Owlpocalypse by charcoalfeather Owlpocalypse by charcoalfeather
Inspired by a conversation with :iconeternalwinters: about one of my favorite children's series (at least when I was a child), the Guardians of Ga'hoole, which features a gang of anthropomorphic owls.

Just a partly-machine owl with blood in the background. Probably a Pure One on steroids in a post-apocalyptic setting/cyberpunk or something. This was originally supposed to be a "pimped" version of The Shattering's cover, but that never came to be.

What I originally wanted this to look like, but since I knew I would never be able to finish it, I just did this instead:

Background textures from www.cgtextures.com
Blood splatter brush: [link]

Yes, I started drawing animals again.

Painted on Corel Painter X, 2.5 hours.

c) Kathryn Lasky and her Guardians of Ga'hoole series

Yeah, those eyes are pretty freaky, especially since you now know it's a robot.

Dramatic effect. Also thought I needed to put something in background so the bird wouldn't blend in with the texture.

"Just a partly-machine owl with blood in the background. Probably a Pure One on steroids in a post-apocalyptic setting/cyberpunk or something." <--- This cracked me up.

Also I think that is Ginger, although there are debates which owl that is.

Also, I think you should post the other version you have linked there, thats also quite cool.
