This is an old piece I did for a character design challenge at ConceptArt.org – the topic was “Medusa the Queen”, and I envisioned Medusa as a kind of imperial/fascist/Nazi figure. Have I mentioned that ConceptArt.org is a pretty neat community for illustration and digital painting? The aesthetic that rules there tends to lean a bit toward the cheesy side of fantasy/sci-fi, but the technical mastery you can see on display, especially of digital tools, is astonishing, and there are a lot of people giving good advice to young artists about how to improve their work. Anyway, I realized I never posted this here, and it’s probably the most finished thing I ever did for CA. Click image to view larger.
