Confronting the Gorgon Picture

Project for class. I started out wanting to illustrate just the normal story about Medusa and Perseus, but my professor had me contemporarize (?) it. So I took it to the streets. I tried to put in other references to Greek mythology but unfortunately the resolution is too small/you can't see them. The posters on the right are for a lost puppy named Cerberus and a concert poster for $iren.

I was inspired by [link] <this, which is also somewhere around here on DA, I just forget where. I wish my camera had such stunning resolution/that I could get as great results with gouache, but I can't so I used colored pencils.

I based Perseus's head and hair after the Spartan helmet even though the Spartans came several hundred years later.
