WOW Dean, this is awesome!!!! The snakes are amazingly well-done! I love all of the scales and there are so many of them! She definitely looks like she has a full head of snake! They look as if they're still writhing around, even after her death - very spooky! Her sad expression makes you feel a bit sad for poor Medusa. Her torn neck is great too! Very clean, no gore. Great work!!!! You are Fabulous!! Dean C. Russell
replies: "YAY!!! i was hoping you would like it! i worked my butt off on it and i like it! ya ive ALWAYS felt bad for Medusa and so i thought i could protray the enotion of sadness cuz i think that is wat she felt he whole life. but yes i wanted to make the neck creepy but not like BLOOD-GUSHING or anything...i am very happy with it and im sooooooo glad that u like it! thanx so much love! u r FABULOUS!!!"

The description basically sums up how I looked at this pic. First I admired the detail of the snakes, then looked at the expression, then had to scroll down and get the shock of my life! Dean C. Russell
replies: "lmao...quite climactic was it? im glad it was an adventure. Yes i did want to pay close attention to detail on this one because Medusa is one of my more peronalized characters. I do like the way it turned out. I thank you much for the comment...u r fabulous!!"

Wow, this is amazing! She looks so sad. And the snakes look great. I can only imagine how long they took. The torn flesh on her neck is perfect. Great job! Dean C. Russell

This is really great, the details of the scales is really amazing! It would have looke dbetter, I think, if you had finished off the snake heads with scale detail as well, though. But all that work payed off, it's really a fantastic piece! Dean C. Russell
replies: "lol...thank you...i honestly didnt know what to do for the snake heads so i thought i would make up my own head-scaless snakes...i mean medusa was myth so she might as well have mythical snakes!!"
