Stormy the Snowy Owl
About this creation
Heres Stormy the Snowy Owl, The first in my North American / Canadian Series of Birds.

I thought it was about time I built another Bird of Prey and Owls are my favourites.

The Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus) is a large owl of the typical owl family Strigidae. The The bird is also known in North America as the Arctic Owl, Great White Owl, Icelandic Snow Owl, or Harfang. The Snowy Owl is the official bird of Quebec.

It is one of the largest species of owl and in North America is on average the heaviest owl species. The adult male is virtually pure white, but females and young birds have some dark scalloping; the young are heavily barred, and dark spotting may even predominate. Its thick plumage, heavily feathered taloned feet, and colouration render the Snowy Owl well-adapted for life north of the Arctic Circle.

I have created a new CUUSOO project Hedwig, Harry Potter's Owl as I'm sure Harry Potter fans would love to own one of these ;-)

I will also be adding him to my LEGO Bird Project on CUUSOO. Please support the project if you haven't already, I'm nearly on 3,000 supporters but there's still a very long way to go!

Stormy was great fun to sculpt and I am very happy with the way he turned out!















I hope you like him! What do you think?

Whoa, all those turns and angles are really amazing, surely another of my favorite birds from you, Tom. I especially love the very owlish expression of its face and the junction between head and body. It's great to have the head facing the viewer and the body viewed from the side.

Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= Oh its Hedwig! She's BEAUTIFUL! She needs some owl post, perhaps a little brown paper parcel tied up with string for her to be delivering. Well done on the perfect design here, her legs especially, the way you've made them look so fluffy is remarkable and there is so much life behind her expression. Undoubtedly my favourite of all your birds thus far. I'll head over right now to support her.
Thanks Leda, I thought you might like. I love you're idea of the little parcel, that would look great, or maybe a scroll tied with ribbon. I'll work something out!

Quoting Lemming the Sith Another great bird! Do you take them apart or do you just have a lot of pieces and/or buy pieces? I just think it would be cool to have a collection of these things and not have to take them apart.
No I will never take them apart! (even though I have to spend a lot of money on bricks) They are now pieces of art that I plan to exhibit, in fact I have my first exhibition in my home town next week, it's very exciting! Thanks for your comment!

Quoting Quad ????? How is it you keep making these guys even better than the last? Great choice opting for studs.
Practice makes perfect QUAD ;-) I don't really know, I am learning new techniques all the time and sometimes the pieces just fall into place. LEGO is the greatest puzzle of all time, it's so much fun! And by the way happy 80th Birthday LEGO, I'm so glad you were conceived!

Quoting Brody Allen Well Sculpted
Thanks Brody, I loved sculpting the wing sections, they are slightly different to each other to give them a more natural look, I think I should have made his underbelly a bit more fluffy now I look at the pictures, but he's good enough for me, on to the next one. Hopefully it will have the same reaction Stormy is getting, I have a few beauties up my sleeve :-)

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Ravishingly beautiful!;) Your best yet methinks. Looks just like the one from Harry Potter. The overall shape is wonderful and the way the tail feathers fan out just a little bit really adds to the lifelikeness (not sure if that’s a word).

Oh My, you have just reasserted yourself as the master of the avian build. I loved Deus's homage yesterday (you've spawned a genre methinks), but this is in a different league, even to your own earlier builds. Wonderful expression, and somehow you've made those studs look downy. :D

I had a feeling that your next one would be a snowy owl, but I was not expecting something this good. All the curves are very well executed. As is with your previous owl, so is the head. 5/5 -LB Jr.
