Illustration Friday: Tales and Legends


This is an illustration I did from the children's book titled "Why the Owl has Big Ears". It is a native american tale of why the owl is such a peculiar little animal.

Wonderful! The colors are so vibrant...even though it's night. You did a great job with the halo effect of the moon. Great job with the mood as well.
