Was working on this over this week. I felt demoralised sometime during the process because it just looked like a mess but I think I managed to salvage it somehow. I've been hoping to paint her for sometime now. Let me know your thoughts!

[Edit] thank you for the feedback guys! I refined the scales and added more depth to the background. hope it looks better.

Beautiful composition. The dark, cool colors really reflect "the snake." The warm part of the background really helps emphasize the hair snakes and does a great job drawing the eye to them. Overall it gives off a dark, menacing energy, which is perfect given the subject. Great attention to detail. Lovely use of colors in her scales with the blues and greens. I love all the snakes eyes and her expression as well. This makes for a great print! The elbow does seem a bit weird but it doesn't pose a threat to the piece as a whole. GREAT JOB!

The Medusa that can turn enyone into Stone with her Look.

It's  a very good Medusa. It actually reminds me of Uma Thurman's Version From Percy Jackson.

I love this image and wanted to contact you directly about possibly using it in a book and don't know how to do that directly. Can you contact me at drjpetrucelli@speakeasy.net or send me your contact info?  Thank you.

Very nice interpretation of Medusa. She looks beautiful, yet her expression says that she's plotting something. Very nice :nod:

Great work. I'm pleasantly surprised to see how you used the traditional view of Medusa (a beautiful woman with snakes for hair) and one of the more modern views (a half snake, half human monster) to create this.
