Okay, so this owl was supposed to be draw AFTER i have finished my amazing Charizard vs. Pikachu animation, but i just couldn't help myself. I really tried to make it look better than my previous owls using the smudge tool a lot less, and actually drawing the damn outlines! I really love the way (hua hua hua my modest opinion ;D) how the small black-white feathers look like, changing the whole looks of that barn owl.
Around 9 layers, 5 hours (ugh i really have to work on my timing :/ ) and done in Photoshop CS3.

PS. Maybe someday i'll go back to this picture and correct some stuff (i.e. the branch... or some feathers..) But for now, im actually quite satisfied :'3
