Sketch to Finish

I was flipping through my sketchbook the other day and came across these sketches I did for a recent custom nesting doll set I did for an Etsy customer. I was so excited for this commission because she wanted owls, and especially wanted the largest doll to be a barn owl. I love barn owls. They're both hauntingly beautiful and kind of eerie, with a very otherworldly visage. So almost right away I sat down and started sketching some birds of prey, as seen below with links to the nesting doll set I now have in my Etsy shop!
