Self-Portrait as Medusa
Long time reader, first time contributor here. My background is in photography and I've been teaching myself ZBrush for the past 3 years. This is my latest work made for a group show at the Museo Civico of Bassano del Grappa, Italy opening this September. I was asked to pick a piece form the museum's permanent collection and reinterpret it in my own way. I chose 'Head of Medusa' sculpture (see the end of this post) and did a self-portrait with Red Sea coral at the bottom, which, according to the legend, was formed from Medusa's blood mixing in with the seaweed in the ocean. I hope you like it!
