Fruit Hoot by KomodoEmpire Fruit Hoot by KomodoEmpire
Fruit Hoot!

Well, I didn't have but an hour to create this little guy because I am sooooo busy but I just couldn't resist the theme of the current Owl-House ([link]) group contest - creating an owl with fruit as an inspiration. I have been playing with making photo composite creatures from fruits and veggies so this was the perfect choice. I had considered painting the owl but just didn't have the time so a photomanipulation was the way to go. Anyway, I have an extensive library of fruit photos I've taken for my creative work, but alas my pineapple just didn't have the texture I wanted so I grabbed this pineapple online ([link]). I wanted to invert the pineapple so the texture would look like feathers and the top would make an idea feathery tail. Okay so here's the hooty fruity breakdown...

Ears - A pineapple scale for inner and outer ear
Eyes - Blueberry ring, orange iris and blueberry pupil
Eye Rings - Pulled a scale from pineapple to create the feathers
Beak - A pear with a cherry for the inner mouth
Body - A pineapple of course :)
Wings - A bunch of bananas :)
Feet - The toes are fruit from a palm tree

Oh yeah, the little ants on the branch are made of blueberries and cherry stems for legs :)

Well, I hope you like him ;)

I am sad to see your cute owl is being exposed everywhere on Facebook without credits to you. Well, at least your watermark was there, so I could google for the original. Great work!
I would like to share it with a due credit on my Facebook, if I can have your permission.
