PostSubject: Hide your lunches, the harpies are coming!   Thu Jun 21, 2012 8:12 pm

As I'm writing this, homicidal avians are circling the building, screaming and attacking seemingly at random. Apparently the gulls' eggs have hatched, and the proud parents want to celebrate by murdering all the mammals.

But enough about my day. Here are some evil shrieking feathered fiends that still manage to be less scary than those damn gulls. Enjoy! Laughing

I wouldn't be me if I didn't overthink, so expect a looong thesis on the behavior and ecology of these fictional creatures. (If Pliny could do it, so can I!) For now let it be known that the yellow one is a male, and the reason nobody has heard of male harpies is that they nest in very remote locations...

That crest? Yeah, it's part of a palm tree. Still works though. Obviously he's not quite done, but I'm afraid to do anything else to the body color in case I mess it up.

Forgot to mention that of course the bodies are from the old and new Schleich bald eagle, and luckily I had a few donor heads lying around. The resculpting took me all of half an hour per model, making them fit was much easier than I'd expected.

A harpy Shocked That's really awesome! It looks like Schleich eagle painted in black with a human head, as well as old Schleich model. Really well done :) I think the golden one looks a bit scarier and more realistic

Very interesting and nice work cheers
I like the idea of male harpies, what a great imagination You have cheers It's good to see old Myths are still alive because people changing them and add own versus, that way they become real "never ending stories" :)
