COTT - Harpy design 1 by Kaduflyer COTT - Harpy design 1 by Kaduflyer
Clash of the Titans Harpy maquette.

Had the director had his way this would have been the harpy design used...however for reasons too bizarre to relate the CGI departments mockup (dubbed 'Meatball Head') was eventually used.
It was just one of many odd and mystifying decisions made on this production...particularly since the Aaron Sims studio in the USA had done some truly stunning designs for all the Clash creatures.

Yeah...someone else has said much the same....just goes to show that no matter how hard you try it's virtually impossible to come up with something totally original.

If you dont mind I'm going to use some quotes of yours here for my disertation on the dipictions of monsters in films and games. Your work and my own wonder at why do one dipicts medusa with wings have started my whole body of reaserch so it would be nice to use some of what you've said. Still love your work (I may have borrowed the mouth for one of my own creature designs) and hope to see more of you original designs making it to the screen.

I think I will have to take you up on that, particuly as the amger part of my disertation is on the dipiction of Medusa and how its all based on the old Clash of the titans rather than the propper winged Gorgons.

When i've worked out exactly what i'm writing i'll try and come up with some formalised questions.

You're right it does look happy. I mean there is no mistaking that smile. Granted it's a little on the creepy side, but a smile is a smile, and that's one that can light up the d.... oh wait the title says Harpy design... never mind...

Growing up around Halloween influences such as Haunted House, Movies, History, Make Up, Props, and etc. I can tell the differences between a good design and one that needs some more work.
And this amazing...I love it. I looks so realistic and the details are great.
So in love with this.

Love the way you've done the jaws. After all the comments I looked up the ones used in the film, yours is deffenutly much more unusual. I see what people mean by just refferencing other films, the ones used look very simaler to a jasion and the arganorts one used years ago. Its like how I was very disapointed with the medusa. They jsut copied the original stop frame animation one, which yes is a nice hats off to Ray Harryhausen but they didnt even do it as well. Iwas hoping for a propper gorgon, the clasic copper wings, tusks and claws of gold kind (might have the wings and claws the wrong way round). There are a lot of people out there with the power but very little taste or imagination it seems.

The film industry is notoriously slow at developing new ideas...it likes nice tried and trusted formulas that will make money.....it's the biggest source of frustration and the biggest disappointment when working within it's constraints.
