Owl - Step 2 - Reworked drawing

Something just didn't feel right. I put it off to the side and waited.

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!
