Night bird

I've created a sculpt and concept based on the painting that I've made. I like owls, especially the Barn owl. It was interesting and challenging to sculpt it is wings. Although I didn't have a goal to portray a realistic bird, I've learned a lot about types of feathers and anatomy of their wings. I had to redesign this painting and improve the way it will look better in the sculpted version and give it a semi stylized look.
