View Full Version : Cursed Medusa

My idea for this skin is the transformation that medusa went through after being cursed by Athena.

The first stage of this skin would be before the curse has been placed, she would start off as a normal woman in white greek robes. She is described as pretty before her transformation from various sources so i feel as if this would be a good idea. Her bow and arrow would be very basic, possibly just made out of wood, with green poison effects going around the bow. The following image shows how i would imagine this stage of her transformation would look.

When transforming into the next stage i think the player should hear Athena say something on the lines of "i curse you to an eternity of snakes" and then we hear Medusa painfully transform into stage 2.

In stage 2 of her transformation, she will still resemble a woman but she will have black scales almost all over her body apart from her face and near the ends of her limbs. She will be dripping wet with black poison and at this point, her 'clothes' will be the black scales that are consuming her body. Her hair will now be made up of her signature snakes, which will be black. Her bow and arrow should also be made of black scales to match.

During her next transformation, she will be consumed by black smoke and once it vanishes she is in her final stage. We could maybe hear medusa say something like "I will have my revenge on you all".

I don't have an actual image for the final stage but i would like it to be based around black smoke. She will have her tail in this stage of her transformation and she will almost completely be covered by a black smoke (mist?) that was previously her black dripping poison. I want it to look like she is made out of smoke and the edges of her begin to fade away. This is to symbolize that she is no longer a person, she is pure revenge. She will have glowing red eyes which can be seen through her mask, i think her mask should be inspired by a masquerade mask, i have included an image of the sort of thing i'd like below, but i think it should be much more exaggerated. Her bow and arrow will now be much bigger than her previous two and the arrows will have a black smoke trail when they are shot. I have included a referance image below of how i would like it to look, but she would have more scales and look less human-like, along with the mask instead of horns.

VERY brief summary:

Stage 1: Human form: Very basic pretty looking woman.
Stage 2: Resembles a human but is covered in scales, dripping with black poison. Has snake hair.
Stage 3: Becomes some kind of smoke snake monster. LOL

My idea isn't very polished so please leave comments on how you think this could be made better! :D
