Greek mythology is one of my favorite subjects and I frequently play with the characters around my head or doodle some concepts out.
One day was thinking of Medusa and drawing some males when a thought like lightning struck. I conceptualized,
"What if Medusa ACTUALLY had a son?!"
It was kind of crazy but the more I thought of it the more kick ass he seemed to be.
I found myself drawing the whole nest of his family, when he was young, when he grew up. Also what kind of powers he have. And one of them would be like his mom petrifying but so far it only works with women. kekekeke (no really)
Then as I found out Medusa did indeed have a son, I believe two. Errm. .. ofcourse they're not like my Medusa's warrior. So for those who are big on accuracy don't throw rocks at me yet. I'm still working on who's his father was but I kind of have a picture of the culprit, but not telling because you know, it's . . .a . . .secret.

Thanks for reading my crazy idea, anyhow medium is Strathmore Bristol Smooth comic paper, 11x17, mostly graphite pencil with some gray washes.
Enjoy!

This is a great concept!
I like the idea of him being Medusa's son.
(I didn't know that the Medusa actually had sons, too. I guess I have to do more research about that.)
Your style fits perfectly for drawings with mythological context, imho. It looks kinda authentic. (I'm sorry, I'm bad with words.)

His armor is simply stunning!

Hey, why don't you do commission work? did you get your internet yet?
DubuGomdori's avatar
Yeah, got internet, enjoying the summer traveling across the country, still thinking about commissions.
Antifarea's avatar
Great to know! What about doing illustrations in photoshop? I know you always do traditional art, do you know how to make them in photoshop with colors and all that? you get a lot of commissions that way.
