Sepia Ink on Paper with Digital Colour, 21cm x 30cm

This piece was created for issue 119 of ImagineFX magazine. A vildvittra is a swedish variant of a harpy, although much smaller. They feature in Astrid Lindgren’s classic 1981 childrens’ book, Ronja Rövardotter (Ronja Robbersdaughter). My version is slightly different, with the beak only implied by the facial colours. I realise now that I probably should have included some elements that gave the scale, but I still like how this turned out. Thanks to Elin Hökby for the original suggestion to depict this woodland creature!
