Comm:Saving Owlowiscious by Lopoddity Comm:Saving Owlowiscious by Lopoddity
commissioned for :iconspaniel122: featuring her OC, Wild Spirit Wild Spirit by Spaniel122

Owlowiscious grows suddenly, gravely ill, and Twilight is ill equipped to care for him. But she's heard rumors about a pony that lives deep in the Everfree Forest, who happens to take care of predatory birds....

got too play around with that spooky everfree forest lighting, but since the image is so dark and shadowy, here's a flat version

the flat version is so much lighter than the shaded one.

I take a guess that Fluttershy was unsuccessful to treat him, remembering her failure to treat Philomena despite the kind of bird she was. We haven't seen Twi's pet owl very much or nearly not at all this season.

Wonderful work. Too bad Wild Spirit does have the neck feathers that Twilight adorn. If would suit her so well. Spaniel, you have a beautiful OC.

Really? That's great. You mean for chasing bird from airports or simply taking care of them as a veterinarian? Just asking.

That's so cool!! Tell me, are owls really as smart as they've been built up to be or is that just a random wives tale?

Spaniel122 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2016
They are very intelligent! Our resident owl (the one pictured with me) used to bark like a dog because he grew up hearing dogs and not hearing owls. He was fully trained with vocal commands and would fly to different perch on cue. He was wonderful <3

Is that who your mask was based on?

It's based on a Barn Owl! But similar, yes!

What happened to Zecora?  Just how many mysterious witch doctor equines are the living in the Everfree Forest?

Anyway, gorgeous work.  Not sure if I'm digging the fluffy neck on a pony, but I do love your attention to detail, and the beautiful lighting.  Twilight's expression is touching as well.  : )

I would of course be hesitant to speak for our good Lop, but I believe she's mentioned not much caring for Zecora for personal reasons, so... not sure she shows up in this verse

i really like that you give ponies fluffy necks/chests when they are flustered/upset/whatever. any particular reason why you do that?

Birds fluff up when they're stressed. They also do it when they're content!
