The most impact part of this Medusa by Kaizoku-hime is it's color complement. Contrast between her face and the snakes, and waves made this deviation looks appealing.
Kaizoku-hime has done this piece more than just a doodle, I really love how the story hidden in the waves.

This deviation is good reference on studying colors and painting technique. Medusa face is neat. It is beautifully done with just a basic painting style, no fancy brushes, no glitterly texture.

The only thing I see in this 'Medusa' by Kaizoku-hime is the Medusa's Lip. In my opinion, it should cast a little more shadow. Everything in the picture has done with a high contrast, nearly get black shadow. But only her lips that looks like it is glowing. It's distract my eyes a little bit when looking at her eyes, which is the focus part in this deviation.

But overall, this deviation is beautifully done!
What do you think?

I have great sympathy for poor Medusa, and am building an entire art project around her. You have an intriguing rendering of her.
Cheers,

I've got no words to describe how beautiful this is. The colours... the way composition and the way the colours kind of bleed into each other and have that soft blur... oh ma gawd!!

The color as pointed out, is what draws the observer.
Skillful use of contrasts.
Then the eyes, for me eyes are a window to the composition
and must captivate the observer.
For a Medusa composition, this is one that I like, because its not all just about the serpents.

I love the water effect here.  Honestly I'd love to see an alternate version of this where it'd be disney's the little mermaid done in this style.

You blended the face into the surroundings perfectly and its a good variation from the standard Medusa picture. Nice work.

the teal and blue against the skin look amazing (but then again all your other pieces have amazing colour theory so you already know that Wink/Razz ) the composition and gahhh everything else is just perfect, stunning work! :D (Big Grin)

Oh wow, Medusa looks really enchanting here! I'm a fan of Greek Myth, so this is a bonus for me personally. I like the watery theme to this as well as the snakes. Very impressive overall.
