Night falls by Askhari Night falls by Askhari
Once I was told, if you look into the owls eyes, you might never be able to look away again...

I've been pretty lazy with visiting deviantArt these last years, and was totally surprised today to find this old sketch of mine to have gotten a DD - Thank you very, very much for that, for all the favs & comments and everything, that's amazing!

As I got some request I added a print, hope you enjoy :)

Night falls by ~Askhari is a beautifully stylised vector of an owl in the night. Check out the way the feathers have been rendered with staggered gradients... simply beautiful. ( Featured by ChewedKandi )

This owl is a great depiction of one that I imagined in a story I am developing. Nice work!

Owls are so very pretty. I like seeing them at the zoo, but not when they are confined in small cages. A habitat is better even if it does have limitations for the owls' freedom as it pertains to their flying around. This is just beautiful. Nicely done :hug:

could look nice, I'm with you - sadly it was a scribble and the paths & layers are a mess, don't know if I can sort it out to make other color versions that look good ;)

Why then, poor owl!
Do you mean it has to wait there staring back at you until you starve or something?
Ha ha, sorry for the stupid remark, it just needed to come out...
Really good one, I love owls, and I haven't seen anything like this before...
Kudos

Well done! The cool shades of the image are crisp and clean, and the owl looks like I always imagine them: a wise and watchful guardian. Great work! Faved!
