Your owl is beautiful. I love the detail in the wing feathers, looks so realistic. Lovely contrasting dark background too. I like the positioning of the owl as well. I think I would have left out the light area in the top right corner - assuming bokeh on the photo ref? - and made the whole background a uniform black (just my preference though) :)

Beautiful work. I love the dark bg against the creamy beauty of the plumage.

Thanks Kay and Chammi. Kay, it was without the orbs, I add them because it gave balance to the composition. I have a pic without them, but it felt incomplete and kind of empty.. It actually was quite a challenge to make them,light is very difficult to depict :)

Love this! Perfection to a 't'! The orbs give your composition a balance and is something "out there" the owl is looking at.

Thanks Kay. I'm glad you liked it :).... I also like the orbs... Wanted to draw them already for a while :D

This is just fantastic - beautiful job! The light spheres make me think of night time and I get the sense the owl is high on a building of sorts with the lights coming through the darkness - very nice work!

How lovely! The background is a really nice touch against all that sharply drawn realism.
