More wip of that dracostryx icon. Doing another cleanup pass, this time in TVpaint. Small corrections, anatomy fixes, just all around perfectionism.

My brain is very tired now and I’ll get to making the tail not look crap later. And linearting. And color.

I’ve been drawing an aweful lot of owls lately…the left is a mashup of some of my faves, barred, short earred, barn, and horned. I guess I’m calling them harvest moon owls for now. Bottom is Tonatiuh. Yay for instagram pics.

Welp. I finished him.

I named him Gregory.

He looks better in real life though.

He’s going to the county art show now.

I know he’s not the best but I hope I at least get some recognition. There aren’t many mascot makers here in WV and the ones that are usually make very low quality ones.

This was the first bird suit I made. So yeah his beaks a bit crooked.
