Medusa by PhoenixWildfire Medusa by PhoenixWildfire
I've been working on this one for a long while. In my mythology class we're studying the journey of Perseus. For some reason I've always liked the medusa character, even though she gets killed. But I thought of how she would feel if she was changed by aphrodite so that whatever she looked at was turned to stone, and i wondered if she had still retained her natural beauty, save the snake hair. Also done in my western-ish style that I hardly ever use. :P

:omfg: WOW, that's REALLY, REALLY, REALLY NICE! I love how you did the snake hair. I really like that one snake hissing. I wonder if she did retain her beauty, too...That's cool that you're in a mythology class. I wish I could be in one...I just study it on my own free time. Excellent job on this pic :clap: :clap:

thankies! I always seem to think too much in that class. I ask WHY did Perseus do this WHY did Hercules feel the need to be so annoyed all the time. WHY are Hercules always so moody? They usually don't know the answers. :P But thankies! I started working on this pic, stopped like for an eternity, then started it back up again when someone found it in my sketchbook and yelled at me because it wasn't finished. lol I guess you could say my friends are my motive to finish unfinished things. lol

yeah, one of my friends likes to poke me in the back whenever she sees me and say 'write mooooooore'. Saying she's the editor for the story, I guess she's entitled to do it. -.-' But that doesn't make it any less annoying. :P
