How to Draw the Gorgon Medusa


Start off by drawing the guidelines and shapes to create the body framework for Medusa.


Once the guides are drawn in, we will start the second step by drawing the captivating eyes. The brows and eyes should be seductive and lush with long lashes and thick, bold lining. Draw in the nose as well, just not as bold.


You will then draw in the mouth or lips.


This part will be a little time consuming. All you have to do is draw in the head full of slithering snakes. Add all the detailing and definition to the serpents and be sure to draw them full and squirming to create a full head looking hair/snake sty   


We will get started with drawing the body. Begin with the shoulders, then draw in the arms. Her left arm is resting along her side and the other is raised in a gesture like pose. Draw the neckband around her neck which is also a snake and then sketch   


We will work on her torso next. Draw the halter top which is more detailed and defined with metal plates that makes up the design. Add the shape of her torso or body and sketch in the definition to the body as well.


Almost done folks. You will need to draw the lower half of her body next. Draw in the thighs, legs and feet. She is in a bending, crotched position and her bottom clothing is just a simple tied sach.


For the last step you will just add her dagger and then sketch in the remaining detailing and definition to her makeup. Erase all the mistakes and guides as well so you have a cleaned up image to color in.


That's it, you are all done. Now you can color Medusa in and show off your hard work. Don't forget to comment, fav or even love, but most importantly, SHARE!

Description: Hey everyone. I know some of you have been waiting for me to finally write out this lesson and get it uploaded so here it is. Today I will start the day by showing you how to draw the Gorgon Medusa, step by step. I don't have to go into too much detail with a description on Medusa because she is already a well known figure from Greek Mythology. She is the creature/monster who has a serpentine body and a head full of snakes. It is said that if you look into Medusa's eyes, the looker will turn to infinite stone. Instead of drawing Medusa with her snake like body, I wanted to create her with a human body instead. Almost like a play on a mermaid who trades a fin for human legs. Anyways, I had a lot of fun creating Medusa and I hope you do too. I will be back with some other fun tuts so stay tuned in.
