<---GORGON MEDUSA --->>
ive been intrigued with greek mythology lately.
particularly, the gorgon sister medusa. there is something very tragic about her. it is said that she was once a beautiful maiden who was transformed into a monster by the god athena as punishment for gettin' down and dirty with poseidon. i havent seen a medusa who was vulnerable; that behind all the serpentine locks of hair, large staring eyes, the tusks of swine, lolling tongue and flared nostrils, she was just a prisoner of her own sin and ugliness. in the end you could see her remorse. i wish that aspect of her character was portrayed more.
so thats why i included some visual development of her character, paying attention to ways to make her appear sad and aquatic and hideous, as well as a detail of the color study i recently did. i have tons more ideas exploring the same genre that i hope to post soooon... i hope. please enjoy and let me know what you think!
