Medusa's Saviour Resubmit by sakimichan Medusa's Saviour Resubmit by sakimichan
Feel free to use it as wallpaper : )

Sorry for the resubmit ^^, I had to correct a few things and I wanted to add some texture on it as well and I think 1 picture per day is enough XD I'm trying to stick to 1 pic a day for this week at least > .<

This painting is about medusa who meets a blind man who didn't mind her appearance, because of his kind heart he had to comfort her crys and so the story goes...

this is incredible.

This is the perfect irony. A woman whose appearance will turn any living creature into stone falls in love with a man who can not see. Love is truly blind. This would make a beautiful love story.
Well Done!

I like this ending much more than the real one. After all, Medusa was hurt unjustly in her own story. It's only natural for her to become hateful, and now she gets the happy ending she deserves.
stinkymuffin Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This story……….is even better than her real ending. Just wow.
Athane Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is a really nice idea considering Medusa was a victim in her own story.
gryffindorslion17 Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014
I just love the contrast. He is light and hope while she was cloaked in the darkness for a long time... 
FightingWind Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2014
Such a beautiful story =)  she deserved better than her fate.

The textures and value in this piece is amazing. Your take on what the serpents look like is remarkable too. 
siriusblack98 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Aww I love the story to this! ^u^

Awesome Clap  Great, heartwarming picture and nice story!
gsleonard Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014
Medusa's story is so sad, I'm happy she finally has her happy ending.
sciomentia Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2014
I absolutely love this piece, especially because Medusa was supposed to be a beautiful priestess who got raped by Poseidon, and as punishment Athena turned her into the monster people are used to hearing about. I think she deserves a happy ending like this <3

He's delivering a pizza, but she has no money-how will she pay for it???
this-is-a-paradox Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013  Student Artist
This is so interesting. I never thought to consider Medusa as a tortured person like she is portrayed here. I love her pose and her hands, her disbelief that someone has come to care for her. The background, of course is stunning. I love the light and dark contrast in this one!!! Especially how a little of Medusa's dark is around the man and a little of the man's light is under Medusa. Those snakes are so freaky! D : If I have one criticism, it's that Medusa looks a tad too pretty, considering her curse was supposed to make her ugly and horrifying. But maybe that's a point? The man can bring out the good in her perhaps. This is so meaningful, how he's blind and everything. How spectacular! And original.

I think one of my favorite things about your art style is how there aren't really many lines. It's like in real life, where everything is more a blend of colors than distinct outlines, you know? I love how you make things flow, like Medusa's dress and how their feet blend into the ground or their clothes. The ground, too! It all looks like icing to me. : )

Hm...From what I know of, Medusa's supposed to be a really gorgeous lady who got cursed into having snake hair.. I guess the rest of her beauty remains..

"it's that Medusa looks a tad too pretty, considering her curse was supposed to make her ugly and horrifying" 

There is different types of Medusa's in the fable. Some she has wings, others she has two sisters who are also cursed. Others she has legs, another a snake body.

 I feel  like crying Dx Ah this is so beautiful and just so touching, oh my gosh I love this picture so much! I love the color choices you used and just ah it is so beautiful, I am at a loss for words. It is so moving and you just did an incredible job on this! :heart:
SarahWaterRaven Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I really think this is beautiful because the story of Medusa is tragic. I've heard a couple different versions, but the poor woman gets punished by the gods and forced to live in the underworld where she's not bothering anyone and then people go to -her- endangering their own lives and instead of asking her if she'll help them out, they cut off her head. This is lovely.

This is such amazing picture, not to mention story.

This has inspired me to write a movie that's basically a role reversal of Beauty and the Beast i.e. the girl is the beast, I really love this, and hopefully my idea works, I've already chosen a name for the 'beast' in the movie, I'm going to call her 'Brea' which means 'beauty beyond the sight' thank you so much for the inspiration.
moonmystery Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
this picture made me tear up because it is the literal meaning of "a man looking past a woman's appearance and loving her nonetheless"
RiverSpirit456 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2013  Student General Artist
I understand that this would make you emotional. It's a beautiful piece, but I'm going to be a smart ass for a moment (don't really get to do it) and say, the guy in this picture can't see....
moonmystery Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
haha ha you smart ass ;)
i phrased it wrong but you probably get what i meant to say lol 
hsmc Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
can I just know where you got the idea? I mean, the the story of her meeting a blind man... did you imagined it or saw it somewhere? 
Diomedeez Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I just can't get over how beautiful Medusa's expression is! You are an incredibly talented artist!
