its january the 18th, and this is the first drawing ive done in MMX. shocking i know, but i got a psp for my birthday from =kinkei, so naturally my time has wisely been divided between Gran Turismo, God of War and Tekken.

dunno why i done Medusa, I always find bits of Greek mythology rather insane and therefore fascinating. Here's the info on Medusa from which I took inspiration:

"One of the Gorgons, three sisters from classical Greek mythology who were transformed into monsters by the goddess Athena after the sea god Poseidon had raped Medusa in a temple sacred to the goddess. They are described as looking like women but with leathery, bat-like wings, great tusks sticking out from a gaping mouth and snakes for hair; Medusa also has clawed hands made of brass. Any mortal who looked into her face were instantly turned to stone. The three were the children of Ceto and Phorcrys, the Old Man of the Sea, but unlike her sisters Euryale and Atheno, Medusa was a mortal and met her end at the hands of the hero Perseus, who beheaded her while she slept. From her spilled blood sprang the monstrous Chrysaor and the winged horse Pegasus. Though pursued by Medusa's sisters, Perseus escaped and eventually used the severed head to turn his enemies to stone."
