Cerberus Classic Mythology Sketch Card by RichardCox Cerberus Classic Mythology Sketch Card by RichardCox
Wikipedia:


Cerberus was the offspring of Echidna, a hybrid half-woman and half-serpent, and Typhon, a fire-breathing giant whom even the Olympian gods feared. The common depiction of Cerberus in Greek mythology and art is as having three heads. In most works the three-heads each respectively see and represent the past, the present, and the future, while other sources suggest the heads represent birth, youth, and old age. Each of Cerberus' heads is said to have an appetite only for live meat and thus allow only the spirits of the dead to freely enter the underworld, but allow none to leave.


I completed 25 sketch cards (in both color and greyscale -- a change for me) and a base card for Perna Studios' Classic Mythology trading card set.

Approximately 2 x 3 inches. Copic markers, colored pencil, & white ink on cardstock.
