how to draw
Ugh... this is why I don't color on oekaki.  ><"  It takes entirely waaaay too long
and it never comes out how I want it to. D:  Ah well, this is my version of Medusa. 
It's a bit different than the stereotypical image of her, eh? 
-taken from Wikipedia-

While ancient Greek vase-painters and relief carvers imagined Medusa and her sisters
as beings born of monstrous form, sculptors and vase-painters of the fifth century
began to envisage her as a being beautiful as well as terrifying. In an ode written
in 490 BCE Pindar already speaks of "fair-cheeked Medusa".[2] In a late version of
the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid (Metamorphoses 4.770), Medusa was
originally a beautiful nymph, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," but when she
was raped by Poseidon in Athena's temple, the goddess transformed her beautiful hair
to serpents and she made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it
would turn a man to stone.

Thank you all for the comments! ^^ <3

maybe it didn't come out the way you wanted exactly, but I still
think you should color you oekakis. They're the best on the site and
it looks even better colored. Make one of me sometime, mkay?
MMORPG_Maker_To_Be_ says:   19 July 2007   662868  
i like the oekaki but u shouldn't make eye contact with a real
medusa. u'll be petrefied
Shiina_kun says:   19 July 2007   879648  
Emo_Punk_Girl:  ^^;  Thanks for the compliment, but I don't think my
oekakis are the best on the site.  I've seen some that are WAAAY
better than my sketches.  

MMORPG_Maker_To_Be_:  Thank you. ^^ Actually, now there are a lot of
people  who are saying that they translated the story wrong and that
it wasn't actually Medusa who petrified people, but a mask that she
wore.  I found that kind of interesting.

i found out that she was really beutiful intil she somehow displeased
the greek gods. they turned her so ugly that she would turn anyone who
gazed in her eyes to stone. (she WAS kinda ugly.u make her look

‹DasAtem› says:   23 July 2007   354476  
i think that even though it takes a long time to colour it, it is
definitly worth it ! you should colour alot more of your oekakis !

how wonderful! i really love the eyes!
horsemad111 says:   25 July 2007   175445  
wow love it its brill and i love the story about how she turned that
way but i thought it was beacuse a man loved her but she was vain and
dint love him back so he went to a  whitch but she said that she loved
the man but the man said he loved madusa so she got mad and ented of
making a posion to make her fall im love with the man the whitch made
a poion that would turn madosa into a ungly monster but i think i
might be think ing of another greek mathology monster lol but i love

kyoko_chan says:   31 July 2007   149411  
cool...i like to think of her as this more than the other terrifying
picture you usually hear of her---maybe the men all turn to stone
cause of her immense hate on her face---not cause she
looked...---haha- just how i think--
hhallh13 says:   11 August 2007   644699

Looks to me like it turned out amazing..
That's a really beautiful picture of medusa...I didn't turn to stone
Amazing job on the colouring, the colours make her up perfectly, and
it seems like you have all the textures right.
What can I say? You did an amazing job representing Medusa in this

Although it doesn;t come out as you expect, it'sstill is very good.
I like it and besides, it's Medusa.
