Medusa was originally a beautiful young woman and a wortshipper of Athena. But Poseidon the "Lord of the Sea" see her and ravished her. Athena was outraged at her sacred temple being violated, and punished Medusa by turning her beautiful tresses into snakes and giving her the destructive power to turn anyone who looked directly at her into stone.
I have other things I should be working on but I had this image in my head so I decided to make it happen before I lost it. This is a gorgon surrounded by her collection of victims, turned to stone upon seeing her.
Most of all this was much-needed sketching, coloring, and shading practice with my new tablet.
Charybdis -Large mouthed monster, swallows water to create tidal waves to sink ships, and swallows whole ships that venture to close to her Also beware her sister Scylla-a Human-snake-wolf hybrid with a snake's tail, twelve wolf legs, and six long-necked wolf heads (I think its something more of a monster and less of a freak looking thing)
i have always pitied medusa as she got turned into a monster when it is pretty much not her fault. SUCH A POOR THING QAQ she has a sad expression because you know...(firstly getting chased and harassed by a god and then being turned into a serpent by a goddess aint a nice thing =A=''')
this is my 1st time doing digital art,i usually just draw and let the picture rot in one corner,so ye im pretty new to this so please be merciful with me TTATT *bows for mercy*

Comments and constructive criticism appreciated. I'm still learning about lighting techniques, it's an ongoing process.
A commission I did a few weeks ago. The request was about Medusa the gorgone, in his first Clash of the Titan version, the one design by Ray Harruhausen. A3, ink, mostly watercolour and acrylic ink, with adds of gouache, colour pencils and wax pastels, on watercolour paper.
