Angelissa - Pegasus Transformation

This one was a huge undertaking that we've been working on since last month. A triptych piece of Angelissa transforming into a pegasus. That's three figures, and six pairs of wings. The file size on the final version containing all three parts is massive.

Full version:

Just Angelissa:


And here's an early version of the sketch:

Angelissa pops up in a lot of our pictures--in fact, we've been "playing" with her since 2001--but she's not a Cutepet original character. This this four-winged beauty was created by Angel, whose website can be found here. Thanks, Angel, for all the commissions over the years. We love Angelissa. :)


  1. This is really cool! I always have a hard time picturing how shape-shifters might look mid-transformation.

    One thing I would ask (not a complaint, just wondering), why does her hair color become more dull during the metamorphosis? Maybe the energy required to transform sucks some of the life out of it?

  2. That is a good question. Honestly? I originally tried using the brighter yellow on the middle figure's hair, but it just didn't look right. So, I went with a lighter tone.

    But if you want a story reason, I suppose, like you said, it's because she's mid-transformation. I like that. :D
