Illustration Friday- Gesture

This week's Illustration Friday topic is gesture.  I was thinking about the Percy Jackson series with the child demigods going on their deadly quests, and I got the idea for the topic.  A gesture drawing is a quick drawing of a subjects pose, motion, and rhythm, which many times is then translated to other mediums, including sculpture.  Although the creature herself is quite terrifying, the living creatures captured by her gaze, though morbid, must have been spectacular to behold from an artists perspective: with perfect gestures of life frozen forever in stone

Very cool illustration. I never saw Percy Jackson, but you have made me interested. Looks like Medusa back there. Cool stuff.

I'm really digging the mood and the background and how it amplifies the girl in the spotlight's sense of fear.
