Owl

    

    These are in-progress pictures of the owl I created using a leftover set of Douglas Fir eyes. I took these pictures halfway through the processso you could see how I cut the face to implant the eyes. Our haunt always leans slightly toward humour, so the original oversized glowing green eyes work out great.
   You can see in these pictures that I hadn't finished feathering him. Badger hackles worked great--lighter colours for the belly area, some whitish ones directly under the face and on the face. After feathering the entire body and face, the eyelids were also feathered running in a more horizontal fashion and hanging off the end of the lid so they don't interfere with the mechanism and blend in lid to head.
