Medea by eilidh Medea by eilidh
Inspired by Pasolini's Medea. I found it a flawed, but otherwise very interesting film, both visually and conceptually. I also felt it offered a good insight into the character of Medea, as a person who had lost their way of understanding the world as they had known it.

Photoshop, Painter, a few hours altogether. Reference used for the hand, kindly shared by *batchix.

Medea, a luminous painting by `eilidh. The visible brushstrokes are especially lovely and give the piece a gorgeous texture. ( Suggested by DarkMemoirs and Featured by alicexz )

I can see the image clearly.It has really made an impact for me to be drawn to it.The colors and shading very well done.Bravo.The technique was formed by circular bases in order to get the right size.Am I to be wrong about that,no?The strokes of the artwork is very fine to see the detail.The upper and lower parts of this peice was free done,right?If so or not,still it gets people wondering.The balance was that of the cool color shades of green had a balance to it.This person seems angry of a loss.You can see emotion in this ones eyes.This is a really wonderful peice.Detail is not to much or too little.
What do you think?

one thing i've never liked of that movie is that they didn't allowed medea to perfor the sacrifice at the beginning like it was planned...and i'll never understand why....it was in the plot and the passage between her society to the new one would have ben even more drastic

Which plot do you mean, exactly? Myths on the whole tend not to have a set plot. ;)

The film is quite flawed in my view, like I said in the description. But it's also very capturing in a way. :)

Is it just me or does it look like an epic male version of Midna's true form from The legend of Zelda Twilight princess. =)
