At the first time I look at this picture, the owl looks a little "nerd" and funny, but the more I stare at it, the more I feel there's something sad, something confused. It's like people lost in a strange world, when nobody knows them, nobody cares, everything is strange. But that's just some feelings flow in my mind.
The color is pure but it's a bit lighter than it should be. The too-white-background makes it difficult to notice the whole picture for the longer time.
The position is interesting. Simple but impressed. It doesn't have to be a phoenix or a willow, just an owl on the pole. However, it can describe many different levels of idea. And you succeed in doing it. :)
What do you think?

Aaawww thank you so much, my dear Alina!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::iconaawplz::iconflyingheartsplz: Yes, I wanted to give depth of field to the whole thing, so doing that to the pole was the best approach for me, I'm very happy to know that you like it!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::love::iconflyingheartsplz:

Oh. That's so cute.
I love owls. Their smart eyes...
And even this big log doesn't distract the viewer from this animal.
Good job.

And coloring is something that you can learn, in my personal case, one of my weaknesses is coloring :nod: ... And I found tutorials that teach us about that, for example this one ---> [link] ... it's very useful!!! :aww: I hope you like it :hug:

Really, every time I see an illustration from you, it always leave me stunned. The realism of the owl is amazing, I also made my husband see it and he sends you his compliments too! :D
I also love how out of focus the fence is, it adds a lot more depth to the whole picture.

:love: I have already got acquainted with this wonderful creation. :love: It's a great digital artwork! :heart: Gentle muted colors work well to create a serene atmosphere. The only color accent are the eyes of the character revealing the philosophical background of the picture. Despite the fact that this work can be easily presented as an illustration for the book for children, it can become a deep visual experience for the adults..
Resolutely, it's my favourite one! :heart: :shamrock: :sun:
