Harpy by Carolina-Eade Harpy by Carolina-Eade
This was actually my first one for Warsong Chronicles, a Harpy (Pretty obvious!) I tried to keep it distant from the classical hag or the sex bomb harpy, as always :)

Hope you like it!

You did a great job of finding a middle-ground with her design. Still inhuman enough to inspire fear and some repulsion, but you kept enough to give her an odd, unearthly beauty as well.

This one makes me think of Mardi Gras. The colors and face really go with the idea of being a bird with some human features rather than the other way around.

Hm, I don't know, I still think she could be seen as attractive, but you're right, you did an excellent job avoiding rampant over-sexualization. I also just adore the colors on this.

The solitary blood drop does worry me, though. ^^;

:iconcarolina-eade:
Carolina-Eade Featured By Owner May 9, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
She is meant to be attractive, thats the idea of a Harpy (She lures by singing/chanting and then strikes), like a Siren. But the sexualization is what I always avoid, its so 90's , overused and 'easy'. A female character can be attractive and interesting without huge breast, a half naked butt or stuff like that :)

Thanks.

Actually the previous version had her talons dripping blood... like, lots of blood... but my art.dir thought it was 'a little too much' :D

Oh, how delightful. ;p

I think it was a good idea to take his(her?) advice. Personally, I consider violence and gore to be other things you want to avoid overdoing.

You're welcome!
