I don't know why, but it really seems like nobody can get the owlbear right. It's a simple concept, really, but practically all of the official artwork makes it look more like an eaglebear. Look at this guy to the right, for example.
I mean, what's the first thing you think of when you think of an owl? I don't know about you, but I think of big yellow eyes. Am I weird?
I've seen miniatures and fan drawings that get the idea, but TSR, and later Wizards of the Coast, didn't seem to be able to hire artists that did.
This is the kind of stuff I think about all day. Maybe I need help...
