Love the detail in the snaky hair and especially the chair. However, sorry to be the first comment with bad news. There was no such thing as a male Medusa. Medusa was a female - and Medusa was her name. Her type of being was a Gorgon - and she was one of 3 sisters - the only ones. Your flaked-out male could be a Naga. Cori Dietsch

Sorry, I didn’t know. Thanks for taking the time to enlighten me. knowing this, its a great take-off on the ancient theme. Love the sinuous tail, but I’m having trouble with perspective. The chair is totally inside the doorway, with his left elbow over the arm and partially outside the door - The tail goes from the chair inside the doorway, spills over to the outside, then coils around and loops behind the doorway. Obviously a transdimensional locale. Fascinating idea. Thanks again for the courtesy of your reply.

LOL! A male medusa! I bet he was caught in Poseidon’s temple or something.

Poor guy. No girls to turn into stone. Stinks for him. I love the red strains on his skin, makes him look serpentine. THe only thing that I can note for a thumbs down is the red in-between one of his hands. Other than that:

Actually there was a male gorgon, brother to Medusa. He was called Nanas, and he was acted as a guard to the god Zeus.
