TNT and Owl on cutting board

My grand mother eats a lots of vegetables, so I made her a cutting board. I had already etched her portrait on a glass with doves, from an old picture of her in the garden of my parents. This time I decided to go for an owl, symbol of wisdom.

You can see the evolution of the drawing: first the general forms, then adding the details such as the belt and the decorations of the dress.

I enlarged a lot the eyes in the end, both to insist on the chibi aspect and to increase the similarity with the owl.

My grand mother loved her present! She promised to use it and I promised to make another one when this one will be damaged!!!
