Owl Rocket

Using my favourite animal and fusing it with the element of fire. The plan was was to draw the owl soaring up and majestically leaving a tail flame in its wake. But the lower half just ended up merging with the fire. I used acrylic ink to paint the flames and it’s a firey mess attaching like a fleeting flamenco dress – hey rhyme!
Today’s illustration came about due to a fusion drawing by dean’z doodlez (deanzdoodlez.com) as he completes a 30 day drawing challenge about comic book characters, anime and heroes.
So here’s my version of Day 10 (Fusion) – a lot of fire because I like to be creative with fire *ahem* ink.

I will be attempting to create a new painting each in a different style during the course of summer. In which to broaden my illustrative technique. I love using ink and combining it with different mediums, but there is no acrylic this time! In doing this mini project, I want to adapt everything I’ve learnt and find something I’m comfortable with.

Ink, watercolour, pro-markers, conte.
