Gorgon by lost-exile Gorgon by lost-exile
GORGON FOR SLASHTHREE, ODYSSEY
[link]


In Greek mythology, the Gorgon (plural: Gorgons) (Greek: Γοργών or Γοργώ Gorgon/Gorgo, "terrible" or, according to some, "loud-roaring") was a vicious female monster with sharp fangs and hair of living, venomous snakes.

I'll admit I originally started this off as Medusa, and then changed it to a gorgon. the imagery represents many parts of the gorgon, in mythology, seeing a gorgon turns you're body to stone, thats why there are two faces, the left face is of a victim whos been turned to stone, the right is the gorgon. the squiglly things on the hair and the serpent are more obvious, the little object in the top is a shield, this is what Perseus used to kill medusa and the gorgons and stop their 'Stone Gaze'

a few stocks from sxc.hu, around 40% is digi painted, used a little c4d here and there too.

CHECK OUT SLASHTHREE V3 ODYSSEY, YOU WILL NOT FORGET IT !
