MEDUSA the gorgon by artstain MEDUSA the gorgon by artstain
In Greek mythology, Medusa (Greek: Μέδουσα (Médousa), "guardian, protectress"[1]) was a gorgon, a chthonic female monster; gazing upon her would turn onlookers to stone. She was beheaded by the hero Perseus, who thereafter used her head as a weapon[2] until giving it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield. In classical antiquity and today, the image of the head of Medusa finds expression in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion. She also has two gorgon sisters.

just an entry for Myth and Legends ;-)

I like the snake hair. You did good with that making the hair seem to wave in the breeze but I would have liked to see it everywhere due to her hair being..well snakes. But all in all I like it. Well done and DON'T LOOK INTO HER EYES! :D

artstain Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
yeah you're right..the snake direction is supposed to be in random movement :D... hmmmnn next time gonna do the natural flow, coz they seems looking something over there ^^;

Thanks a lot for the advice and for liking her :-)
