Medusa was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazing directly upon her would turn onlookers to stone.

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 the last time I do a bloody snake-man! :iconuniquely-designed: has a lot to answer for! She sent in a suggestion in for a male medusa with a female victim and I've had a devil of a time posing that damn character! XD

Medusa was a beautiful priestess of Athena who was raped by Poseidon. Athena, virgin goddess of a chauvenistic society, punished Medusa by turning her so ugly she turned people to stone by looking at them. This ability made her a symbol of great power.

Black colored pencil and pen on paper. The picture was cut off a little because the whole paper wouldn't fit on my scanner.
