EDIT: I made the head bigger... it looks a little weird to me but so many people kept saying to do it so I just did it. Right now it looks like the body is too small, but that may be just me looking at it with more domestic house cat anatomy.
Hope it looks a bit better though?
Okay... can we talk about how effing cute Saw whet owls are? Seriously -- farm9.staticflickr.com/8471/80… 2.bp.blogspot.com/_Jqc3hK6pKng… i.imgur.com/GccwSmF.jpg wctbirds.files.wordpress.com/2…
Alright... well, I decided I needed a little griffin character... and so I present you with Peach; the Saw whet owl-bobtail cat hybrid.
I was going to give her taloned front feet but it didn't quite work very well so I got rid of them and just gave her clawed front feet instead.
I'll be colouring her as soon as I have time but I wanted to get an idea down for her body and such. She looks kind of fat but she's supposed to be fluffy :U
Haha fluffy and feathery ;___;
Combining owl and cat anatomy is harrrrrd D| Ah well, twas fun and she'll get colours eventually X3
PS: Yes, I did copy paste the wings from a previous sketch I had laying around... I'll make them look better later ._. For now they look obviously awful... ah-hem!
Also, I will be messing with proportions as well. a few people mentioned the head being small and the body being too big. I messed around a bit already to see how it would look if I resized either and I'm not getting a good look with that (it keeps looking off compared to references I have as well). Perhaps I'll try later before I do anything else with it... we shall see.
Thanks for the tips though!
