I have added in the skull, rat, background and some more detail on the scroll.

Previous Version here.

All thoughts and ideas welcome.

    I think the wings should be more pointed, rather than round. Also, with the "rays" coming from behind the skull, it shifts the balance of the shirt and looks a bit off.

    I personally would lose the skull and the banner and just have the owl carrying the mouse in it's talons.

    I would say the bottom half needs more black to balance.

    Yeah, I am unsure of the rays. They look too clean and geometrical. Maybe something else....

    Still like the skull n' banner tho.

    Really? I'd be surprised. Having an Owl in the middle of a shirt doesn't really count as a rip does it? Maybe it does. Oh well.

    Yep. I was wondering the same thing, and now you have affirmed my thoughts. Thanks

    i agree here, and im almost disappointed in the addition of the skull, i know its indicating death but the introduction of the human element kinda kills the theme for me, I love the text and the initial owl drawing even tho i agree with the point of maybe having edges on the feathers instead of a curved edge. Keep working your progress is not in vain.

    Seems I might have to point those wings then. And will certainly add more black in. Thanks

    I wasn't saying its a rip haha. Didn't mean to offend if I did. When I said composition I meant that an owl in that position with band text between the wings and object at feet has been done a couple of times now. If you look around at it you'll see what I mean. Your drawing shares nothing other than species and composition, the style is unique.

    I got my inspiration from those other people doing bits n' pieces like this. I don't mind. Glad you don't think it's an ACTUAL rip.
