A Female That Brings Doom, Don't Look Her in the Eye


So I was recently asked to design a shirt for a ladies messageboard (like...on the internet). Since I happen to know a lot of the women involved and because they gave me permission to draw a "lady monster" I said yes. While I'm sure I could have done something more obscure and less tragic I went for Medusa because I've been wanting to draw one (and some snakes) for a while now. I decided to defy gorgon tradition and make a "Super-Medusa" with an extra man-petrifying eye and horns, and real hair mixed with her snake hair. The general shape of the design was supposed to be the women symbol but I think it got more abstracted as I drew and added strange shapes. Hopefully it's still there, at least subconsciously. I'm including close-ups of each part since I've realized the size restrictions on images in this forum really makes a lot of what I do completely get lost.

Additionally, please see the song that's been in my head all week as a result of this project:



That's all from me for at least a week or two, as I'm leaving for Colombia tomorrow! See ya, chumps!
