Here is a poster artist Brad Fraunfelter made for a client. It includes the five main characters of the ongoing series. Isn’t it gorgeous?

The main character at center was created through the use of photography of a model in costume, and then was repainted in the computer. Also the Medusa character was created in a similar way. This was a model that was photographed in a studio setting, and was then manipulated and repainted over digitally to add the snake skin, snakes on the hair, jewelry, etc.
