm calling this one done.
I shot it with a coat of sealer which evens everything out and gets rid of smudges, and stuff.
I'll add 5 or 6 more coats before it's all finished.

A VERY simple frame for it coming.

That is just too realistic for me, I'd fear my fingers around those pieces! :)

Love the owl.
