Ghost Owl by ark4n Ghost Owl by ark4n
Although symbolize wisdom in many cultures, owls are nocturnal animals, and therefore seen by some people as being mysterious and supernatural.

I usually don't publish the results of my speed paintings, but I like this one very much, hope you like it!

This has a very ominous look about it, the transparent look of the background makes the owl appear more ghostly and adds on to the creepy look of the picture. The blurred quality also adds to the ghostly effect. I cannot, for the life of me, look away for the owl's soulless white eyes. Very beautiful piece of artwork my fellow deviant.

It is truly an original idea and and a frightfully hypnotic piece. If I were to see this in a dark area, it would be truly frightening but at the same time, looking at this, it's very calming. It sounds odd I know, but this is how it affects me, the interpretation of what this was meant to convey may be different from this. May you have a wonderful day.

I simply love this so much, and I think the simplicity of the whole piece is what makes it work.

The blue glow of course draws you right into the owl, and can be viewed in so many different ways that it really broadens the audience appeal, which is a quality I wish I could apply to my own art.

Once the eye quickly focuses on the owl you are drawn to the total white void of his eyes and you cannot help but to stare, it is a perfect use of white, which I enjoy seeing as I like the effects of it in my own pen work.

It is this eye-locking appeal that allows the simple, yet well done, aspect of the whole piece work because it allows the viewer’s mind plenty of room to fill in the detail, well done.

The whole piece is great, and done at a skill well above my own. The only (very) slight disappointment was the lack of any color pattern on the owl’s chest, which I think could have added more information for the mind upon viewing the piece. But of course the detail of the chest is good, and the color pattern is something that feels rightly natural.
