Artist's description:

Hades was the god of the Underworld in Greek mythology who was responsible for watching over the dead. According to mythology when Hades and his two brothers, Zeus and Poseidon, overthrew the Titans, rule of the sky fell to Zeus, rule of the sea fell to Poseidon, and rule of the underworld fell to Hades. Cerberus was the three headed hound with the tail of a serpent that guarded the gates of the underworld.

This painting is part of a series based on characters from Greek mythology. I found this aspect of mythology to be really interesting. These characters are dark and mysterious, and they are often feared. And yet, in mythology, they are rarely portrayed as evil or malicious, at least no more so than any of the other gods. This piece is a combination of classical depiction and contemporary character design.
