It's Owls' Time!



In this contest, your task is to not quite portray an owl, but include it in a depicted (or described) situation, where the owl (or owls!) is just one of the picture's or writting's elements. An owl watching a murderer and his poor victim or sitting in an opened window of witch's hut? Or something else?


In this contest we've got a special folder for the entries! It can be accessed here. If your submission gets accepted, I will edit this entry and your piece will be featured here, so everybody could see how awesome things you can do. There are allowed all the techniques you may find in our gallery, and remember, it must fit The Rules.


    :bulletblack:Deadline: the 20th of September 2012, 10 p.m. GMT.
    :bulletblack:Limit of submissions: two pieces per member.
    :bulletblack:The entry can be old or new.
    :bulletblack:You must be a member to participate.



How to vote - first, second and third place - are choosen by you. Every entry have its' own number, so voting looks like this: in a comment you write three (no more and no less) numbers and points - three points for your most favourite one, two points for your preferable second place and one point for the third. So it should look like this:

10. 3 points
21. 2 points
4. 1 point


Remember - all of the submissions deserve your attention, which means also reading the literature ones. Voting will be closed after two weeks (October 4th). The deviation with the highest number of points is the winning one. After the votes are counted, I shall choose a deviation which gets the distinction (from all the submissions except the 3 winners).




Prizes.


All the winners will have a feature in our group. Also, they will be featured by Sieskja, Meredyth, akitku, NoctiLuna, erinclaireb, STelari, Realm-of-Fantasy, Through-Emilys-Eyes.

    :bulletblack:First Place - a sketch from STelari - a sketch from erinclaireb - a painting from Sieskja - 30 points from Finnguala - literature request from ravenwritingclaw :bulletblack:Second Place - a sketch from STelari - a painting from Sieskja - 25 points from Finnguala :bulletblack:Third Place - a sketch from STelari - a painting from Sieskja - 20 points from Finnguala :bulletpurple:Distinction - a portrait from STelari - a journal skin made by STelari (or a sketch) - a painting from Sieskja - 25 points from Finnguala



Good luck and have a nice day,
Telari

4. The WizardFace hidden by his cowl,
An aged wizard shuts his book,
Watched only by his owl.
A tall, grey, wizened fowl,
He's caught in her unblinking look,
Face hidden by his cowl.
His bones creak, groan and growl,
As up he stands, with hand on crook,
Watched only by his owl.
He hears the cold wind's howl,
The squawks of the portending rook,
Face hidden by his cowl.
That hood conceals a scowl.
He lifts a locket from its hook,
Watched only by his owl.
Through dark night he does prowl,
A spell locked in that charm he took,
Face hidden by his cowl,
Watched only by his owl.

10.Six Owls by akitku  11.No Match For Her by isdira  12. Meals at DuskAn owl parliament
drifting over the woods
during a long dusk,
in search of new nests.
These icy ones
scoured for their meal
but found one
taking place before them
as they saw a man standing over
another man, drained of his blood
and left, lifeless, to rot in plain sight
though the frost can preserve a corpse.
The "living" man laughed in joy
and dissolved into a mist
from which flittermice escaped.
The scandians, lying in wait
attacked the bat colony for food.
Blood-sucker - stabbed and
torn apart,
like the one before.
Reprisal.

You can add a painting by me for the three winners, and the distinction also, if it's possible (:
And a feature, of course.

I think I will not participate this time - I win too much x) - even if I particularly like that theme! One time my beloved and I saw an owl in my garden. I had only the time to see it silently fly away, and I never saw it again.. ):

:iconstelari:
STelari Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Oh, I'm sure the owl comes to that garden in night (: We've got owls near my house, as it's surrounded with abandoned fields that are grown with forests now, it's a perfect place for them, just like for weasels, squirrels, hares, deer and that sort of animals.

Thank you! I shall list it now. And don't worry about the places. The fact that I'm not participating is quite understandable, although I've seen leaders of groups participating in their group contests, but since the places are up to vote, I'd not worry about it if I were you (:

You can't know how I envy you!!
Living so closely with the nature is a dream for me. Here there are only towns and fields, and sometimes a slag heap. We can only see rabbits, partridges and when we are lucky, pheasants, hares and buzzards (by very far). So an owl, it's wonderful!
I often go out by night, with the hope to see it again.

Yes, I understand but it gets on my nerves when someone is winning each contest! I don't want to take that risk x)
