    Teen Challenge 155: Death of Medusa


    Topic
    This week's topic is Death of Medusa. Your task here is to paint the death of Medusa, although it does not have to be the exact moment she dies. You can paint the moment right before Perseus does it, the moment itself, or the moment right after. If you are not familiar with Medusa and her death, do a bit of reading . Wikipedia is a good starting point:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medusa#Death

    Deadline
    The deadline is Sunday 18th of March. 23:59 GMT

    Deadline extended til Monday 19th of March.

    Awesome! The big snakes are pretty cool and original since almost all the Medusa pictures/paintings use small snakes.

    @Ffanatic
    Cool, I like the blue light.


    Anyway, here is my WIP; I still don't really like the nose, chin and right eye. Oh and I'm not really sure what colors to use...

    Kamiru Really nice, I love the detail in the face!
    Monsieur-Beefy Fantastic composition and poses, I can really feel the action in your piece!
    Ffanatic Really nice, I really like the tension the lighting causes.
    Continue Really good sketches, I especially like the ones on the second row!

    Here's my WIP; just tried to get the composition right, seeing as thats one of my weaker points. Not sure if I should put Perseus higher up in the picture so there's less negative space or leave it like that P:

    Thanks Adi! I would say pushing Perseus up the picture would be a good idea, as it would make sense in terms of both composition and perspective. Having Perseus in the foreground is also a great idea, as a large Perseus(in terms of Area in the picture) dominating over a small Medusa would make sense in terms of storytelling, that is, if you want him to be visually dominating. Good job!

    Cleaned up the alchemy sketches and take them a bit further. I think I know what kinda picture I want now. The bottom left works the best in terms of mood, the top right has the best shape and lighting(maybe she would be higher up though), and I'll take a bit of the stylization of the other two.

    @ Kamiru : thanks bro!

    @ Ninja Adi : Thanks in regards to improving your composition, remember your rule of thirds!

    place focal points over the areas where the lines cross and it'll do wonders for your composition. keep it up
