Medusa MC Entry by ShadowKira Medusa MC Entry by ShadowKira
My entry for the Mythical Creatures Contest, I was a little rushed... As I found out late about the contest but it sounded like too much fun to pass up!

Hopefully I did everything right... This is my first time entering on Deviantart. >_<;

I wanted to do something more elegant because I find Medusa's story to be quite sad. Unfortunately due to time the original concept I had got scrapped. Hope you like regardless! :D

The back image was meant to resemble Greek Pottery, symbols are two snakes... For Medusa's sisters/fellow Gorgons, Athena's "All Seeing Eye" and the Trident of Poseidon.

Edit: Voting starts on the 25th, to vote for my design please click "I want this." Thanks guys! :D

Overall very striking. Things that might make things a little better:

Inner serpent belly green should be dropped in hue and saturation to let the skin color pop out more. No need for shadows or shading.

Fangs may need to curve some more to break them up against the other facial markings.

Break up facial symetry more. Perhaps move cheekdone line out and down a fraction more. Instead of a left-right symetry with the serpents perhaps a more diagonal symetry.

Do not put on black, a charcoal or some warmer color will be more suitable. Grays will interfere with the large scale color I fear.

Sclera and irises are particularly gorgeous.

Just my two cents.
What do you think?

Just a couple things. First off AWESOME Medusa, and I say this is one of your harder hitting pictures, but given the symmetry of her image (that is the perfect bi-lateral symmetry you achieved here) that givers a more iconic look, I would have put her image on the back of the shirt riding down the spine of the wearer. As for the DA image I would make it a "badge style" size and place it on the right chest of the shirt. But that is just me. Also I would include the name Medusa on the left chest section of the shirt in the same "Badge Style". ^^; Still this is a kick-ass shirt you have here! :w00t:
