Owl Sketches

Just in case you were wondering how I am spending my Sunday this is it. Designing owl patterns for the Spooktacular Swap. I have come up with 4 different designs (3 really since 2 and 3 are the same but slightly different. Now I need your help. I can't decide which one I like the best. I may just do several of each but I want to know what you think.

I did the first one in pieces. I saw an similar owl on a scrapbooking page but I drew this freehand (please be kind, I am NOT an artist). I figured I needed to put him all together so you can see him in the next photo. He would go on the green you see in the background. This is Owl #1

I also saw a pic online of an owl like this one but again I enlarged and drew him freehand. I think he would go on either navy, black or purple since he has a moon. He is my first attempt at the owl and is slightly longer bodied than number 3. This is owl #2.

As I said this is the second attempt at this owl and his body is slightly shorter Owl #3.
Owl 03
Finally my creepy owl and totally original. I would use the same purple and orange for his eyes like in my nine patch. Not sure of the background. I cut all the green but am thinking either orange or purple. What do you think? Owl #4.

These are my owls. I need to make a choice soon as I need to get working on them. Please help me decide!

I vote for #2 as well, he looks more "owly", lol.

I'll stay tuned for the next stage!

I really like 3 & 4. I collect owls of all kinds but mostly glass owls (over 200 hollow, glass owls). Are these going to be applique?

I like Owl#2.

#1 looks like the *give a hoot...don't pollute* owl...remember him ?!

i like number 4's attitude!

and i am sooo glad that there is someone ELSE who has not finished the Spooktacular blocks besides ME ... Melissa has been waiting for me to finish so we can mail them together - she even cut some squares for me today so i would work on them (yeah, that's why i'm on the computer - shhh - don't tell her)

I like them all - but 2 and 4 the best. I like the longer body on 2. Number one doesn't seem to go with the others, although I like him.
If you use an orange background for 4, use purple eyes and vice versa.
These are really special, Pam! Love them!

The first is for children, the second and third look a bit under the influence of alcohol (although great bodyshape) so the last one is my favourite! But compliments for drawing these; i can't draw a thing *lol*

I like 2 and 4. Cute, cute! How are you going to make them? I can hardly wait to see them.

Wow, hard choice, I can't draw a thing, no help here, I love them all!! Sorry

Barb said...

Definitely number 4! He is a great owl that you could embellish many ways--even in a very funny manner!

Pam I can't believe you got the owl pictures to show up. And what wonderful Deer picture you took.

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

I like #2 best...the feet and the position/size of the moon. But I also like #4, and #3 except I really like the feet on #2... :)

I wonder which one you chose?
