You make Medusa look sexay! Nice job on the hair, I'm another person who thought it was normal hair until I saw the full-size picture.

I had to look at her hair for a bit before I realized it was all snakes... I thought it was just normal hair at first, silly me. "Medusa." Duh. lol

hey dude...?
i'v tried to hide them a little bit, so at first sight the people don't realize and so the painting is a little bit 'magic'.
cheers

i love how you could manage not to make the traditional medusa (with all the snakes coming out of her brain and stuff) and still came off with a brilliant work!
