2 little owls

Here's a drawing of 2 surreal little owls I made recently. I wanted to do something colourful and whimsical and I'm pretty happy with the result.

It's done in Neocolor II used dry, Pitt big brush pen and Pitt soft black oil based pastel pencil on Cansol XL recycled bristol 11x14"

I hope you guys like it

Virginie. This is so colourful and adorable. It would make a wonderful illustration for a children's book.

Re: 2 little owls

Thank you Chammi, CaliAnn, Anthony, Fedetony and Penny for your nice comments

I'm thinking of making other illustrations with these 2 characters as I had so much fun making this one. I have absolutely no talent to write stories but if ever I meet someone who feels like writing a children's story, I could offer these as illustrations

Re: 2 little owls

This is charming. Colourful and fun. I love the face of the orange owl. I like the texture of the tree too.
