The snowy owl (Bubo scandiacus) lives in the arctic tundra. They can vary from almost pure white, to gray mottled, to black scalloped. I chose to make this one black scalloped to give it some texture. Stripes and feathers are always a challenge. If you like owls, you should also check out my great horned owl skin.

The pure whitish tail wasn't working for me - I added shaded striping.

Thanks for the suggestion. Working with variations of black is very hard. Perhaps someday I will attempt it.

It is hard to do too much with shades of gray. I'll try to make my next skin more colorful.

Thanks Cat! I have been thinking about updating my lion skin; I've just been too lazy to go back and revamp my old skins - it seems like I end up completely redoing them.

BTW, thanks for favoriting the owl. I've heard people say that they have seen them around in the winter. I'll keep an eye out this coming winter, maybe I'll get lucky : )
