Okay, I've got a confession to make: I haven't started shit on the Medusa. Instead of starting on her, I reworked the Harpy, still basing her on Nadine Chanz, but with an eye on measurement this time. Came out much better. I've given them both clothes:
Much better, right? The Powergirl outfit is coming together nicely. I don't know if I like that cheekbone or not...I can just take it out later. She doesn't look so much like a harpy as a woman dressed as a harpy, though: this is something I must fix. The Succubus, however, looks a lot more like a Succubus. I think it's the horns, mostly, but also the garb...and the wings. I suppose that, instead of some kind of superheroine outfit, I could give the Harpy something a bit more...medieval. Something to keep an eye on, that's for sure.
Don't ask me where those horns originate, because I'm not sure yet. I think right behind the ears, but honestly, at this juncture, it's not my main concern (looks at watch). I like the scale mail though--inspired by Red Sonja if you haven't already guessed that. I'm very happy with how the Succubus is turning out. The final may well have the fingers of the right hand sticking out of the hair. As Erik pointe out a few days ago, it sort of looks like her hand is reaching into her cranium. As is sort of noticable here, the bikini used to come up a little higher, revealing the bottom "rim" of her breasts. My wife suggested that was kind of overkill, and I agreed. The straps will be leather ties, and the scales are all attached to a leather cloth. The horns will be textured like a ram's.
And here's what she flies on: quadradactyl bat wings. Because I'm lazy, I'm going to merely flip this image for her other side. The wings originate from the shoulder blade, and the largest part of the patagium connects more or less right above her butt-cheek. Thoughts? Comments? I apologize for the crappy formatting.
