Cerberus by Gorrem Cerberus by Gorrem
Woof woof! finally got a chance to do some creature design. My take on Cerberus from greek myth, the loyal guardian to the gates of Hades. My idea was to convey several animals mashed into one, busting at the seams, like ya do. I drew that insect-like tail in the beginning and for some reason it stuck.

What is there not to love about this?! Reminds me of the Creature from John Carpenter's "The Thing." The extra dog legs are a great touch. And the mandibles was smart. Reminds me of the Predators. And the insect tail was a great switch for the snake head.

I don't remember if I've commented on this before, but it's been in my favorites folder since you posted the piece. I keep remembering and returning to this creature design. Truly brilliant. Do more.

That's a nice change of pace from the typical three heads, I got to admit.

The insect tail looks interesting. I think that kind of tail is based on either a rove beetle or a silverfish. Rove beetles tend to be active predators of all little spineless things in leaf litter and under rocks. Silverfish are more humble as eaters of sweet things, but their habit of crawling around in dark places might fit something that patrols the dark depths of Hades.

Vet: "Ma'am, I afraid your dog has a disease."
Woman: "A disease!? What kind of disease?"
Vet: "Uhm…well it's a bad disease."
Woman: "You must know what sort of disease?"
Vet: "No…but it DEFINITELY is a disease. I'm sure of it."
Woman: "Can you cure it?"
Vet: "Probably not."
Woman: "What do I do?"
Vet: "Well, I called the Government…so…best to just wait."

Are you kidding me?! That comment is hilarious!

Okay. I'll set it up for you. The picture above is the woman's dog and she has taken it to the vet (i.e. an animal doctor). THe doctor has examined the animal (i.e. the dog in the picture above) and deduced that it has a DISEASE.  It's hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing. I mean the drawing is amazing and you did a fantastic job but…that is a funny comment.

*sigh*

Oh well...

In the starcraft novel, Shadow of the Xel'Naga, there was a farm dog which got infested by the zerg. The book called it a roverlisk, and even though starcraft fans never took the book seriously, I must say that if the roverlisk was canon, this is what i'd want it to look like <3 Awesome!!!
