In 2010, I was fortunate to be connected with the amazing artist, Peter de Sève. I was looking for advice and feedback on my work and how I could level it up, and Peter very kindly made the time to give me thoughtful and honest feedback. I didn’t realize how lucky I was at the time to acquire Peter’s attention and valuable feedback. Every day since then, I’ve continued to be amazed by his art and I made this piece in part to pay homage to his kindness and his mastery.

In the spring of 2017, Peter became obsessed with drawing harpies. Almost daily on my twitter feed (sometimes more than once a day), I would see another magnificent illustration pop-up from Peter. When I saw this particular one show up, I couldn’t help but to adopt it and attempt to bring it to life in 3D. I modeled, rigged, surfaced, animated, and composited this harpy to pay homage to the kindness that Peter showed me 7 years ago. As I continue to learn and grow, I’m excited to work on projects like this. This character has so much intrinsic personality given to it by Peter, but I vastly enjoyed bringing it to life in my own way. I hope you enjoy it!
