guardian of the gates Picture

6/30

Cerberus~ I drew this when I was kind of ticked off.. and somehow drawing ticked off things when I'm ticked off makes them better. Yay?

Not much about Cerberus that you don't already know. He guards the gates to the Underworld, making sure no living can enter and no dead can escape. For one of Heracles' Twelve Labors, he was forced to bring Cerberus to the court of Eurystheus. There are several versions of this story, though. Some say Hades gave him permission to take Cerberus as long as he didn't harm him, and Heracles ends up dragging him all the way to the court. Others say Heracles took the dog by treating it with the first kindness it had ever been given. Well, whichever way it happened, it happened.
And that's about it for Cerberus.
And yes, Cerberus has a snake (or snakes..) for a tail. So stfu.
VIDEO GAMES LIE TO YOU.
However, Final Fantasy IX's version of the Cerberus kicks ass.
