Pensive Harpy Edit by cuteskittles4u Pensive Harpy Edit by cuteskittles4u
:faint: Okay, I promise, this will be the last purple, winged, harpy drawing I will submit... for a while. Focus here was lighting and a little bit of practice with backgrounds... sorry, kinda gave up when I got to the background part... ^^; I hope you are able to enjoy anyways, I'm rather proud of this one but if you have suggestions, I'm always happy to hear em... and I may still be adding some things to this.

EDIT: Okay so I had a problem with the background and I needed to tweek the lighting a bit. Critiques are still most definitely welcome. I scrapped the first version, it can now be seen here: [link]
Detail shots can be found here: [link]

I love all the beautiful colours...this picture is gorgeous and breathtaking. I wish I could say something more meaningful, but I guess I'm just lost for words.

I like it!

I've always had a thing for harpies. Just so long as they're not the "grandma got left in the microwave too long" ugly as sin version, I mean...

The lighting effects are very nice, and I love the way the legs and talons are painted. A superb piece all around.

Why thank you! Oh my god I totally agree about the whole making them look grotesque kind of thing, I mean, totally okay if you want to portray them as either not very intelligent or just villain in general but yeah...

Why thank you Kiiro, but you exaggerate a lil.
I suppose I could show you how to, but I'm not the best person to ask, plus, my methods of color/shading is very slow... and I'm not the best for accurate physics of light...

I think you should sumbit a variation of your yearbook design to the class-teeshirt contest. I would SO wear that shirt. Gotta be in by Monday morning though... If you don't wanna do it, I'm going to rip the idea it and submit it myself :licking:

Variation, like what do you mean? Send it in a note though so anyone from school that happens to see this (and don't already know the theme, yeah right) won't know anything.

Hmm, did you look at the full view of the detail shot of her face? This image isn't full quality and it kinda messed it up pretty bad... but looks strange how?

She's not "nekkid," it's difficult to find clothing that will accomodate wings and tails :XD:
