ROUND #201 :: ANDROMEDADESCRIPTION
To kick off a fresh new reign of ChoW we dive into greek mythology and this week's topic is: Andromeda, the chained princess.
Andromeda was the princess of the kingdom of Ethiopia and daughter of Cassiope and Cepheus. One day, Cassiope bragged that she was prettier than the daughters of the seagod Nereus. The Greek Gods did not appreciate this and sent a seamonster to punish the queen for her arrogance. The only way to stop the monster from destroying the kingdom, was to sacrifice beautiful Andromeda. She was chained to a rock in the sea to be devoured by the sea monster...
Find out what happened to Andromeda:
The story of Andromeda inspired many artists throughout the ages:
Now it's time she inspires you!
Since you have some more time for this ChoW, you will have to include the seamonster in some way. Feel free to experiment with Andromeda's outfit, style and time period, but keep to the story and include the sea monster.

Let's see if I manage to get on the poll this time or faceplant like i did last time when i forgot to attach wips. xD
This one was fun to do, but I really had to force myself to finish it which is why the final is not that great; although I really was getting into it towards the end.
Great entries so far!
Yay, good luck everyone.
First CHOW. Lots of fun.
Andromeda and the teeth from the deep. Oil on board. Could probably use another session of work but time has run out...
Andromeda In Space
As a fan of anything sci fi, I took the classic scene/setting of the myth of Andromeda and turned it into a derelict asteroid field in orbit above a moon.
"...Left to die in nothing but her space-boots"
Maybe I'll do the pic from her POV
Nooooooooooooooo!!! Poor girl. There she was having a salmon toasted sandwich then the high priest shackles her to a rock. Now that is so uncool man!
my first chow! didn't have time to finish it though...
Amazing work everybody!
My first CHOW! Great fun, and good luck all.
