Spotted Cerberus

So, this was originally a Inktober piece and was done in just a couple of hours.  I drew him as a black lab puppy.  But, that decision has bugged me because Cerberus is supposed to mean spotted.  Which I knew, but didn’t think of it at the time.  I really should have made him a dalmatian or other spotted breed.  So, today I had reason to go back to this image and so, while I was there, I decided to fix it.

So, here’s Cerberus, the spotted three-headed hound of Hades.

So, I’m trying to learn Illustrator.  Here’s today’s results.  The fonts are Chaz, Ache-Condensed, and Brandywine-Extended.  I didn’t make the fonts, but all the rest is mine.

I’m not really that happy with Illustrator.  It’s supposed to be the thing to use for vector graphics and text, but I’m only liking the vector tools.  The text tools aren’t really working well for me.  I ended up saving the image to a PDF and opening it up in Photoshop to do the text.  Now, the disappointing text tool performance might just be because it’s an old version of Illustrator.  Or it might be because I’m still learning my way around.  *shrug*  Oh well, it’s good for me to learn it, anyway.  🙂
