Perseus The Medusa Slayer

Posted Sep 3, 2005, 4:21:53 AM UTC
Well, I had originally wanted to do a more detailed picture, with perseus being fully nude, but certain parts of that I kept re-drawing, were not ending up like how I liked them, so I decided to go with SOME bit of accessories on him instead, such as the cloth, and the helm. The background too, I wanted more detailed, but after I had finished with Perseus, I decided to do something a little different, and not so buff with stuff like my Perseus is. So I smeared the black of the cave behind him, and used basicaly whisps of strokes for the rocks. I DO like how it came out though, and the stuff from medusa's head, isn't uh..nerves and junk, but blood lol. :/ This was really my first attempt at an actual human body, rather than anime. Critiques are welcome ^^

    Hi Bamboozled. Is this based on any specific movie/tv show, etc.? If not, please move it into Original Artwork. Basing work on mythological stuff doesn't really fall into "Fanart"

    If it is based on a specific show, let me know the title of it so I can create a gallery for it.

    Thanks Smile

    This, my dear has got to be your best so far. I am sorry you couldn't get that certain part of his anatomy to cooperate. Laughing But the loin cloth looks really good too. You covered it up nicely. ^_^ I like the glistening effect you have put on his body. It makes him look like he is really sweaty. Also, I LOVE the background. It is so cool. The rocks and everything look amazing. From now on, I am having you do my backgrounds. Laughing Anyway... I have the next stage of my drawing done if you want to see it. However by the time you get this, I will probably be finished. ^_^ Ah well. All my love.

      Hmm, I'm not sure about it being my best, but it comes pretty darn close ^6. If I worked more with human bodies, I could do a lil better with certain things that wouldn't come out right hehe. And the BG I thought turned out pretty good too I shouldve put it a lil smaller though behind him, so it looks just a bit more like he's farther away from the entrance to it, but it works ^^ And the body I think looks more metallic than flesh with those white streaks upon him lol. But I likie, cus then he looks more like a statue hehe. Thanks again for the comment Kristy, they're always appreciated, Love yas much Smile
