"People often had their thoughts about her, since her whole world seemed to be created by that owl."
First submission of 2013! Hurray! I actually planned to finish this as my last work of 2012, but there were too many things in this illustration I wasn't satisfied with. Then I thought I finished it yesterday, but I was still nitpicking. And I loved it. Lay it to rest for a while and then look back at your work while you've freshened your mind. It´s been a very long while since I worked this long on an illustration.
I'm very pleased with the skyline by night. As well as the variety of colors in the background. I had a hard time with combining realism and surrealism. Which parts of this drawing can look a bit off and which need to look realistic?
To be honest: I'm still not 100% satisfied with the whole picture, but if I want to be, I would have to remake this work from scratch. Maybe I will, because I like the concept. But for now, I'll let this baby be how she is
