OH
MY
GOD 
I did wood burning before, and it is really difficult. HOW in the WORLD did you create something as amazing as this by wood burning?!
Also, what pen did you use and how did were you able to do the light brown shading? Did you just press against the wood really lightly? Teach me you're magical ways :U
( Sorry if this comment is annoying in any way, I'm a huge fan of your amazing art skills!)

this picture caught my eye then I read your description "owls are my favorite animals"
I wish I can say "me too" but I can't help to emphasize it because I really really really REALLY love owls lol
I have a couple hundreds of owl art, dolls, sculpture collection in my house lol.
I know I'm not the only person in the world who love owls, but I'm just still happy to see people with this same interest, and the dedication and talent to create these kinds of art work.
Really, amazing piece of art!

I love wood burning. Haven't been able to do it in years though. Not something I want to try with small children around.

If you set up a small workstation where little children can't reach and only work for an hour at a time, you'd probably be okay!

Filled to the brim with my mother's junk so she doesn't have to pay for storage while she's basically homeless.

That is super interesting, how did u burn the wood? Obviously with fire/something hot...but was it like a torch or something? I think it's super cool that u burned it and there is detailed lines, texture, gradients, and etc. It's really interesting. Did you sketch on or work from a photo? Sorry, I'm just really curious.

A wood burner is a tool you can get from most department store craft sections (like at walmart). It works a bit like a soldering iron. The tips are bronze or brass though.

Yeah, I was just curious because I have done wood carving for printmaking...but I've never heard of wood burning.
