Geryon And Orthrus Picture

Geryon Orthus and Eurytion.

They three or five if you take in mind Geryon was a three bodied giant, originally portrayed as having 3 heads, later had three sets of legs, arms, heads and torsos... and four wings. I designed him this way since it feels like he can guard all three points at once even if he has to crab walk XD.
One of Heracles's 12 tasks consisted of going to the red island, murdering all of them, stealing their oxen and giving them back to the evil king
who then sacrificed them to Hera, the one behind all of this. She wanted Heracles to suffer and so did the king.
Apparently the Isle turned red with the sun rays too.
In the poems it seems Heracles had no choice, but he slaughtered many in his campaign. Some innocent like these three, some were vicious monsters. Never a dull moment.
