The most unique depiction of Medusa I have seen so far. Lovely colour palette and textures. I like the corn snake patterns that you added to her "hair" and skin. :)

Oh I love the texture on the snakes. You can see how smooth the skin is. I like the chaos of the snakes and how you're echoed their skin in medusa's own skin. Very clever touch with the crystals. That's an idea I could run with.

Absolutely stunning~
The purples, pinks and reds look so amazing together. There's such a calming feel to the colours and then the contrast when you get to Medusa's gaze is really interesting~

Crystal instead of rock is super interesting. :D I love the reflection of the scales/crystals under her eye.

I like the crystal imagery and the look she's giving the viewer. However, I think you could have done more to set the focus on that petrifying gaze. Leading the eye by making the crystals and snakes mostly point to or away from her face would cause the viewer to always return there and convey the feeling of being trapped and held by that look. The way it is you lead the eye somewhere up into the upper right corner to then loose itself in her hair, never really touching her face...
Not that I have any place to talk like that - just something that came to mind... ^^;

Interesting take on Medusa, using crystal instead of general "stone." Your work is always so incredible!

She looks positively cracked down the middle (as in bonkers). It's glorious!

OOooooOOO! Crystals, nice addition to the petrification (who says diamonds are a girl’s best friend?!) Love Medusa's expression too, like you've just caught her red-handed and now you're gonna pay for it.

This is great, both her expression and her hand were something that really caught my eye, but overall the whole piece is great! Well done

I really enjoy the colors of this piece. A little more up close to the figure than some of your other usual work which entails a detailed background.

Part of me wishes the eye was larger. I don't know of its because it could be a more exaggerated focal point or what. It's expressive, yet seems small. But kinda plays off the smallness of snake eyes :)

That's pretty creating having those crystals coming out instead of turning to stone! Very pretty and dramatic too. Feel like Medusa is just as surprised about the purple crystals as well.

I don't understand the crystals bc of the Greek mythology, but I still think it adds a beautiful touch to the piece. I especially love the crystal inside the human head and the expressions. Great job!
