Harpy

Recommended Posts

My family and I recently watched a lovely tv series called Ronja the Robber's Daughter. It was co-produced by studio Ghibli and based on a novel by the author of Pippi Longstocking. It was a really sweet show, thoughtful and gentle, with a strong young female protagonist. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Anyway, one of the antagonists that featured prominently were harpies, and I really liked the design. Here is an example:

So I was inspired to try to reproduce it with my own harpy. Unfortunately reaper's version is not suitable for the board due to bare breasts, but I can include some pictures from the back, and a link to a 360 degree view:

Here is the NSFW LINK to the 360 degree view. Comments welcome and appreciated!

I love that you took inspiration from it! Sadly those older Stories are out of fashion nowadays. Just a little info, the authors name is Astrid Lindgren. Pippi Longstocking is another very famous Character of hers. She's a pirates daughter! I loved her books as a Child :)

 

Your mini turned out amazing! I think I'll look for inspiration that way myself :D

Yes, thanks for the extra info! Those stories may be out of fashion in the outside world, but not in our house. I vaguely remember reading Pippi Longstocking as a kid, but I don't think it really grabbed me. Though I think it just might appeal to my very independent-minded daughter.

Nice work! My 5 year old daughter and I loved the Ronja series. I highly recommend it to anyone- it's streaming on Amazon Prime and is by Studio Ghibli, of Totoro and Princess Mononoke fame.

That's awesome. If more people watch Ronja because of this thread then I have done my job.

Very nice ... you matched the inspiration pic perfectly.

I was thinking the same thing.

      I thought it had been too long since I painted a fantasy figure, so I reached into my Big Bag O' Monsters and this was the one that came out.

      It's 77041 Harpy by Julie Guthrie. As usual for me these days, it's one of the plastic Bones miniatures, and if you want one it will cost you the princely sum of about three of those Yankee dollars.

      Starting with the last, and my first NNM sky and earth NNM. 


      I know the shield line is the wrong angle, I should have gone way more horizontal, but I wanted pictures of how good it looks now. 
      She may o on the shelf of shame, for all her beauty. 
      I'd love some feed back on her BTW ... 
       
      Second to last.  this guy was a lot of fun, but not sure about the chest armor.
       
       
      Others - some better some worse: 
      Ill update with group shots either all the bones, or possibly all the figures I finished this year (80ish?)

      I painted this Reaper Bones harpy as a quick fun mini for gaming.  Hence no fancy base, and very simple metals, etc.  I didn't even carve off the mold lines (though I probably should have done at least that!)
       
      She's topless, so here's a link to more photos on my website.

      Here is my version of the Bones Harpy.

      This is my second artistic effort in the past 14 months and I'm working hard to shake off the dust.

      Input always appreciated.
       
      Please scroll down a few posts for links to the other images!

      Here is the Bones Master List 'Let's Paint Reaper Bones!!!!!' of all WIP of the Bones Miniatures.
       
       
      Personally, I prefer Harpies to look more like in this comic: Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic
       
      So I started yesterday to change my Harpy.
       
      Here front side you can see >>here<<
       
      I need to change the back of her. I'm not sure if I try to sculpt feathers or try to use my 'Dremel' to make a normal back.
