She's gorgeous! If you were trying to make her ugly, you failed in a big way. ^_^

This is amazing.

how would you feel if someone were to get this tattooed on them?

:iconnatelyon:
natelyon Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011
That would be pretty cool. I'd hate to see it being passed off as a design in a tattoo parlour but if an individual wanted it that would be fine. As long as I got to see how it turned out too :D

She seems almost worth risking turning to stone to give a hug. Maybe a blindfold...

You've brilliantly captured my ideal of Medusa. Sad, lonely, misunderstood. Beautiful job.

So i came across this piece a long time ago, and it inspired a short story piece... and... I just found it again and thought i'd let you know :)

I typed it up, and i'd love if i could use your piece (with credit to you of course) as the thumbnail for a site (writerscafe.org) for my story?

the look on her face is positively.... it... it makes me want to screw my eyes shut and give her a big ol' hug.

I highly understimated how much work colouring them would be (three hours before i decided that the shadowing can do itself)

lol. I treid colouring this originally too and came to the same conclusion :D

yeah, scales suck. by the way, i try for a naga now. problem is that I want her to be an albino cobra and I've got no idea how to make her human part looking albino-like without leaving the paper just white. do have any solutions? *help!*

Hmmm, hard one. I'd use minimal shading for some definition and use a dark background or clothing for contrast.

thanks. i put her into some kind of jungle backround, and hope it won't look to artificial. i think i'm going to load her, and some of my other pics up next week or so (maybe then i'll get some comments). thank you for your help, maybe you look her up and tell me you opinon.
