Fffuuuuuuuuuuuuuckin' finally finished. Props to the peeps at Crimson Daggers for making me finish, and to Rob-Cavanna for providing some awesome colour combos because I'm terrible with them. You can see his versions here and my original sketches / works in progress here

And now I'm going to take a mental break and try to forget about feathers...

You made it! Totally worth it. You make something good, it's there forever. Beautiful finish. Love that bloody handprint on her thigh!

Thanks! And major thanks for the prompt. I think if I was left to do the colour on my own it'd be pretty ordinary or I'd have ditched it. Seeing the benefits of colour studies now :D

No Thanks needed. It's like an OCD thing for me that strikes hard sometimes. Appreciate your permission to work on it.

Not sure how useful it actually was -the study... six different versions just to realize that your initial idea was indeed the best. Convinced me though, by the end. Seeing is believing. Just had to work through my compulsions. I mean, c'mon... 80's glam flamingo harpy? Once you think it, it doesn't just go away. Also fun to realize that an Angel version can be just as terrifying as a goth. Maybe more.

So much effort...

This is why I IMPLY details :D
I love soft focus and blurred edges, makes so much less work.

But that is one damned impressive bit of rendering, you should be proud!

Well I went with the critiques I've gotten and tried to detail only the points of focus/in focus and imply details elsewhere. Like James said, to bring the eyes to where I want them to look and not to anything unimportant.

Yup, no point making more work for yourself than you need to
