The Gate Keeper by thepenciler The Gate Keeper by thepenciler
In traveling to the underworld Magnus and his crew come across the Cerberus. Placed in the underworld to guard the gates from letting anyone IN or OUT. This creature does not breath fire but has nearly impenetrable armored scales. It is fast, agile and ferocious. How will Magnus defeat such a creature?

This is an original creature design copyright Matt Campbell 2008 created for the Mythica saga.

He will be appearing in the comic I'm working on. I've received a lot of positive feedback about this one

Is this a bought comic or an online one? In any case I don't want to miss out on where to see it eventually.

My favorite thing about this is how wonderfully detailed it is.

My friend also likes that he actually appears to have male genitals. It's always been a gripe with him that movie and comic monsters can't reproduce because they don't have anything.

I myself find that refreshingly different from what is usually seen as it makes the creature more credible in my opinion, even if it can be something exploited by whoever is fighting him.

In either case I hope his design and level of detail doesn't change too much going from a drawing to a comic character.

This is fantastic. Great pencil work in here. The only thing I would suggest would be to lighten the forward, back leg, and tail on the right side of the animal; in PS.
