The Owl Princess, Gracjana Zielinska (2D)


Title: The Owl Princess
Name: Gracjana Zielinska
Country: Poland
Software: Painter, Photoshop

Another Art Challenge with friends. This time the topic was: “The Owl”. Mine is an Owl Princess as you can see.

I wanted to practice painting flowers. Which was stupid. I used lots of custom brushes for the foliage. I also used a ref for the owl (random google image), as I never painted one. And a ref for flowers, of course (my own). Or actually a few. And I think I based initial tiara design on some photo, but I changed it so much, I’m not sure if it even resembles it. I still don’t know what got into me that I decided to paint such complicated foliage.

I’m quite happy with her owl-face. And it was fun to do something more stylised and painterly this time :slight_smile:
