In a late version of the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid (Metamorphoses 4.770), Medusa was originally a beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," priestess in Athena's temple, but when she was raped by the "Lord of the Sea" Poseidon in Athena's temple, the enraged goddess transformed her beautiful hair to serpents and she made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn a man to stone.

No seriously, they are WAY more terrifying if you know the original depiction. I say this because in Mythology and Art from Ancient Greece, the gorgons were depicted as having: boar Tusks where their Canine teeth should be, a large Gene Simmons tongue that is perpetually lolling out of their mouths; a pair of bloodshot, wide staring eyes; Claws made of pure brass on their hands and feet; And of course LARGE BIRD WINGS! You read right... the Gorgons could FUCKING FLY!
Also when I said Boar tusks... I meant something like this: hdw.datawallpaper.com/abstract…

When I was a kid that scared the s**t out of me!
Awesome work by the way.

one thing for sure bout that Medusa, her eyes will be alot easier to look at.
both odd and sexy at the same time.
Very nice detail on her, makes me think she could come out of the screen at any moment... turns around and clicks the back button.
