31 Monsters in 31 Days: Day 8 - Medusa

Medusa one of three of the Gorgon sisters in ancient Greek Mythology with a head full of snakes for hair. Medusa was the only mortal of the three Gorgon sisters and vulnerable to death but her advantage was that anyone who looked directly upon her would be turned to stone. Sometimes Medusa is shown as having a snake-like body and at other's she has the body of a normal female. Unfortunately for Medusa the Greek hero Perseus was sent by the goddess Athena to destroy her and by using a shield given to him by the goddess he was able to behead the Gorgon. Medusa's head was still able to be used as a weapon after this.

In my drawing I went with a profile view because I didn't want anyone to turn to stone. The colors are Copic Markers and Prismacolor Markers.

Do not look her in the eye,
