It's a great work, I like the level of detail and the color choice a lot. You opened her eyes to level which is wide open for humans, but not for owl, I think you could dare opening her eyes a bit more and maybe even leave out or just lower the wrinkle above her eyes a bit too.
I don't know how much you want to abstract her to an owl, so sorry in advance if this was pointless^^
Well done work any way :clap:

awesome
more like harpy owl
i really like the color pallet and the blank expression on the creature's face
i would love it if it had some rough strokes here and there, or maybe something that makes the contrast higher either from the brightness or from choosing a complementary color to give some accents here and there.
