Spiderzero~Medusa Finished

It's been seven years, but at last I've finished painting one of my favorite resin kits. Released in 2008 by sculptor Simon Lee, Medusa has been on my Top 5 Must Paint list since I opened the box in which she arrived that same year. 

 I've always thought Simon's Medusa had a distinct H.R. Giger air about it; particularly the head, which I thought to be reminiscent of Giger's original Li painting in it's general shape: 

The forms and amazing organic flow of the piece are wonderful. Strangely beautiful, delicate and bizarre all at once. An elegant and monstrous pirhouette.
