Medusa-fallen goddess by glittersniffer Medusa-fallen goddess by glittersniffer
Just something small and fun, was the first time I really played much with watercolour.

I was inspired to create a very -tattoo style medusa-



Her eyes turn you to stone
Her blood a rich acid poison

She fell, she feel

Steel in her throat
hot blood spilled
The liquid grace of her living hair to make its last hissss

this entry of yours truly depicts your professionalism with your color combination techniques. complimentary colors such as green and red makes an impact. just like how mouth-watering red strawberries are in a glass bowl in a black, simple table...which makes it an easy subject for the eyes to get attention on to. other than that, i love all your creations which really depicts and easily distinguishes that it is your signature artwork. i can say, that wherever you post or someone else post your work on their pages, i can tell it is really yours... or inspired by your work.
What do you think?

i feel like...a small insignificant being taking on a giant here, as you're one of my favorite artists on this site, but i kinda have a small critique for you. D:

i ADORE this piece. :heart: as everyone else has been saying the colors work well together; her eyes have a real sense of longing in them. the gold fringes on the rose are absolutely beautiful. the only thing that's irking me about this piece is the background: the colors in the foreground are strong, but my eye keeps wandering towards the negative space (but if you meant this piece to be like tattoo flash, then I get where you're coming from). other than that, you continue to inspire me! :)

I love the Medusa story, and I think you've blended beauty and monstrousness perfectly to create a very lovely but still scary version of her. Stunning work.

I was just watching "Clash of the Gods" on the History channel where the explain each god, I didn't catch the one about medusa, I turned it off right before her, but I love greek mythology, everything about their stories is so tragic! I've noticed too when you see two people so in love you know that something bad is about to happen, love and happiness is not meant to be the gift of mortals, or so they saw it.
-sigh- Sorry for rambling. This is so wonderful, you hear it so much Tegan, you are really so talented and you have really left such a wonderful legacy. ^^; I do have to agree with papa though the white background does take away from the picture.

I know this probably won't mean too much to you coming from an extremely amature artist like myself, but i recently re-watched you (i'm now on a new-ish account) and i just want to say that your art really inspires me so much. there's something about every piece i've seen that..everything just fits together so perfectly. your artwork is beautiful in every way. keep it up.

ps. my real name is Athena, so im quite a fan of this one, myself. (:
