Harpy Gee by potatofarmgirl Harpy Gee by potatofarmgirl
"Harpy Gee" was a personal project that I've pitched around for awhile, and I think it's time to retire the idea of it ever making it to TV.
Trying it as book, or even a project I could put on youtube someday is another matter. :)
I've learned many skills and met a few nice folks while pitching Harpy. I'll forever be appreciative to those who've supported me and taught me how to put a cartoon together.
If you are curious to know more about Harpy, she'll be in a sketchbook I'm making for Emerald City Comic Con, in Seattle next weekend! Table D-17, Artist Alley.

Also a blog post detailing exactly what Harpy is/was: potatofarmgirl.blogspot.com/20…
Edit 11-22-2012: I put the animatic up on my blog here-> potatofarmgirl.blogspot.com/20…

1-22-2014 Started a Harpy webcomic! dummcomics.com/2014/01/06/harp…

I like this comic, I'm pretty shocked that it hasn't become an animated series

I wouldn't give up just yet strangely enough some of the most success full creative works in entertainment had been denied more than I have toes with the best example of this being Harry potter

Such a colorful piece. I can imagine a comic, or animated series promotional poster of this image. I remember seeing this on an art booklet.

You can make a independent film of your personal project. Maybe Kickstarter? I'm just saying.

why did you retire? This looks amazing! The art is incredible, i'd argue better than adventure time, the concept seems really really cool and it really looks like it could be a big hit with kids. Don't give up just yet, i'm looking forward to seeing this become a cartoon one day!

It's sad that this didn't make it to television. It would've been a wonderful cartoon that anyone could enjoy.

What's with the guy and girl in white?

Yeah, this is one of thse potential classics disposed of by moronic directors scared of change that isn't backed up with money. It reminds me of Milky Way And The Galaxy Girls in that regard. Maybe those two should team up or hang out or something...

Sorry you dropped the idea of making this into a series. I would've watched! :eager:

Oi! To the guy over there in the back! The one with the red face! Stop looking at her butt... :trollface:

Wow, I love this piece: the designs are creative and fun, and the story sounds rather engaging...what the hell was wrong with those producers!? I would've picked this up just the way it is in a heartbeat.

I do wish you luck in pursuing this as an independent work, we'd all love to see where this goes.

you should make a little indie GAME project of this, maybe using the RPGMAKER (easy to understand and you can use your own art for the game) this really deserve it.

I'm sorry to hear that this project will be retired. From just looking at this piece my interest was peaked. It looks to be a great parody of genres but entertaining and original on it's own. We need more stuff like this in animation today.

Oh my gosh, if this ever became a show I would have watched the ever-loving crap out of it!! :love:

But...reading about how animation studios treated you and this project made me want to puke. If I may break down this part real quick:

I don't think it'll ever happen, after being told, "Make Harpy a boy", Because only boys can go on action-packed adventures apparently??

"put her in highschool on Earth" ugh but WHY?? Its because she's a girl, isn't it? :|

"it's too scary" but kids love scary sh*t OTL

"it's too cute" What, because cute = girly = sh*tty? If that's not misogyny idk what is @_@

"boys won't watch it" Oh boo hoo. Girls would watch it, and they count, and who says boys wouldn't like it? Lots of shows with female protagonists have male followings.

"make her an animal" Y'know I just love how that's pretty much the only way guys can relate to female characters these days. They have to be so detached from anything remotely human and suddenly guys adore them and give them a chance XD;;; (Kind of reminds me of My Little Pony, because I know a lot of Bronies wouldn't have given the show a try had they been human characters. They also could care less about Galaxy Girls and they even hate fan art of the Ponies as human girls. Not all bronies feel that way, but a decent amount of them do!)

Sorry, I know none of this stuff is your fault. But that's pretty much how I would have reacted (albeit a little more politely) had someone told me any of these things to my face :(

I wonder if this was the pitch you were talking about, last I met you? :]

Either way, this sounds like an amazingly magical (or not?) story! I would love to see the adventures of a young elf in a magical land. Especially if said elf cannot do magic.. I bet the possibilities are endless for funny, cute, sad, and interesting tales!!!!!

I'll see if I can get a couple of places to carry it online after ECCC, especially with SDCC coming up soon. I might try getting a nicer print run made too. This will just be a side stapled floppy sketchbook, nothing fancy. Thanks for your interest!!!

Yeah, I see this as an opportunity to try new mediums. Making comics is scary to me, so I may try drawing a one off. I don't think I have the time to keep up with a web series though.

That sounds like a good idea. Comics can be intimidating. They're never quite my thing either, I'm better with short comics or pictures to convey something.
