Early Birds by MyNameIsBrilliant Early Birds by MyNameIsBrilliant
Mother nature's alarm clocks. Guess this "old" owl won't be getting any rest.

Photoshop, many many hours, and a sore back. Good times!!

Very nice !! I love the texture ! *-*
Did you do the lines in illustrator before putting them on photoshop ? :o

I do most of the lines (paths) in photoshop.  If the shapes I create are complex I usually do that line work in illustrator given the larger amount of options as opposed to what vector you can do in PS.  Thanks again for the comments.  I really enjoyed your Moon Piece.  Such a great design!!!

Thanks ! x)

I always prefer doing vector things on illustrator and then import them on photoshop. Because there's the so great Pathfinder *-*

Yehp.  Same thing here.  I do love the convenience of having a means of creating vector paths without having to switch programs, but as I mentioned before, there are unfortunate restrictions on manipulating the paths on PS.  So the 2 go hand in hand as far as Im concerned.

Yeah, the 2 softwares are very close to each other. You just have to drag and drop something on the other software and it works immediatly. =3

Thanks again. And as much as I dislike birds (in certain regards), it was through this piece that I realized how fun birds can be to illustrate as you may have noticed.

I like owls just because the eyes can be so expressive. And they have a simple body shape.

This is a masterpiece! The choice and positioning of colors, textures, shadows, lights and objects; the out-of-focus effect, the details. The overall concept. Brilliant!

Cute ^^ I like how the eyes look like gears on the inside. The little alarm clocks add a nice touch too :D Good luck to you and the rest of us ^^

Wow!! Surprised you noticed!! There's a lot of little details in this thing, most of which probably won't be seen. Matter of fact, on most old grandfather clocks, there is a signature script font of the clock manufacturers. So for mine, it actually says "Old Timer Clock Company". I might upload a larger resolution piece so the intricate details can be seen. Thank you tough, and good luck to you as well.

This is probably my favorite of the semis. Basically, looking at this reminds me of some of the experience that comes with being a student: the alarms, the hustle, the lack of sleep. It brings me back to the days when I would be riding transit during the early hours and seeing other students with there laptops rushing to finish assignments before arriving at school. Their eyes would literally look like an owl's, wide open and fixated on the screen.

Hope this makes the top there!

Thanks CyberLogic. As far as video games are concerned, I'm sure it's been done somewhere, just may require some digging.
