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.

Enjoy, comments are welcome :)

All she wants is a frieeeend...

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.

Yes I know the background sucks, I got impatient.

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 it’s something more of a monster and less of a freak looking thing)

The three Gorgon sisters returning home from a Halloween party. Drunk. :pumpkin:

The Gorgons have their eyes closed for the viewer's protection. The party turned stone dead at their arrival.

Reference: Les Trois Grāces by Jean-Jacques (James) Pradier, 1831, Louvre, Paris.

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=''')

Medusa was once beautiful, but a boast left her punished. Anyone who look at her was turned to stone.
Created in DS4.6, postwork in PSE 7.
Genesis figure with custom skin. Hair is from 'Medusa - v4' from Daz3D. Dress is Genesis MFD with Supersuit shaders for bustier and Fabricator shader for the skirt.
Background comprised of 'A Mediterranean Balcony' (Daz3D), Pillar Ruins 2 (Joe's 3D Fantasy World FREEBIE), LS Terrain (thefantasiesattic.net FREEBIE)

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.
