The view of the back of the owl, and one made with a mocha tummy.
I think the owl is proportioned nicely but you might prefer to have a shorter tubbier body and slightly bigger eyes.

If you fancied a bigger eyed owl,
make the eyes two 5 finger fold twists and the body 4 fingers in length rather than 6 fingers,
it does make pushing the wings through a little more tricky though so perhaps make the body around the wings.

Well, no amount of 'try drawing a waistcoat on it' or 'put some buttons on' will be able to pretty this disaster up. Back to the drawing board with this one. Unless you were after a owl mogwai mongrel mix I'll get back to pumping some new balloons up!

:lol: :roll: :lol:

A great effort Lilylou - you have the basic structure in place just need to play around with balloon sizing... give it another go... you are almost there. It certainly isn't the disaster you say it is!

This is my attempt at an owl, thanks for the instructions! I changed the colours a bit and tried to jazz the branch up a little haha. I was trying to make it look cute but I think the owl just looks angry all the time haha
