Snowy Owl - I See You by DarkSilverflame Snowy Owl - I See You by DarkSilverflame
Full View is a must!

A few days ago, I had the idea to show the face of a snowy owl
emerge from a white background with no discernible beginning
or end. It looked great in my mind's eye, so here's the result :)

References: Several owl photos, where these were the most helpful to me: www.jpegwallpapers.com/images/… and constantine.typepad.com/.a/6a0…

Tools:
Tablet: Wacom Intuos 4, Software: PS CS5, Time: 2-3 hours, doing things inbetween and being generally slow about it.

I love the way the owls face just emerges out of the background - and it looks so realistic, I thought this was a photograph before I read your description xD
I'm really impressed at how you made the eyes and beak look so real, and the entire picture has this kind of unsettling yet fascinating sense of "I'm watching you" about it ^^ It feels like that owl could be ANYWHERE, staring at me x'D
Great work!
