The Mouse and the Owl

Piece description from the artist

In a dark forest, a mouse has just poked its nose into the wrong tree hollow. A great horned own rushes out after the mouse. The little mouse flees along a moss covered branch, as the nocturnal hunting bird chases it with its talons extended.

This image was inspired a bit from a scene in the movie, "The Secret of NIMH", which I saw when I was a kid. That was a long time ago, and I actually don't remember what was going on in the scene, I just remember a mouse approaching an old owl in the hollow of a tree. For some reason that image popped in my head recently and I decided to make a similar scene.

To create this image, I used 3D sculpting software to make the tree, as well as other 3D applications to place the animals. A good deal of digital painting was also involved.
