HAHAHA: I'm so not getting back into this argument. Don't bother sending me incendiary comments. I'm right, you're wrong, and I'm OK with it. :>

I remember a long time ago when I mentioned on an earlier version that this is not Medusa [human with snake hair], this is a Naga [half snake, half human], and it started a seemingly never ending argument. xD
MihoshiK Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014
This is the popularized version of a Medusa as it exists in pop culture right now. The title of this piece of work isn't going to change, because nobody cares about you and your pedantry.

Now please do be so kind as to fuck off.

Hey, don't be a prick & some kinda' b!tch.  You left your comments here before & no one agreed with them.  So you pop back in to say more?  You are lame, weak, not artistic, & pretty fuqing incompetent.  Leave this artwork be & either create your own, or harass people that give a sh!t.  The artist titled this Medusa, so that is what it is.  It is a comission piece, based upon a paying customer's desires for the illustration, so it isn't your place to judge.  Finally, what is it you do?  Looking at your page, it looks skimpy.  How about you focus on getting your own art & sh!t together before blasting quality artists with your hate, critiques, & dumb opinions that are irrelevant?
JaeDub003 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014  Student General Artist
So then, what exactly do YOU say is Medusa & what is Naga?  Because if this is the artist's interpretation of Medusa, than that is what it is!  You can say she is a pear or apple snake for all I care.  It is your opinion.  However, the title says Medusa.  So by this artist's rights, this is how they see their version of Medusa... what is yours?

Woha love your Medusa`s rendering what a powerful piece. She is a true warrior lady.:D (Big Grin)

Classical Mythology, Naga:
Modern Depiction, Naga:…

Akin to the Mermaid mythology, upper half human or humanoid, lower half snake or serpentine.

Classical Mythology, Medusa:
Modern Depiction, Medusa:…

Human shaped from head to toe, snake hair.

These are the pop culture fantasy creatures according to the largest source of fantasy lore used for the basis of small unknown IP's, like World of Warcraft, you may have heard of it.

If it has upper human, lower snake, its a Naga. Any other quality is not relevant.

If it has human shaped body but snake features, especially snake hair, the defining characteristic of Medusa, the it's a Medusa, unless it has a lower half snake body, because then it's a Naga.

Okay, in that case, I'll say sorry for being a douchebag. I'll try not to be a douche anymore :)


However, with regard to your proof, well, it's just one of many depictions. And that's the beauty of art - you can depict things however you want. As I said in my earlier post, I've almost exclusively seen medusa-as-a-snake-woman (purposefully avoiding the word naga here) on DeviantArt. And, I also did not say that "naga-medusa" is the only correct way to depict medusa - she can be depicted any way the artist desires, and the same goes for races named after her. The depiction on the Forgotten Realms wiki is no less accurate than el-grimlock's, nor is it more. The same things go for nagas - in Hindu mythology, the word naga was used for a lot of things that had to do with snakes - demons in the shape of snakes, human-snake hybrids etc. - in modern mythology, naga is mainly used for half-snake half-human creatures, but the word is also used for snakes with human features, like arms.

I hope I wasn't annoying in this post :)

Good for you, a learned individual as well as artistic enough to see that this person is not entitled enough to say what is or is not a Medusa or Naga.  I appreciate your time.
wasmic Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2013
So that's how you respond to being proven wrong? As far as I remember, I did not say anything offensive against you, your person, any of your relatives, any of your belongings and/or artworks. Responding like that to me, because I challenged your statement and you couldn't defend it, does not put you in any position to, in my eyes, rightfully tell me to fuck off. Please stop being immature and behave like the grown man/woman that I know you are.

Now, to actually comment on this artwork instead of arguing about popculture fantasy creature names...


That's a piece of art. Great work. I actually only noticed the compound-crossbow after brushing past this work 10+ times, and I only noticed her rifle-thingy after clicking the picture. But, as jeroenbrugman said, she might have some problems with the stealth, unless she can, like, tense up her muscles to quiet her rattle or something like that.
