Concept / pre-visualization: idea

my first sketch shows the fight between medusa and perseus,
to be correct the end of it..perseus decapitated medusa with a sword.

if i stick with it, i would like to show perseus as a human assassin.
he got several magic items, like a helmet, his winged shoes and a shield,
which i would transfer to technical items. medusa, the frightening creature with
the snake-hair, would become a completely artifical being.

well, i have to think about it..

Concept / pre-visualization: concept medusa

this is my first concept of the medusa bot.

i want to use the snake-hair as an exit for the steam of the engine inside.

That's a very cool concept

Nice concept! I like the idea of having Perseus as a human assassin. What do you think of having him look away from her as he decapitates her? I think that would look good and I believe in the story that he uses her reflection in his shield to decapitate her without himself turning into stone. Good luck!

Concept / pre-visualization: concept perseus

and the concept for my perseus,
including the gifts by the gods Athena and Hermes.
A sickle, a magic-hood for invisibility, winged sandals to fly, a very well polished shield to use it as a mirror and a bag for the head.

@johnstrieder: thanks ! i think i will stick with it.

@M31: yes, i just read about his unique use of his shield, which was missing
in the first sketch. as you can see, he now got his shield and is ready to use it.
it will be a hard task to find the right moment, action and pose for perseus.
maybe i find a cool way to include the mirror-effect of his shield..
thanks for your comment !

Thumbs up Fantastic Idea

Thtat's soo cool the Medusa concept looks really promising and strong already! and also I like the idea of the Perseus having all this machinery from the gods, makes sense and looks good as well! Hope to see more and more!
