For some reason these days, I’m obsessed with Medusa. I’ve always been a fan of mythology-but Medusa is on my mind. A few weeks ago, I posted the vibrant green Medusa on Twitter. I wanted to make her look more like a sea monster. I feel good about the results.
Then I was SUPER excited to have Sketch_Dailies tweet that #medusa would be the topic of the day this past week. I sketched lots of Medusa, ranging from not failed scary, to sexy, to cute, and then this ancient Medusa said hello. And I LOVED her.
I like to think of what Medusa would be like as an old monster. Still beautiful and deadly, but tired-some of that fury finally out of her system. And those of you who know me know that I was just as excited to invent a solution to cover her up a little. I’m not a prude (yes, yes I am a little) but I do like to keep it Family Friendly as much as possible. I have some good ideas for this sketch, so I present it as a WIP and if I like the result, I’ll share it with you!
