I'd love to feature this piece on a mythical creature wiki I'm helping some friends with, on the page about Gorgons.

You don't commonly see male Gorgons, and this is a really great piece! Well done!

Every warrior/ hero needs to remember to bring something that reflects when hunting Medusa

I could understand why you would think that. After all it is a Greek hero fighting a Medusa.

Hey Nathan, today a bunch of us arty types found a small press publisher who has been using artwork without paying, one of your images (that I can make out) is on his product page. This Medusa painting is the image.. I sincerely hope he paid you for it but I know of two confirmed artists that have been ripped.
Check out Outlaw-Press.com
I found your image on this page (about 3/4 of the way down)

I just looked at the page. I don't remember selling any images to them or even hearing of them. So I guess they did steal it. Do you or any other of the artist have plans for taking steps to stop them?

I'm personally lucky enough to have nothing stolen. It seems artists are popping up all over the place who have been ripped off by this guy though, and he was absolutely nuts enough to rip a Games Workshop image... I can't imagine what they're going to do to him... whatever it is he's going to deserve it.. and the guy in question.. is apparently a lawyer.. what an idiot!
There's a thread here.. [link]
that's worth you following, even signing up and commenting on.

This is just... so brilliantly done. I cant stop looking at all the color tones, highlights.. Details, expression, muscle work! Your sense of anatomy is just wonderful, something I'm definitely haveing huge problems with :) This is one of my favourites in your gallery, although I adore your skeleton pieces aswell.

You're just madly talented! First with pencils and now in color. The way you drew the face of the gorgon, the picture just -screams- a story and so many feelings (fright, anger, bloodthirst).

Your pictures really "gets to me" and I'm really looking forward seeing more of you here on Deviantart :) Definitely a watch from me. I'm watching a whole lot of artists here on DA, but you are really outstanding.
