Coloured owl by Midniterain
Coloured owl
What was originally a black and white tattoo design filled with colour. 
Base design done with black pens, colour added digitally. 
Ref: Eurasian Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo) but the colours are nothing like this except for the eyes. 
Simple Owl by Midniterain
Simple Owl
I have a wolf version so I might as well draw an owl version. 
Medium: Black marker pens + pencil 
Ref: Eurasian Eagle Owl (Bubo Bubo)
Time: ~1hr 30mins
The Dance by Midniterain
The Dance
Based on the Secretary Bird, a fierce raptor endemic to Africa. 
Some say that the feathers on its head look like quills tucked behind a secretary's ear, hence, its name. 

You really never know when inspiration strikes.
I knew of this bird for years, but it took a flash across the TV screen on Animal Planet to spark something. 

Note:  I need a bigger scanner... or a better camera. The colours are a bit off and some of the details are lost despite my attempts to adjust the colours to look more like the original thing. 
Magnificent Blue by Midniterain
Magnificent Blue
A Bateleur Eagle
The real bird is not as blue, technically more black than blue. 
But it gives off a blue hue when the sun hits the right spots and I just have a thing for that subtle blue.... which I blew out of proportion for the painting. I still rather love the colours though. 
Digging through old stuff again ( done back in 2011)

Falcon Trial by Midniterain
Falcon Trial
Dug up some old stuff that was drawn 5 years ago, a trial of pens I suppose. 
Was trying out a pack of faber castell pitt pens (terra- 6 brushes- colours used shown on pic) 
I would say that terra alone cant' really produce a lot of shading to make it more dimensioned, kinda need the grey brushes to give it a little more subtle shading 
I really appreciate the faves + comments...
sorry if I seem rather rude if i don't answer your comments
I sometimes just let my account rot
and when I do log in... it's a bit hard to keep up with all the activity.

Hi there, I've used your black cat art work in a montage poster to promote the black cat. Totally non profit. Rescue centres find that people are less interested in adopting black cats, so I've made a little arty poster to distribute around facebook etc. Not published it anywhere yet, thought I should ask your permission if this is okay first.

Still undecided to change the avatar, Mid?
It's been... what?, Four years and three months, more or less?

Glad to see you're still 'round in devART. Lovin' the new art -and photos-. I Hope the Uni isn't holding you much back in art-terms.

Throwin' in a watch, by the way. Account change and all...
