Wow, Charles!! I love, LOVE this! Just look at him, all majestic and proud... You did wonderfully with his posture, the face and the robe-like wing. Bravo! :)

Charles Santoso said...

Hi Joe,
Yes I was. I was one of the concept artist for the movie :) This image has no connection to the movie at all though hehehe :D

Junko Miyakoshi said...

Wow, another amazing piece! Love the facial expression :)
How long does it take you to paint something like this??

Cheers,
Junko

He's cool, and not just because I'm a bird lover. Reminds me of the time an owl came down the chimney of my family's house and flew around the living room. You couldn't hear the wings flapping. They're super-stealthy fliers.

Charles Santoso said...

Junko: Thanks, Junko.. as for the time.. it really depends on the deadline/time that i've got - and the level of finish that I aim at. As usual, the idea/design stage takes the longest time. For this one, I had the idea in mind already.. so I did a couple of quick sketches and then painted it in... uhm.. maybe about 5 hours.. :)

Ted: Yeah.. owls are silent flyers aren't they? do you know the type of owl that came to your house? :D

Ted Blackman said...

Screech owl. I caught him in a towel and let him out the front door. Or maybe it was a 'she' since it was trying to make a nest out of our chimney. Barn owls are the coolest, though. Do a barn owl next!

Charles Santoso said...

ah.. screechy little owl.. :D they're cool.

btw, have you seen this owl video?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Es52WQKLumI

Junko Miyakoshi said...

Charles,
Thanks for answering my question!
Only 5 hours.. wow. When I paint digital, because it's so easy to go back and fix, it takes me forever to finish!
Really great work :) I want to see more!

Best,
Junko
