I miss o rly memes. Inking timelapse video here.

I like kestrel because they’re fluffy and round but a falcon instead of a titmouse.
Found some manilla paper for textured background, though it’s really not obvious in these photos.
Commissions from ECCC!
Thanks to everyone who came out to say hi. It was a lovely weekend and I’m glad I got to see so many friends!
Inktober #15: O is for Osprey!
You were brave. You were strong. You were good. You mattered.
Did you know it’s been fourteen years.
“We should probably tell Tadokoro-san to cut it out with the owls and mistletoe, but it’s really funny, hmm?”
More T2 Advent Calendar.
Barn owls have always looked creepy to me for this reason.
30 minutes, reference.
Studies and prep sketches for the raptor piece and random lettering. Originally the baldie was to be in between the red-tail and the right osprey, but HAHAHA yeah putting the biggest bird in the middle didn’t work out.
Compiled process shots for It’s a Raptor Convention.
Final inks, including digital corrections.
I’m sure all the relative sizes are way off. I don’t think ospreys are that big compared to baldies, and the harrier should probably be smaller? But obviously it is impossible to find ref of these dudes chillin’ on a branch together, soooo. <_<
Ugh. I didn’t mean to go so overboard with the inks because every time I do, I have no idea how to color it. :D
In which Kiri questions life decisions. Follow along on Twitter for up-to-the-minute whining about how drawing is hard!
Oh geez, left osprey’s tail should have come down way further like I had it in the sketch. Why did I not do that. sdhajdhasjkdhajks!!
