Nice progress Lillycat. Like Randis said the background element at the moment can be improved to show a sense of depth.
Right now it looks more of a simple backdrop. ^^; Can't help but seeing your latest progress give me Frank Frazetta vibes. Maybe its the colour palette choice. Just for reference I attach a work from Frank Frazetta. See how he handle the background and noticed that they converge to two different vanishing point.
Lastly save the darkest black for at the last stage of painting.

Before I go to bed I painted in quickly the "afterbirth" and a few other details.
By far, not even close to being finshed. Just moving around working out everything.
hueyyeng: I think you are right about the background and I plan to do more of it the in "black" area going far back. Not really sure what I am planing to do but I am sure something.
PS: I know the afterbirth is a little much atm..I will work it out more when that part of the painting comes.

fantastic painting linda, i like the way you drew medusa with her arched back which kind of gives the feeling that she's still twitching/moving which is a creepy thing that snakes do after their killed. Pegasus's the new wings really give the painting a feeling of movement, good call taking killskerry's advice. Nice first pass on the afterbirth, i have a suggestion, maybe you can have the also trailing some of the blood from the chest to emphasize even more that he just came out of there, i did a quick piaint over just to show what i mean, hope you don't mind.

In particular I really like the way you've treated the light on Pegasus, that warm sahdow across the chest area and light glowing through the upraised wing feathers are lovely. . . and those little hints of cold light on the head (although I think I'd carry these through to the right hand wing as well). Well done.

Mucho Better! After you did the changes suggested by Killskerry and already good piece was made excilent. I really like the little blood touches you've made, makes it look like they were fighting, rather then the pegasus just happened across the medusa body

I had a problem last night and my painting over two days worth was lost to the "corrupted Photoshop file" so I had to open up an older file and redraw the snake details and the sheild and pegasus details ect. I was so sad but I live again. I wanted to post this and see if anyone has any ideas for the "afterbirth" I have just sketched it in and seeing how it all works. Just not sure and looks like it is a little too rope-like. Any ideas are welcome..
Thank you all

Sorry to hear about the lost progress, i know what it's like the nebula looks great, maybe you could extend the floor under Pegasus's hind legs a little bit, i think the transition from rock to space is a bit sudden, then again it could just be me
The afterbirth could use a bit of tightening up, if you could have some of it stretched like the one being pulled by his front hoove, most of it looks a bit loose right now.
great detail on the wings btw

This is pretty hot stuff. The rendering, texture, and sense of space are great. Good move on scratching the afterbirth off the spot on the wing where it was making a weird tangent with the torch.

Thank you and yes..I was not happy lol I got a tear in my eye at that. The afterbirth is a pain...I am still working on making it more tight You think it needs more darks and lights to make it look more finshed?
Thank you very much and yes that spot where I had the afterbirth just didn't look right and I see that right after I posted the last WIP lol I had to play with the afterbirth so much it really gets me. Even when I am away from my painting I still think about it and what I can do to make it better

well my one complaint on the piece is that it's not quite clear pegasus is emerging from Medusa. If you don't know the story, you'd think pegasus had just killed her with his bare hooves/teeth, etc. in one hell of a brawl. Maybe some swoop and swish to the afterbirth playing to that explosive motion, and contrasting against the circular frame of the wings and archway?
