I really love this piece. Love the hand especially. I would say that i'd like to see her face, but the way you've painted it really goes along with her story. Who wants to look Medusa in her eyes, right? haha. Those colors were a great choice. Typically someone might choose something to give her a more 'serpent-like' air, like greens and reds and golds with scales and such, but I like her better this way. It makes me think 'cold blooded' and sad. She looks soft and lonely, very touchable yet utterly unobtainable. A wonderfully new rendition of an ancient tale. Props
what is art? perfectly realistic renditions of humans and landscapes? or anything done with something that can leave a mark on a surface? "Medusa" is a perfect example of art that many people take for granted. i see art. i see some of the greatest art i have seen in a long time. i am not a good artist. therefore my word does not mean much. but i can not leave this without leaving my thoughts. your attention to detail is unparalleled to all but nature herself. lips to be seen in a seemingly blank faceless head. the finest folds of the body seen in the figure. the attention to the hair that wisps and curls in silver strands of smoke across the portrait. these eyeless yet stair at the viewer with an air of confidence or maybe cold malice. what more can i say besides simply "i love this"
