    Another update. I spend some time on the eyes, I think a darker style match better the rest of the face. I am struggling with the color values right now, not sure what to do next.

    Yet another update... I redid the snakes, wanted them more realistic. I am still wondering about the color values etc, I don't like the way the skin looks.

    i actually thought it was way more scary with the vagina mouth! a face to freeze the blood!.. but you cant look away...

    also number your alchemy images in the op, theres some good ones in there but its impossible to refer to them without numbers,

    Ok I added some labeling.

    Hm, are you scared of vaginas? ... wait...what vagina mouth? You mean that black hole in the helmet in earlier versions?

    No the fleshy vertical slot on the front where the mouth would be.
    Using sex organs in monsters is a solid way of making stuff icky; hold onto your guts..

    I think you should. medusa was supposed to be able to turn men to stone with one look. sorry but a fancy hair do and some glowing eyes wont cut it. she has to be able to chill the blood in your veins. and a legit way of accessing that kind of bodyhorror is to mess with the brains of the viewers; faces and genitals, probably things we (i) think about most in daily life. we look at the faces of others constantly, and we (i) think about sex a lot. mixing them up gives you instantly horrifying results.

    you were already on the right track i think. toning it down in the later iterations drains its power and removes what made it memorably scary.

    Yeah I wasn't really trying to make it scary in the first place. I just kept drawing to make it look cool and then that medusa concept came along when I started to do the snakes. I'll reverse some of those changes to the mask and poke around with your idea.

    Tried to make it more scary by adding genital references. Besides the obvious one, I made the patterns on the sides of the mask more phallic-like. I am not convinced it's that effective.

    I am wondering if I should adjust the angle of those blades to suggest a pentagram.
