King Polydectes --- Maya, 3DSMax

This is King Polydectes - who was the villain of my grad year animated short. According to the greek myth, this King was cruel and demanding, asking Perseus to collect the head of Medusa for him as a wedding gift. All the while he was not-so-secretly hoping that Perseus wouldn't live through the quest. To the king's surprise, Perseus did make it back and froze him in stone with the magical head. What a punk... No respect for authority! Then again, he may have been bitter about the King sleeping with/abusing his mom...
