…is a species of barn owl (Tytonidae) that is native to south-eastern Australia, New Guinea and Flinder’s Island in the Bass Strait. Like other barn owls T. tenebricosa are nocturnal and inhabit moist forests where smooth-barked gum trees are present, along with ferns and a wet under-story. Greater Sooty Owls feed mainly on large arboreal marsupials like greater gliders, but will take birds, bats, and large insects as well.
Forgot I never uploaded this, the IFX cover for GIGANTIC! A collaboration betwen myself and Vinod Rams, together we make up the concept art team. I mostly just did Tyto and Vinod did the other characters. This was super fun to do.
Meet the three Barn Owl sisters, in order, Doodlebug, Ruby, and Scarlett!
These lovely birds will be a year old in July, and I remember when they were just fluffy clouds of feather! These girls are so calm and so content around people, Ruby is always prone to falling asleep if you gently pet her head! All three are awesome birds and are always popular with the visitors!
Congratulations on announcing the game, I’m happy to be a part of such a talented team. It’s hard to imagine going back to any other way of working on a project after this! Win or lose it’s been pretty rewarding.
This is Hazel, our new barn owl that was given to us a few days ago. She will need a little bit of training as her old owner trained her to fly to their shoulder, rather than the glove, and so we will need to help her get out of that habit!
Other than that she’s a lovely, and very cuddly bird!
