The Eagle Owl

This majestic fellow took me over a week of muddling, puddling dabbling and I almost gave up.
 The eyes were too big :


Or his head as too small
His body was waaaay tooo long :
Or was his head too small . . . .

Anyway, after more then a week I was happy with him, I love his pose !

 And for comparison, I made another Barn Owl.
You can see the ( poor) stuffed one and the not quite finished one.
The Eagle Owl is huuuuuuuge !

  6. Gut zu wissen, dass dir die Proportionen auf Anhieb auch nicht immer so gelingen wollen. :-)
    Manche Sachen muss ich auch manches Mal wieder ändern weil es an dem Tag einfach nicht gelingen will.
    Aber du hast dann ja doch mal wieder eine perfekten Uhu hingezaubert, Toll.
    Er scheint auch sehr stolz auf sich/dich zu sein.

    Liebste Grüße Jessi
