Talk:Medusa effect


The link to the Wikipedia page is there so that we don't have to write entire articles on completely non-Doom topics.  Imagine what would happen to the music pages!   Ryan W 07:32, 10 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Request for more sense[edit]

Uhm, could someone make this page make a little bit more sense in lamens terms? It is very... blah how it's written. "two textures of a middle column." uhm what? a little more specific please PeskySaurus 09:01, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Lamens? Heh. It doesn't say a middle column, but the middle texture of a column. There might be something that can be clarified further, but the fact that wall textures can be of three types, upper, middle, and lower, isn't something that needs to be explained in this article. A link to texture is given so that readers can relieve themselves of any questions or doubts regarding texture properties. Who is like God? 16:58, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Removal of "that was so ugly" in description[edit]

I must say that it makes sense for me. Ducon, do you have a reference for that part?

No, I was just reverting a modification whose first comment was "your mom". Medusa was cute? ;) Ducon 10:05, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
Wikipedia says both:
While ancient Greek vase-painters and relief carvers imagined Medusa and her sisters as beings born of monstrous form, sculptors and vase-painters of the fifth century began to envisage her as being beautiful as well as terrifying.
In a late version of the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid (Metamorphoses 4.770), Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," priestess in Athena's temple, but when she and the "Lord of the Sea" Poseidon were caught together by Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone.
