The ultimate reference guide for bird lovers or artists, this final volume in the Denny Rogers Visual REference Series presents 200 meticulous and anatomically accurate drawings that capture each magnificent owl from every angle and in multiple poses. Comprehensive drawings, color charts and photographs - both in flight and still.
In over 300 clear, detailed color photos and easy to follow descriptions, master carver Jeff Moore takes readers through all of the steps necessary to create a beautiful, life-like screech owl in wood. Beginning with a pre-shaped blank to simplify the roughing out process, techniques used in both high speed texturing and wood burning are shown. Instructions are also provided for creating feet with a realistic appearance complementing the habitat base. Following the carving stage, instructions are provided for airbrushing and brush painting techniques necessary to complete the screech owl and bring the carving to life. Additionally, the pattern is provided, along with detailed reference photos of a live screech owl.
