Medusa by vinegar Medusa by vinegar
Another art challenge by :icondaekazu:, :iconteanah: and :iconvinegar:
For each challenge we interchangeably give ourselves an idea or topic to illustrate and a short, specified time to execute it in whatever shape or form... of course, without knowing what the others are going to come up with.

This week's topic is =daekazu's idea: Medusa. Portrayed in a different than typical way.

__

I summed up few things usually associated with this creature: at first she was just a common monster but her myth has changed with times, later she was shown as a beautiful, yet dangerous creature, hunted by heroes but also loved by gods (Poseidon), with wings and serpent hair which she got after Athena turned her into a monster, being jealous of her beauty (weird for a goddess of wisdom, but hey; she failed with the apple as well).

So to show her in a different era I decided to put her in space opera setting and give her holographic wings. It was a nice exercise - something new for me, that I always liked, but never painted. I also didn't use any references at all, wanted to see how far I can go without it. Done in Photoshop and SketchUp (simple 3D model of the city in the background, which I later repainted).

Close up of a face on my blog: [link]

Hope you'll like it! :heart:

Naprawdę mi się podoba, to było "nice" pełne uznania. Może deficyt emotek sprawił, że tak to odebrałaś. Gomen ^^'
Naprawdę nice :)

COOL! I like how she reminds me a little of Tron, kind of like a future version of Medusa!
