Good afternoon dear friends Steemians!!! <3 <3 <3

Yesterday after arriving from the Cyber ​​where I was publishing, I set out to create a sketch for my next job, I spent time and time thinking what to do and I did not get any good ideas, I made several sketches trying to get something good until they were made like 7:00pm and I had to go to my sister's house... she had a small celebration for my son for his 8th birthday.

Upon arriving there were some uncles and cousins ​​in addition to other family members, soon another of my uncles arrived with my cousin named David, he besides being a nice person, kind and very talented is Autistic, he loves to draw from very small. A long time ago I saw his works and they are many!!!, Really, they are quite the drawings he has made in his 16 years and they are incredibly good... Most of the time his drawings come out of his head and he does not need to see something or look for references to create your designs, you only need a sheet, a pencil and start working on your art.

Some time ago I decided that when I went outside where I would take my little sketchbook and my agenda for incomplete designs... both made by myself with recyclable materials (this is Venezuela) and my pencil and eraser, you never know where it can be born the inspiration and get a good idea to perform and it is bad not to have something in hand at the time to work it, to leave it for later when I get home, I forget... (That's me... LOL), returning to the subject, my Cousin David saw my notebook and diary and borrowed my diary and immediately started drawing and after an hour I had a cute and magical Owl ready.

Drawing by David


When I saw him, I liked it so much that I told him that I was going to make it digital to do it and publish it here for all of you, besides, I have thought if he wants it, to create an account for him and to publish his designs in this community and make known his Talent and his pretty personality.

Below, you will see the design of it and my digital version, I hope you like it all... and what do you think about David being part of the #Steem blockchain? Is it a good or a bad idea?


When I got home at night, I took some pictures to make the sketch in Ps, I made some modifications not so many to tell the truth.

When I started painting I wanted it to be in pastel colors, so the color palette I chose had many of that type, I think I almost [To never say] work with that kind of color palettes, but I wanted it to be tender and carry the essence that he made.

I spent a while making the eyes of the owl [It always takes me a long time to make them] and the feathers, which look a bit like lol hair, but no, they are feathers.

To make the owl I only used a single brush with some transparency and transfer, I made some feathers on the face and body, also a little texture on the tree.

Add some textures to the tree and the flowers, because it didn't have to be clean and David had made some flowers to the drawing.

I wanted a more nocturnal environment, so I made some adjustments and lights to get what I was looking for. For the background I copied and pasted the tree several times and put a little blur.

Thank you dear Liv for the support and for your good wishes for my son and I really appreciate that you liked it.

He doesn't have the account yet... I've wanted to create the account for David so that he can show his talent, despite being a person with autism he is a person like any other and has his passions and enjoys what he does... but I have not created the account because I think about what you say, to me any stupid one tells me something and I really do not pay attention... but he who is autistic, is different, I do not want him to be treated badly or accuse of things and make him suffer and have a bad time.


I love the eyes. So adorable. Great work, as always :)

Thank you very much @anggreklestari, I appreciate your support. ;)

Tu imaginación es un abanico de ideas tan genial @yanes94 es increíble como puedes hacer que se vea tan bonito, considero que tu personalidad debe ser bastante arriesgada y vibrante para poder traer hermosos contenidos como este, cada una de tus obras son un espectáculo, considero que no hay palabras para describir lo que haces, como te he dicho en la mayoría de tus obras, es excepcional lo que haces y como logras darle vida al dibujo. Amo los búhos ya que se consideran de buena suerte en la mujer y nos aporta sabiduría para enfrentar la adversidades, como siempre he dicho los colores que decides son un juego de sensaciones increíbles, aportan serenidad y amor.


Muchas gracias querida Nath, valoro enormemente tus comentarios emotivos, siempre me brindas apoyo y eso te lo agradezco... disfruto leyendo tus comentarios porque disfruto haciendo lo que hago y al leerte me siento feliz por saber que les gusta lo que hago. <3 <3 <3

Has creado manualidades o bisutería con el tema de los búhos? unos zarcillos de un dulce búho debe ser hermoso. <3 <3 <3

The colours and depth in this painting look great, well done!

Thanks honey... I'm glad you liked me. ;)

It's always frustrating when you sit up to get idea but it couldn't come. Am glad you finally got a piece through the help of David.
That's a magnificent creature.

Thank you dear Max, it always happens to me and very often but in the end I find an idea but in this case my savior was David... I'm glad you liked it. <3 <3 <3
