Barn Owl by AmBr0 Barn Owl by AmBr0
The Barn Owl (Tyto alba) is the most widely distributed species of owl, and one of the most widespread of all birds. It is also referred to as Common Barn Owl.

The Barn Owl is a pale, long-winged, long-legged owl with a short squarish tail. Depending on subspecies, it measures about 2545 cm (9.818 in) in overall length, with a wingspan of some 75110 cm (3043 in). Tail shape is a way of distinguishing the Barn Owl from true owls when seen in flight, as are the wavering motions and the open dangling feathered legs. The light face with its heart shape and the black eyes give the flying bird an odd and startling appearance, like a flat mask with oversized oblique black eyeslits, the ridge of feathers above the bill somewhat resembling a nose.

Beautiful and majestic. Though I am not sure where the light is coming from. This drawing reminds me of the book Guardians of Ga'hoole namely Sora. You did the barn owls justice. Thank you for the llama badge.

I absolutely ADORE this! I love drawing owls, so much details in the faces, so much intrigue and mystery and you captured that very well in this. I can't imagine how hard it was considering all the whites in the face!

The formality of this sketch shows a simplistic, yet attentive nature towards the animal given, and also a wonderful technique achieved through shading and other strategies. A brilliant participation that should be admired and appreciated equally.
I congratulate you :aww:
