Birds of Prey - Owls / Хищни птици - бухалът

A while ago, I found an owl sketching tutorial on YouTube that looked too difficult. But then I saw the header picture of the February inspiration post on Art Elements - Birds of Prey - and decided to give it a try.
Преди време бях намерила уроче в YouTube за скициране на бухал, което ми се стори трудничко. Но след като видях заглавната снимка от февруарското вдъхновение в блога на Art Elements - "Хищни птици" - реших да опитам.


Then I made two simple pairs of earrings with ceramic and Czech glass owls.
Направих и два чифта семпли обици с керамични бухалчета и такива от чешко стъкло.


My grand project for this post should've been an Owl pendant. I was planning to rework one I had designed and made earlier with the wrong wire gauge. Sadly, I couldn't find the inspiration to do it. Enters my Owl Pendant prototype.The design is entirely my own and I am especially proud of the wings.
Големият проект за тази публикация трябваше да е висулка-бухал. Направих я преди време, но избрах тел с грешна дебелина. Не успях да намеря вдъхновение да я преработя. Затова ви показвам прототипа. Моделът е изцяло мой, особено съм горда с крилете.


And last, but not least, an old project of mine from 2012, made of 90% recycled materials (original tutorial). It's a pincushion but I hate to see it all "stabbed" with pins :)
И накрая, един стар проект от 2012 г., изработен почти изцяло от рециклирани материали (оригиналното уроче). Това е игленик, но ми е жал да го гледам набоден с карфици :)

  1. They are all so cute!
    I can totally understand you don't want to poke the last owl with pins.

  3. The pin cushion owl is indeed to cute to poke with pins. The earrings and owl pendant are fabulous. Your owl sketch is truly wonderful.

    1. Thank you, Tammy! Am I wrong or this month was too short? I didn't have (take) the time to make more intriguing jewelry but still, I'm pretty happy with what I accomplished :)

  4. Um, that owl sketch is pretty spectacular! I'm amazed at it. Oh, and your "pincushion" owl - so very cute!! I think these are all great projects with a lot of variety. You got more done this month than I did for sure!!

    1. Thank you, Hope! I had the ambition to also try and color it but the month slipped through my fingers :) My other projects were either simple or made before the inspiration was announced but I had to share. Besides, I hope to get the motivation to rework that pendant.

  5. You do have a gift for drawing, Rozantia! And of course, anything wire catches my eye, great weaving there.

    1. Thank you, Alysen! I do hope to rework the pendant rather sooner than later and show my idea in a much better shape :) I didn't know I could draw (following a tutorial) until recently and am quite pleased myself, too :)

  6. Oh, I'm so glad to see I'm not the only one that makes cute animal pin cushions but then can't bear to stab them! All the owl cuteness is making me so happy this month! I really love the earrings with the small glass owls. I bought a strand of the same shape about 20 years ago and I'm so glad to see them coming back around so I can stop hoarding my last few! Thank you for playing along with us again!

    1. That's what hedgehog pincushions are for, Lindsay :) I got these glass owls in a destash event but I do think I have to use them up, my hoard is too insignificant but sometimes I feel overwhelmed with it!

  7. I find your earrings super cute. The blue owls look like they belong in a totem pole. What material are they made up off?

  8. I would have the same problem stabbing the cute owl pin cushion! I would feel awful! ;) I love your owl sketch!
    The earrings are really cute and I love your wire design! I hope you will show us the version with the right wire gauge :)

  9. Such a cute pin cushion owl :D Your sketch is really good, so much detail in it. I agree the wings on your owl design is fabulous, I think you need to find that inspiration and finish him :D

    1. Thank you, Laney! I really feel proud of my sketches, never in my life I believed I can do something like that :) As to the owl, I'll do my best :)

  10. The owl sketch is just amazing, Rozantia! Your jewelry projects are really pretty, I hope you finish the wire pendant someday, coz it looks gorgeous already. And the owl pincushion was a bad idea, lol, I'll never be able to poke that cutie with a pin either. :) Thank you for the tutorial by the way, I'll see if my sister would like to take a stab at it. (See what I did there... ;) )

    1. Thank you, Niky! I always get a kick out of how the eyes of the critters I sketch look so expressive! I "blame" it on the good tutorials :)

  12. Love your sketch of the owl - it turned out great. You are correct - the pin cushion is too cute to fill with pins :)
