Zeus The Blind Owl

It is a relatively well known fact amongst my friends that I have a particular fondness for owls.  Absolutely no surprise that my facebook wall was filled with posts about Zeus. A tiny little guy born blind. Eyes that look like stafields. I HAD to sculpt him. I figured out how to get the eyes right, body color right, and the rest just happened:   

  

  

  

  

 

Though a bit cartoonish I wanted to accentuate the eyes the most. This is the real Zeus for comparison. He’s adorable:
