This version of the character showed the beautiful woman that Medusa used to be. She’s a lot faster in the film and transforms when she’s angry. I thought it was a good call to make the character something a man would want to look at.
Very well done, and designed. Looks like a cross between Ray Harryhousen and H.R. Giger.
The snake body has enough mass and heft to support the off balance weight of a humanoid torso. She does not have the superfluous pelvis, but rather transitions directly to the snake. My only complaint is the almost instant transition from bare skin to scale at the belt line.
Why does it look like she has a big lump/bulge at her back end? Ill defined/perceived detail, or a meal she has not fully passed yet?
Looks like I'm six years late on this one. Which story/version of the gorgon/Medusa is this a reference to? (deleted) My mistake. Just read your profile.
Yea I've come to feel pity for medusa. Such beauty and admires herself, but then her beauty was punished and she must live without the love or admiration of another man. And this is a good piece, showing even if she does not look human, she doesn't have to be human to look beautiful and strong.
All the times I heard folklore stories about her... I kept wondering to myself, why don't they send in a blind man and see what would happens to him when she tries turn him into stone? I bet it wouldn't work on him.
