You may think is is wrong in so many ways because they are anthros, i personally donīt care. This is a speedpaint

I wanted to try Soren and Gylfie (from Guardians of Gaīhoole) in Anthro versions. But based on the books.

Is kinda weird since i read the books after seeing the movie (not before) and i found that i loved the books and hated the movie. Which totally doesnīt make justice to them, is horriibly chessy, not well adapted plot and even some characters species were changed because "the other species was more pretty" erm yeah. And a lot of other things more that make me totally donīt like that movie.

So no, i donīt like Ga' Hoole movie....a bit. But i like the books.

I read the books several years before seeing the movie. There are parts that I enjoy about the movie- even if there are other moments I fast forward through- almost any part with Twilight and Digger until the very end where they act more themselves- This picture of anthro Soren and Gylfie is beautiful. I'd love to see one done of the entire Chaw of Chaws . Great work, beautiful lighting.

I totally agree, I read the books first and went into the movie expecting greatness. I came out utterly disappointed. they could hav made it so much better

I actually loved the movie a hell lot. Although this is coming from someone who hasn't read the books, Then again, not being a fan of the books before the movie, I think my opinion on it was based on judging the movie as a movie by its own merits and not so much as an adaptation. Not that there's anything wrong with either way of judging, though. I guess it's only natural for fans of the original material to judge an adaptation by how loyal it is to the material. So long as they keep in mind that the movie adaptations are made with the non-fans in mind: they're not making a movie for the followers of the books, they're making one for movie followers who want to see an animated fantasy movie, which happens to be based by the books, so of course things would have to change. After all, it is a known rule that what works on books doesn't always work on movies, and also vice-versa.

Anyway, that's about my opinion on the movie. I'm with all the people before me who think there's nothing wrong with the anthro deal. :) I think it's overall a nice and pretty pic.

I have to agree, When i saw the movie i was horribly disappointed with it.Same with the game,they put st.aggys in the beaks.

You know it's something when you see the movie before reading the books, but you like the books better. The animation in the movie was stunning, and the style of it was good, but otherwise... D: Don't try and fit six books in one movie. D:
AND KLUDD WASN'T EVEN METAL BEAK. And then "Where's St. Aggies? D:"
OneLifeRemaining Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
aha! I knew it was Soren and Gylfie as soon as i saw it! :D Looks aweosme! I dont see anything wrong with it though.
And I totally know what you mean. When I saw the movie I wanted to kill someone. They totally changed the plot >< Nyra totally contradicts herself!She's supposed to lead the Pure Ones who are all Tytos but nooo she has to lead St. Aggies's ><
Totally hated it.
Sorry for the rant haha.

vards Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2011
Agree with everything you've said 'bout the movie 'n books... I also began reading after I've watched the movie,
and am shocked how their censor turned the story into a completely different... story. But I still love it for the killer
animation and graphics.

Great pic)) Even if I dislike anthro... Still faving!))

Please do draw more LotG fanart!))

This is so beautiful! The paint strokes and the palette! It's a really interesting take on the story and I love it! :3!
I read all the books a second time in preparation for the movie. I have to say I was really let down by the movie but I still loved the effects.

I did a barn owl anthro too and everyone keeps bugging me about that movie. I haven't even seen the movie! Barn owl faces just look cool! Movies kinda ruin art concepts don't they?
My owl man doesn't look as impressive as yours, but do you think you could take a look at it? [link]

I loved these books when I was little! I haven't seen the movie yet, though.
Shadow-Okami Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2011
This is beautiful, and I love what you did for them as Anthros. I didn't mind the movie, it did bring some of the luster that was to the world, but it still.. sucked storyline wise. D: But still, very very lovely. >w<
TarriPup Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I think this is still a beautiful piece, and even though they are anthros, isn't it the whole point of art to bend the rules of reality and test the boundaries? :meow:

The movie was spectacular, and I do think this piece is just as magnificent!! :)
peteryes Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2011
Oh, this is lovely, I adore the Ga'Hoole owls :'D!!
I recently finished the book series (they were my favorite as a kid, but I never finished all 15 books), and as silly as it sounds, there were times I pictured all the owls exactly like this, anthro xD;
(Mostly when they mentioned blacksmithing and other things that I simply couldn't picture without the addition of extra limbs XD)

Such a breath-taking scene.
ol-bear Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
it creeped me out at first, but it's just SO GREAT! It's just too amazing!
oh and it's funny cause I read the books first and still somehow liked the movie. I definitely like the books more and was extremely annoyed that they made all those random why'd they go and morph the two enemy groups together?! grimble's death seemed so insignificant (i mean they spent like NO time at Aggies, or whatever the movie called it) and that cut me deep cause I love the guy so much! there were so many things wrong with it (digger's personality was the most messed up out of the four)...and soren....falling for otulissa....BLEH!
sorry bout that rant but I could go on and on. i'm glad you bothered to read the books though and even happier to know that you like them more!
Edheloth Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2011   Digital Artist
I totally feel you on that: the movie has A LOT of plot fails and thatīs for sure. And has nothing to do with the books almost. I see it now just as a kiddies movie to be a 3D comercial blookbuster. because the only good thing i could see on it is the 3D effects and the fact that attracted more attention to the books ^^ that are actually, what is worth.
Thank you!
ol-bear Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
agree with you on everything. it's awesome that there's people out there who appreciate the books more. what ticked me off tho was that people saw the previews and thought "wth! owls forging?! owls reading?! WHAT?!" and i was like....give it a chance people. it's not as weird as most of the crap out there, and it's way deeper than most. one person was ignorant enough to say "how can that owl carry a torch!?" and i was just thinking " you have a brain?! they have talons. how do you think they sit on a perch?" just wow
Edheloth Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2011   Digital Artist
People can be like that, almost always, they cannot think out of the box, or have at least imagination.
ol-bear Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah. its sad really *sigh*
sorry for the rant but one more thing. someone said in the comments of a Legend of Guardians trailer (on youtube) that the movie would have been cool if they were all robot :iconwthplz:

Agreed on the movie being srsly cheesy .. but the animation was enough for me to enjoy it ^^

And a lovable depiction :>
mewhaku Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
At least the movie got the books some amount of attention, which the series was starving for. (I didn't like the movie though...) Anyway, nicely done. I love the colors.
Edheloth Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011   Digital Artist
Thatīs very true, if wasnīt for the movie incoming i wasnīt able to find the books in my life! since bookstores here only sell what is "popular" and wonīt take a book for you if isnīt, even if you want to pay for it. So i have something to thanks for the movie XD
mewhaku Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep! I've been a fan of the series since the books first started coming out around... 8 years ago I beleive? So its cool seeing all the new fans for it. ^_^
