Inspired by Pasolini's Medea: a flawed, but otherwise very interesting film, both visually and conceptually. I also felt it offered a good insight into the character of Medea, as a person who had lost their way of understanding the world as they had known it.
Photoshop, Painter, a few hours altogether. Reference used for the hand, kindly shared by batchix.
