... GAH!  Now you're stone!

Heehee, a picture of Medusa--I went with the interpretation of her being a monster with a beautiful face .  You can see a WIP animation here, just 'cause I've always wanted to do one

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/15/2011 03:43

Realy beautiful - especially because you also gave it a mysterious Persian look

JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/24/2008 07:24

This is awesome! Only nine colours? It looks like there's fifty :O I'm not acusing you for lying about the color amount, no-no, but it just looks more detailed than anything I've seen with nine coliurs ^^

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 10/14/2007 10:55

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/26/2007 03:26

Aaahhhh..this is wonderful work! The highlights and tones on the snake are fantastic, but I do wish that there was more of her face.


iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/26/2007 02:43
Wonderful. Only crit is that the eye is too manga for my taste. It would look better and more dangerous with a bit more realistic beautiful eye.

FAV, none the less!

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/26/2007 02:39
I'm stoned, all right.=) You'd better make Perseus quick, i've got a dentist appointment on thursday.=)

phob (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 6/26/2007 00:27
very nice work !! cool

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 6/25/2007 15:54
Thanks for all the nice comments everyone!

As Jalonso mentioned, there is a WIP thread in the helpful PJ forum for anyone who is interested.  The WIP animation has also been updated.

WaterCloset: according to my spotty mythological knowledge, those who looked at her turned into stone, but in some interpretations (not all) she was the only Gorgon to retain her beautiful face after she had been transformed into a monster (which made her even more deadly )

cassiechihuahua (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/25/2007 14:29
I loved watching this. ;3 turned out great, I lovvvve how you faded it darker as it got lower.

WaterCloset (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/25/2007 13:36

Love the picture. Amazing composition and well shaded.

But wasn't Medusa's power that she was so ugly that people turned to stone upon seeing her? Just wondering.

[thUg] (Level 6 Hitman) @ 6/25/2007 12:42
This piece just kick my ass! "Ouch!" I love it! Realy good work!

klav (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 6/25/2007 11:11
