When I first saw this picture,that beautiful eye is Eye contacting with me^.^ that eye is looks Real and bright .the lines around this eye are very close ,looks more dark .the Eyelid half dark, half bright to keep that eye looks .
The owl has a lot of great texture. It is made with simple geometric shapes. The owl is still powerful in black and white. It's an interesting crop of the owl. I wish I could see more of the owl like his wings.
