Ok, so admittedly this one took me way too long to actually finish. I blame it on my obsession with making everything bigger than it needs to be. This one is poster size, mainly because in some deep recess of my brain I had to make that owl something vaguely approaching real size. The final print size is around 12″ by 18″. I also realize that I’m probably the only person on earth who is reminded of the Wehrmacht’s field gray uniforms by a great horned owl’s patterning. I can live with that. They look pretty psychotic to me too. It’s a weird association, but I’m cool with it. So without further ado, Little Warriors #2 is done. Enjoy. There will be more to come. I’m feeling a Southwestern mood coming on.
New art time. I’d expected to finish this a week ago, but that was before I poured Coca Cola all over $3500 worth of computer equipment and spent a week and a half taking apart my computer and tablet to clean them out. ( Aside, tablets really don’t have a lot inside of them. ) All that’s fixed though, no major damage other than a couple bucks on q-tips and rubbing alcohol, so this is the first new image of my latest personal project completed, Little Warriors, illustrating the type of warrior each bird reminds me of. It’s a nice “for fun” project that just lets me do something interesting without blowing my brain out on heavy thinking like most of my commission projects usually do. Eventually I’m hoping to find myself a good place to present them as a gallery set, but for now this project is purely for my own interest.
