365 Challenge: Day 8

Ash Owl (Pencil, charcoal, Prismacolor marker and bit of Photoshop).
You're probably thinking, "Ash owl?? That's just a stumpy great grey owl!" Well, if you wish to see it that way, then by all means. This piece was based off of an idle thought I had on the wildlife in Morrowind and figured, "hey, it'd be neat if they had an indigenous species of owl that's resilient to the ashy climates." Then BAM - ash owl. It's essentially a miniaturized, rounder version of said great grey owl (roughly the size of an American football).
