Yes, this is another picture drew of Eve of the Pure Ones. In this one she is the High Tyto. Look at that grand armour and cape. Sorry I couldn’t resist the black, red and white theme, those are my favourite colours. Eve is one evil owl. >:3

This one took some time, I spent somewhere between 24 and 30 hours on this one over 4 days. I said in my last piece I uploaded that I had had enough of uploading sketch and I wanted to do something serious with my new pen tablet. So I did and this was the result. I was just going to be another sketch but then I thought I would do something in colour for once. I decided to push myself as I find digital art difficult anyway.

I found the wings very hard to draw; I was stuck on them for a while. My favourite part to draw was the armour, so shiny.

I used two tablets for this one, as the first three days I was at my Mums house with my Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch and Laptop.

You can tell you worked hard on this piece! Your hard work and time and dedication payed off! This is such an awesome piece!! I like that you can see the the marks in the wings and it gives it a nice textured look to it! I also like the indentations on the wings because they do look like the lawyers of feathers that the owls have. I am not sure if you did this on purpose or not though because I do not know the story behind this drawing but the left side of the armor is much darker then the right side, also the left wing is much darker then the right, so if you did that on purpose Good job because I am sure it fits your story, but if you did not I would try to work on that because it is very noticeable.

I like that you stuck to a darker background because it. The red cape looks striking against the silver! :) Great color choices :)

This is supremely amazing, despite being your first try at digital art. The feather details give her wings a soft and elegant look, and the lighting composure is perfect for Eve in this drawing. Her body armor and cape give her a look of top-priority and all in all this is a beautiful owl. The armor and helmet are unique and most definitely suit her and her personality; in her eyes I noticed a look of fierce nobility, and that she will kill you when she gets the chance. The chain around her neck is stunningly realistic, and I love the flow of the cape behind her, it gives you the illusion that she has just swooped down onto her throne, ready to lead her Pure Ones into war against the Guardians of Ga'Hoole. I believe she would make a much better High Tyto than Nyra or Kludd ever could, she has way more potential.

Once again, this is a stunningly beautiful drawing and I can't wait to see more from you, =CommanderEVE
