When I came back to the owl drawing earlier this week, it looked a bit off.
I needed that time away from it to see the eyes were a tad big and slightly cross-eyed.
Better to catch it now. If I had rushed into painting this piece after the first step, it would've been too late to make any needed adjustments.
After tweaking the original drawing.
While reworking the bird's eyes--my old-school house music blaring, I felt like I was bringing this owl to life.
That's how I knew it was finally ready.
The next step will be laying down the paint.
No turning back now!
