Unwise Drawing

The idea of drawing this sprung to my whilst I was browsing tumblr. I gathered reference images together and surrounded myself with them. after sketching around I created a good pose, I then layered drawings ontop of eachother getting increasingly accurate after each pass. This drawing took about 2 days to draw and edit:) drawing was done in manga studio and the colours and composition were changed in Photoshop.
“Unwise”, I have called it this because the owl (symbol of wisdom) has been shot with an arrow representing unwise decisions of human violence. This drawing has been rather popular on deviant art and I have received much positive feedback. http://mezwik.deviantart.com/art/Unwise-Owl-shot-with-an-arrow-drawing-417620044
