The Poet

The Poet  - student project

For this excersize I chose the owl.

I love the ears and the expression. On the pictures I found they all look kind of confused or surprized.

Here are some basic sketches.

Then some sketches of the details.

Finding the right position was harder then I thought. On the pictures I found the owls are either in flight or standing with its wings tucked away. Here are some sketches.

I went for the downmost sketch. It made me think of a dreamy poet, lost in the world of its own poetry, not aware of the rest of the world around him.

As Judy pointed out, the sleeves looked a bit flat, so I added some more shading.
