Medusa Stare Test Picture

My attempt to draw Medusa, staring at us, in an homage to that of Ray Harryhausen in Clash of The Titans.

Of course this is sorta my own interpretation, as being younger thus more facially attractive, but I still tried to keep the harryhausen feel.

I tried to make this Medusa look, beautiful and scary at the same time, but I may have failed with that. She looks younger yes, but maybe to young, and I'm not good with drawing snake hair; The coloring and lighting I'm kinda also iffy about.

But my what I'm really going for is making her look scary and beautiful at the same time. So if anyone has any examples of characters who are charming and terrifying at the same time, please share those examples; and if you have ideas on how to make her two in one, share those ideas too, please.

I'm also planning on sharing her face as a peper drawing, so you can get the idea of what I'm trying to accomplish, in the mean time, tell me what you think.
