Looking through my stash for pictures of fascinating eyes, I came across this little guy. He's an Eastern Screech Owl, a tiny thing by owl standards--only 6 to 10 inches tall. He comse with a BIG voice to go with those BIG eyes. If you've seen the movie "My cousin Vinny" then you have heard a screech owl.
I found this image on Google and altered several versions in Fotosketcher and overlaid and blended them, I painted the background with Photoshop brushes.
