I feel like I’ve been working on this one forever, but it was worth it. I think I’m done with snakes- for a while, anyway.

My sophomore year of college I did a really ambitious oil painting of Medusa. At the time, I had no clue what I was doing, and it took me so long I actually ended up turning in a wet painting. For a couple of years now I’ve really wanted to do a redemption piece because I felt like Medusa was too good to waste on one crappy project. So anyway, this is my new spin on the gorgon myth.

Holy shit! The sheer amount of detail is unbelievable! I love every little thing, the clothes, the crown, the face paint, everything!

Oh, this is superb. It's so rich! Congratulations on making her both decadent and compelling- definitely a figure one can imagine inspiring fear.
