Hi everyone, I’m new to this site and I have a few tutorials I would like to put up. My first one which is this one is based on young woman who was stunningly beautiful with gorgeous long locks of hair from Greek mythology. She was punished by her father for catching her in a temple worshiping Athena. He ripped her out of the temple by brute force against her will. Athena was rip roaring mad that her temple had been violated, so she cursed Medusa by turning her long beautiful hair into a mass of serpents. She was also given the power to turn all those who gazed upon her to stone. She was slain down by Perseus son of Zeus, who cut of her head to rescue his mother from King Polydectes. Of course he was helped by the very person who punished Medusa, Athena and Hermes. They gave him magic weapons to aid him in his journey. There is a lot more to the story that I would never be able to fit in this tutorial, but if you are intrigued by what you read so far, pick up a book on her it really is an interesting story. Medusa was a character in the movie Clash of the Titians. I have to say after reading about her and then watching the movie, it was on point. The whole story of Medusa and how she was once beautiful, and then cursed by the hand of a God for something she had no control over was a tragedy indeed. In this tutorial you will learn how to draw Medusa with easy to learn instructions and a few simple steps. I based my image of Medusa partially on the character in the movie, and half on the character on a computer game I play. I hope you like my art work I sketched this drawing for 2 hours.
