bring peace to midnight by teaganwhite bring peace to midnight by teaganwhite

over the past two weeks i've been teaching myself to use illustrator (since i needed to for a commission), but this is my first finished piece using the program.


reference of the owl from a magazine clipping was used.
title from "milk thistle" by conor oberst (you bring peace to midnight like a spotted owl).



in response to many questions about how this was made; i drew the black lines with pencil and livetraced them, and then added all the color with different colored paths drawn with the pen tool set to various opacity levels. it's pretty simple actually :]

bring peace to midnight by =lostsoulx44 "The painterly look adds a unique touch. I've always thought =lostsoulx44 has had an impeccable eye for color, and her works are aesthetically soothing. I look at this owl and smile. Look at the rest of her gallery, I'm sure you'll smile too." ( Suggested by Studio-Snafu and Featured by Ikue )
