Envy: Medusa by JessiBeans Envy: Medusa by JessiBeans
Final Project for Senior Studio, an exploration of how we consciously or subconsciously associate sin with femininity, demonizing women in the process. The seven deadly sins as various mythological monsters (however I purposefully removed all the fantastical bits because, in fact she is just a woman, not something to be feared).
:D

Medusa, powerful monster condemned to live alone until her murder because her gaze turned men into stone.

Model: Me ;)

I've sent you a couple of messages, but I have not heard back. I would like to use this image in the logo for a small vanity-press roleplaying game, and I was hoping I could get your permission to do so. Please contact me? bblackmoor@blackgate.net

We went with a different image for our logo, but I still love this piece. The look in her eyes is fantastic.

Nice use of illumination here ! Not to quibble, but wasn't Medusa suppose to be ugly ? Hence her ability to turn men to stone ? Otherwise, I love this piece. :)
