This character first showed up in my dream. She gave me a really deep impression that made me feel like I have to paint her out. I used a very light lemon yellow to color her eyes. The reason is that I want people to see her eyes first when they look at the picture. Yellow and purple are the main colors of this painting. I think these two colors can express the ambiance of my dreams the most.
The octopus is the element that I can think of best for her. I like the mysterious, unknown feeling that octopus brings. Medusa is a banshee in Greek mythology. This monster can be turned into a stone statue with her cursed eyes. In my dream, Althea's eyes also have a mysterious magic, she can drive my nightmare and take me into my dreams.
