This is great. Would it be OK for me to include in a teaching resource, giving you full credit of course?

Why did you make it out of three Pitbulls? Pitties have enough problems already, a bad rap, millions being killed every year...the list goes on..and no, I'm not with PETA. They want Pitbulls dead too. It's disgusting.

*salute* me and my own pit are I  the same camp as you friend though I don't believe the artist was imposing his views on the breed into this piece, much less with the intent to demonize them any more than they already are. An artist's job is to take shapes and color tell a story or make people feel something, and as someone who's drawn such creatures in the past I can attest that many people for better or worse have the knee-jerk reaction of fear to a pitbull's likeness, or even just a vicious looking dog, and I believe that's what the artist was going for, I doubt he sat there and thought of how he could best deface pitbulls as a breed, he probably wanted to draw Cerberus, and decided that pitbulls had the look he was going for and could convey feel he intended for the piece(brilliant art by the way).

Goodness gosh, I actually just stumbled upon your comment from reviewing some of the stuff in my gallery (Artists are unfortunately not alerted for replies on other user's comments). Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on this issue. Your clarification is spot on, and better worded than anything I could achieve.

Bonus confession time: Despite the cropped ears, I was really referencing Rotties (Whose impressive stature mainly helped to pin down the whole anatomy of the creature, since I'm wayy wayyy not a frequent animal drawer)

Absolutely, I've had a similar misunderstanding so it seemed wrong to not clear up the subject a little. Still inspirational work by the way!

Love Greek and Roman Mythology, so just imagine my delight when I ran into this beautiful fine piece of artwork...Cerberus looks good.. cool linework and the color's magnificently done...Dig the glowing red eyes and the teeth...Like the sloppy drooling tongue drooling out of the first head, looks vicious and fierce as FUCK!!!...Amazing job all around, one of my favorite mythological figures to read about...Seems like even the dasterly Hades should fear this greatly drawn behemoth of a BEAST!!!...Once again, great job...One of the TOP BEST renditions of Cerberus I've seen!!!:)
