There is a long time since the last ime I post an image. Actually this is not a really new image, but is now finished in color rendering version. I hope you enjoy it a lot.
I hope post new ones very soon.
The original image is pencil on papel. I did the color rendering on Photoshop CS.
Signed prints for sale are available in different sizes (details in http://crisdelaraimages.blogspot.com/).
As usual, below there is a little explanation about it.
We liked mythology’s legends, from any culture, as well as the different folklores we can find on them. We also liked the mythological monsters, specially from the classic greek and roman’s mythologies.
The Medusa is a monster that is showed as a very ugly and repulsive image, see some images that we took as references on our researches:
Despite the differences in some versions about her origin, see the link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medusa we pr,efer the version where Medusa was originally a beautiful woman.
We think that any female character should be beautiful, even the mythological or folkloric female monsters.
For our Medusa’s version, we thought about a beautiful, lethal, powerful, imposing, very feminine and also sexy.
Although these adjectives, our Medusa is still a monster, so we’ve blended her into a snake body.
Her animal portion should be huge and vigorous like an anaconda, that in Brazil is called Sucuri, see the links:
We’ve added some elements, colors and patterns to our anaconda’s body, after all Medusa is a monster and we can play and create anything to achieve the result we wished.
We’ve decided to show Medusa in her cave to emphasize her power; a place where she dominates everything and where she makes eating a pleasant moment even if she is going to snack.
I hope you enjoy it.
