My take on Medusa, the snake haired creature from Greek mythology who could kill people with one look... That's why she has blinded her servants and is wearing a veil, to slow down the killing a wee bit. I mean, life would become quite boring shortly if everyone around you were dead... like this she still has her power but can keep it as a threat instead. Probably very effective.

Wow, this is so cool! I love the details and superb painting skills you’ve got! I don’t understand how people can do thins like this with a computer! But it’s really great! Love the colours too! 2 *First Comment Dance*

I like your logic behind this picture! And it’s an excellent Medusa - still beautiful yet transformed into something monstrous... Oops, poor birdie!

Is the man stone or just a different type of being that is naturally brown/gray? Just wondering (I’ve been told I ask too many questions : ) I love the picture and you your explanation makes perfect sense! Amazing work!

very interesting concept, I don’t think many people have actually thought about Medusa that way, or how she would function with human servants, certainly the first time I’ve ever actually thought it through.

Wicked. I love it, an interesting take on a famous mythological being.
