Meet Medusa, daughter of Poseidon, the god of the Seas.
Now a hideous gorgon. With snakes for her hair and evil eyes that can turn you to stone.
Alas she wasn’t always a monster. She was once Very beautiful until she offended the goddess Athena, who turned her and her sisters into monsters.
Medusa met her end when the hero Perseus beheaded her.
It was said that Pegasus, the winged horse, was born from her blood.

A short history of medusa, for anyone who doesn’t know Greek mythology.
I’ve always LOVED Greek mythology… well any mythology really.

Since medusa wasn’t always a monster. I wanted to show her as a still beautiful woman, and I think the snakes make her even more beautiful..but that’s me
While I was coloring this I thought to myself; “why are some people so afraid of snakes?” I personally love snakes..Rats..and even Spiders. Lol my younger sister is So afraid of spiders..it’s kinda funny and annoying at the same time.
when I showed this pic to my mom she said she kinda looked like me..mostly the evil glare
