Painted from her next victim’s point-of-view, this was a fun illustration of Medusa to create. Her snakes went through various different stages of evolution – Changing sizes and breeds. I looked at a lot of reference images of snakes. It was a lot of fun to get the balance of hair/snake as well as Medusa’s face being snake-like. In an earlier version she was typically beautiful but it seemed more appropriate for the underlying story to distort her face in rage so it wouldn’t look like a typical ‘boy-paints-Medusa’ image (even if the costume is fairly revealing).
