Medusa

Hey all, I have been working today on my next submission to the conceptart.org competition for character of the week. This one is sort of special because it is the #100, and it is supposed to be the "queen" of the character section.
The theme was Medusa, and it's supposed to be our interpretation of the greek myth character as a queen. So, here is my work in progress. When I am done I will post it in the concept section of my website, so keep an eye out.

Thanks, Tim. I had no idea you even checked my blog! You little stalker!!! I will check that arm, honestly I hadn't even attempted to work that area, so far it's been all about the boobs :D

I can see you spent a lot of time on the boobies, she looks magnificent. I love the interpretation with wings, I've never seen her with wings before. Will you teach me to paint wings like that?

Thanks Ryan! I was going with one of the many descriptions of the Gorgons. In some instances they were depicted with wings, claws, fangs, scales, etc. In this case, I wanted her to be super scary sexy, so I enlarged the wings. I am still working on her and should be done today or tomorrow.
