Welcome back to another new challenge post for AuroraWings Challenge Blog. Our theme for this fortnight is Furs and Feathers and I have chosen one of Mitzi’s elegant masked ladies for my project.
This is Owl Masquerade and you can buy her in the Etsy shop here.
I coloured her with Copics and Promarkers, adding some extra shading with Polychromos pencils. I used Liquid Pearls to highlight her hair accessories and mask. The background paper is from Graphic45’s Secret Garden Collection.
I usually shy away from feathers and fur (LOL) as they can be tricky to depict, but I found that ‘stippling’ the pens worked well to suggest the shading of the barn owl’s feathers here, and by keeping it simple I am happy with the results.
Once again, we would love to see you join in the challenge with us. You may use any image you like (following the theme of course!), but if you use AW images you may enter up to three times. Thanks for stopping by!!
