Bubo v2.0 by echo-x Bubo v2.0 by echo-x
Bubo v2.0 (Steampunk Portrait)

Bubo is Greek for Owl. It is currently used as the Genus name for the Horned Owls and their relatives with ear tufts. It is also the common name for the Greek owl - which is also the name for Athena's owl - which was made into a clockwork owl for the original Clash of the Titans movie. My piece is titled Bubo v2.0 because it's version 2 of the clockwork owl.

Refer to : [link]
(There is a better link - but DA's automatic link converter screws up that URL)

MODEL: Yaya Han (who also made the costume)
PLATFORM: PC and Mac
TOOLS: Intuos 3 Wacom tablet
PROGRAM: Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
EFFECTS: I don't use any 'effects'. In Illustrator I use simple strokes and Brush strokes, gradients and gradient meshes, and many many objects with varying transparency settings. In Photoshop I paint, often using the semi-transparent settings and glaze in the traditional neo-classic technique.

She goes very well with this piece:

I was just looking at my tumblr follows today and saw this image posted - [link] (took a bit to get here from there). I could have sworn it looks just like *yayacosplay. Heh. the resemblance is remarkable even if it's unintentional. :) Love the tarot card look to it.

I took the reference photo of Yaya the very first con she introduced that costume (she calls it her Steampunk Madame dress). The actual dress is black, but that didn't illustrate well so I changed it for this piece. You can find it on Yaya's website and facebook page and if you bring her one of my prints, she'll usually sign it.

Thank you for recognizing it (and for sharing the Tumblr link) - I didn't know someone posted it there.

This was the first print I bought of yours. It's still one of my favorites.
