Common Barn Owl plush version 2.0! It was sold as a set with the a moleskine journal
I illustrated at a silent auction to benefit the WSU Raptor Club. The plushie is loosely based on Widget
, a bird that I work with. The legs and wings are partially wired so he is somewhat poseable, but it is a display piece and would not stand up to much wear and tear.

This tutorial is free for you to use, so long as you you credit me (even if you modify it!).
There have been a few modifications from the original
(he's taller, the wings were done differently and the proportions fixed a bit, the tail is a bit different, I fixed a problem I had with the eyes pulling on the back of the head, and a few minor other details), and although I'm still not 100% satisfied with it, he turned out very cute in his own distinctive way!
