Harpy (IFX Art Class)

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

At the end of last year I was offered the opportunity to do an IFX Art Class with Marta Dahlig, a regular Imagine FX contributor. The idea was to rework a picture I wasn't satisfied with for one reason or another. I chose my harpy painting from 2007, not because I felt I was stuck with it, but it was my first painting using a tablet and I felt it could be improved upon. I also felt that there were some good ideas for the harpy anatomy in that picture, and some not so good.The change in the picture became much greater than originally planned and it took longer than planned to finish it too. This means that the image featured in IFX magazine # 53 was unfinished. It is mainly the background that is different, though. I had orginally painted a big red mountain, Grand Canyon style, but felt this worked better both composition-wise and colour-wise.Big Thanks to Marta for all her help on this :)
