Copper Palanquin 09.16.10 (The Cistern + Marble-Hearted Harpy)

I didn't ink in the wings yesterday because my original sketch for them seemed a little lazy. So I used the wing from the Frenchie fountain as a kind of model. Now it looks sufficiently Durer-esque that I am pleased. It's a little bit reptilian and a little bit avian and looks totally unusable as a wing. My kind of wing.

Wow, a senior citizen harpy? I can just imagine her screechy voice--"We're flyin' to Miami for the winter!". Pretty imaginative. ;)
