STEP 1. In this first step you will be drawing out the guidelines and circle shapes for your harpy. Starting at the top, draw a circle for the head and sketch in the facial guidelines to aid you on drawing a symmetrical face. Now draw a long box looking shape for the torso and waist area. After that is done all you have to do is draw the outlines for the eagle looking wings. This will complete drawing the shapes of the first step now draw the simple line art to connect everything together.   STEP 2. Now here is where you will be drawing or sketching out the body shape of the harpy. But first start off by drawing the outlines for her hair as shown. The best way to learn from all these steps is to enlarge the image because you really can't see the details due to the image being so big in regular format. Okay, now sketch in her pretty looking face by adding the eyes, nose, and mouth. After you got that down packed move onto detailing the wings by outlining where the feathers are going to be positioned at. Now make sure everything is done and looks good. After you give your sketch a once over move to step 3.   STEP 3. This is step 3. Here is where you will be sketching out the definition in her eyes. After you give the eyes of the harpy some brief detailing, move onto the chest and sketch in the straps. I used a zig zag pattern for the straps and for the middle I drew the shape of the halter cups to resemble bird wings, I used the same technique on her bottom piece as well. Next draw the detailing and shading on the feathers on her bottom legs and draw out the bird looking feet claws and all. After that is complete sketch in the feathery looking hair on the tip of the tail.   STEP 4. And welcome to the last step of drawing and sketching which is step 4. Here is where you will probably spend most of your time besides coloring the drawing in. You have to sit there and draw out every strand of hair into big chunks. Get creative and draw them how you want the chunks to look. Also you will be sketching in the feathers throughout the wings, make them look soft and feathery. This is something easily done with pencil or charcoal sketching.   STEP 5. And here she is a beautiful harpy woman. Isn't she so sexy and fun looking with a hint of badness to her. All that is left for you to do is color her in with your own colorful technique or use my color scheme which ever you choose to do is all up to you!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
