Dark Harpy

Author Comments

I had a older design of a harpy but I didnÃf'Ã'´t like it that much and there were a lot of anatomy mistakes.

Anyway I started sketching something in Photoshop and I made it into this dark harpy. it reminds me of a raven or a crow.

They love to stare to the moon and they always enjoy its mystical light. You mostly find them around old ruins or abandoned castles.

I think it took me about 15 hours in Photoshop.


Very good!
However, I do think that the angle of the(her) left hand doesn't quite match that of her arm - it almost seems like the coat of feathers is something glued to her arm at a weird angle rather than being it.
In addition, I also found her pose slightly out of proportion; her left leg at a strange angle considering the twist of her torso. This might be on purpose though, and it's not to say it's a bad thing! If it is on purpose (and even if not), it certainly gives a slightly more twisted and eerie feeling in the picture, which is in overall captured perfectly through the dark colours, bosom, smirk and brutishness.

Very good, keep going!

I love you

i usually hate harpy and angel pics because it's always just a human with wings for hands but the anatomy and colors are everything i was hoping for plus the size of the wings and feathers are perfect because they look large and strong enough to lift a creature thats about five and a half feet tall to five foot eight

It really does...

... remind a raven or a crow...! Amazing art, and great choice of colors! Love blue/purple!

Keep it up!


I was paroosing the Art portal sorted by score, and saw a bunch of your dragons. Loved pretty much all of them and I was about to comment that it would be cool to see you expand from the dragon thing a little and I saw this, It is F'n Awesome. I think that with your style and obvious imagination you could make some pretty sweet warfare art, maybe future warfare. But no matter what you are a damn good artist!
