I think that you should be more specific about your question.

Obviously i still need practice, but ive never painted pictures before. I usually paint large items like tables, shelves and such.

I think your owl is adorable. Are you using watercolor? I'm fairly new to painting also. I just started May of last year. Once I started I became practically fanatical about it. I did only acrylics up until January and then decided to try using oil, since then I do mostly oil with some acrylic backgrounds.

It is watercolor and india ink actually. I enjoy making things out of nothing. Thank you for the positive feedback :-)

I did not read the first post you put on the thread where it said you were doing a game with Indian Ink, and then developed it with acrylic. That is a great fun way to make a picture.
