My WIP Thread :

My Newborn is from the concept of the Greek mythology story of the birth of Pegasus that sprang from Medusa's neck as Perseus was beheading her. The birth of Pegasus.
*NOTE- I added a nebula for the background to help the "Newborn" concept and the stars makes Pegasus's constellation.


Thank you all so much for the wonderful feed back and the honored DD!

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-03-17
Birth Of Pegasus by ~LindaLisa is visually stunning and disturbing at the same time. ( Featured by Moonbeam13 )
:iconxerces:
This is gruesome, but also ridiculously beautiful. the level of detail is insane here, and although I would make some parts of the blood a little darker and a little thinner, it still looks tip top. I disagree with the 'wet look' I see people mentioning for the gory bits. Sure they could look wetter, but people need to remember this is a creature of myth and legend. It doesn't necessarily have to have the same traits as a human!
You have such an incredible talent and you will not believe how much of a relief it is to have a human that can bring this level of work- I say human because a lot of artists with skills like this never bother to speak to the people that comment on their work :-/
Pegasus just looks so beautiful. wonderful detail to the coat and the wings.
Medusa's body looks perfect- it seems to me like it has such evil- especially with the blood, gore and the emanating snakes.
I know there is something wrong with the flame, but to be honest, I can't put my finger on what, so I can offer little critique on it as I can;t think of a way to rectify it :lol:.
The rest of the scene itself is magnificent with the detailed stonework and textures to everything
Incredible and breathtaking work. If this ever becomes available as a print, I want it! Hats off to you :-)

Absolutely stunning piece, very detailed. Love it to bits.
I truly admire the layering style you've incorporated into the wings.
Personally, the only improvement I think to make it perfect is the effect of the blood on the fur.

Surely the blood would stain the fur of the horse, not hang off it.
This isn't a serious, angry criticism. Just something I think will make the picture absolutely perfect.

The use of sinew hanging off Pegasus and still half-clinging to the carcass is a good effect. It gives the feeling of truly ripping himself out of his shell.

All in all... You should be very proud. :heart:

At this moment you realize that Greek mythology is a lot weirder than you originally thought it would be

This is amazing! I think the creators of the myth (were they to admit it) would even be proud that they spawned this. It's really fantastic and has made me want to look further into some of the mythology.

Fabulous! Really captures Pegasus's beauty while letting the ferocity of its birth (that is often hidden) show as well. Lovely piece, very tastefully done.

Makes you wonder how she went around with a giant horse with wings in her neck this entire time.

This is stunning. Listening to the epic music playlist I have and seeing the realistic struggle that Pegasus has emerging from the slaughtered Medusa blows my mind. I can almost seeing it happening for real. Like in a movie. If I ever become a director and create an epic Greek gods/godess movie you're picture will be the reference for it all! :la:
