For those of you that joined me live the other day, here is the Harpy that I was making for a tutorial. One of the main reasons why I decided to make a tut based on a Harpy is because I only have one lesson on the mythology creature and that can be found under the 'Mythical Beast' section. My original harpy I drew a few years ago has some awesome colors and concept ideas, but the drawing itself is sloppy or not as neat as I'd like it to be. When I began drawing using my tablet, it took a long time to get my lines smooth the way they are now. Back then, my hand was unsteady which is why a lot of my steps from my older lessons look like they where drawn with a shaky hand. Anyways, I wanted to make a more traditional harpy that has more of a mythical appeal. I looked around for some concept ideas and found a few that I liked. In the end I just went ahead and did my own thing using talons for the hands and feet for the harpy. As you know the harpy creature where said to be seductive woman that where half bird/half human. Their hands are actually tied in with the wings making them have claws like an eagle. I really did have a lot of fun with creating a new and improved version of this Harpy. The colors remind me of Fall, and the background makes a real nice setting. I hope you guys enjoy drawing a harpy too, and if there is any other mythical beasts you would like to see in tutorial form, just let me know. I'm actually looking forward to hearing some good or cool ideas. Adios people!
