The Flirtation by Flrmprtrix The Flirtation by Flrmprtrix
WIP sketch, ipad, sketchclub. in my opinion, Medusa really got the short end of the stick, what with being raped, cursed, and beheaded. i'd like to imagine a version where things turn out a little differently.

i never actually do sketches as a foundation for a painting, but am giving it a try--i have no idea what i'm doing. i haven't figured out the background at all, so the scribbles are just a placeholder. i don't know why she's wearing completely anachronistic armor, i don't know why i picked a peaceful olive tree as shield decoration, and i haven't worked out how to get around the nakedness without actually covering him up.

loosely-used reference photos were the july vogue brazil shoot, and a photo of tom hardy, because Perseus always seemed like such a square, and could benefit from some hardiness.

an (much much) older take on these two here: [link]

the mythological figure, Medusa, was originally a loving mother, and the snakes for hair represented a sort of divine heavenly-ness. when Greece became more patriarchal culture, she was named a villain.
