Andromeda by GENZOMAN Andromeda by GENZOMAN
hi there, let´s start with wikipedia mode on!

Andromeda was a woman from Greek mythology who was chained to a rock to be a sacrifice to a sea monster as divine punishment for her mother's bragging. She was saved from death by Perseus, her future husband. Her name is the Latinized form of the Greek Ανδρομέδη (Andromēde). The etymology of the name is "to think of a man," from ανδρός (andros) "man" combined with μήδομαι (mēdomai) "to think, to be mindful of."

I remember a lot a old movie called Clash of the titans, i saw it when i was a kid on a drive in, with my parents an my cousin... and wow! i cant forget a lot of scenes, like the fight with medusa (Stop motion give me mor chills than the actual CG, dunno why) and andromeda chained, waitig for perseus and the monster, drako Aithiopios (in the movie is the kraken, lol wut... a weird kraken, but, is a move after all)... after that i wan to be perseus for a week :D

If I remember correctly, she was said to have been chained to the rock naked (must've been to help the monster's digest her easily.)

Not to nitpick or anything, buuut.. Well, it just looks to me like she could slip those chains far too easily... (Sorry, I like to consider myself something of an amateur connoisseur when it comes to bondage related stuff.Hmm. Evil plotting in progress. )

Other than that, the pic is amazing; the lighting, the detail, everything is damn near perfect! I just wish the damsel herself was.. Secured, a little better is all.. But , that's purely a matter of personal preference! Wink/Razz

One of my favorite greek stories.
I have a thing for girls in peril, BUT ONLY if they're actually saved at the end.
So this little story is perfect.  Girl at the brink of doom and at the last second her Hero rushes in to save her.
wonderful.

I know exactly what you mean. It's like the classic old "girl-tied-to-a-railway-line" trope; you don't actually want to see the train hit her, (well, not unless you're some kinda sicko..Smoking ) you just want to savour that sense of peril before she gets rescued at the last possible second! w00t!

:iconchaos-the-chosen-one:
ya, that, pretty much I guess. :P the trope itself. :P the adrenaline rush of fear and the sigh of relief when she's saved.

La versión anterior de Furia de Titanes es, a mi parecer mejor, por lo que es un poco más apegado al mito de perseo.
Perseo salva a Andromeda ya!!

Maybe it's just me but it looks like she could easily slip free from the chains...then again she's still stuck on the rock so not much of an improvement.

Andromeda remains my favorite Greek lady, although Athena is great too.
Great artwork! Creepy Cetus, but beautiful princess. Have you done one of Perseus?

Thank you for bringing my favorite myth to life in this wonderful piece of art! Andromeda's as beautiful as I imagine she'd be, and Cetus (RELEASE the KRAKEN!) looks much better than either film's version! This scene plays out in the night sky every fall, as well, if you know where to look. ^_^

She was princes and Perseus used the head of Medusa to turn the monster to stone. She was meant to die because her mother said the she and her daughter were more beautiful than the nymphs of the see Nereides, followers of the minor sea god Nereus, son of Poseidon.
