Bio-Mechanical Owl

OWLFor this project, I knew from the beginning, that I wanted to do something kind of abstract. This was actually really exciting because I have never made an abstract piece before or even experimented with it. My main goal was to create a bio-mechanical owl, that could either be directly seen as an owl or to a viewer can be seen as something completely different. The basis of this was to provoke thought and to have the viewer generate their own stories behind it.

I used spacial perspective to bring things forward or to push them back. This was necessary in order for me to create depth and dimension. I applied what I learned, when doing the chair drawing, to the creation of this owl in order to better the image overall. Another thing that I payed attention to are the tones in this image. It was crucial that there was a wide range because if there is not, then the drawing will become flat. Also, I wanted to focus on contrast because if you have just the right amount it will catch the eye and really generate attention. The contrast in this image is about 55-45, which overall is not bad whatsoever.
