Eel Medusa


[cw: noncon mention]

Every year, I forget about MerMay until like halfway through the month, and then I'm like, "Oh shit, I love mermaids, what should I draw for MerMay?"

Then I saw some post about how Medusa's "punishment" of being turned into a snake lady was actually Athena's way of protecting her from being assaulted again, and I was like, "Oh! That sounds badass to draw!" Because I remembered this thing I read in college about mermaids historically being subjected to lots of brutal noncon in storytelling, so I thought this was a fitting reversal of that imagery. Idk if I make much sense lol. Anyway, now here she is as an eel mermaid, ready to rip someone's throat out!

Also, haha first piece to get its debut on NG! Fun fact: this was traditionally drawn and then colored in digital. Here's the full tutorial on how to draw digitally without a digitizing tablet.
