Title: Bird Of Paradise
Name: Anand Halbhavi
Hey all! This is my new concept "Bird of Paradise". The story is about The owl who belonged to the Greek goddess Athena. its said that all the Olympians died and withered away but this owl didn't. He stayed on.. after a while of solitary life he needed some company so he used to abduct people right before their weddings and take them to the tallest tree where he perched.. the deal was if the person gave a good company to the owl he or she would be given a green ticket straight to heaven.. hence "Bird of Paradise".
Was Sketched out on paper and painted on Photoshop. using Wacom Bamboo. took a month..Original size is 7000*8500 pixels.. I DIED DOING THIS!! LOL as it was my first attempt for such a large painting....
