Commission: Laurelman (11) by Dragonith Commission: Laurelman (11) by Dragonith
:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack:

Guard Dog of the Underworld
"The entrance to the land of the dead is guarded by a ghastly canine apparition, allowing entry only to those its master (Plutitan) allows. The rest, become engulfed in an eternity of darkness. Rumor has it that this impregnable guardian is the gate itself, but none who've attempted this theory have been heard from again."

:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack:

Part 5 out of 5 of Laurelman's third set of commissions. Finally managed to get the design the way I wanted it, enter Gateklos, legendary guard dog of the underworld!

Normally Cerberus-based Fakemon have the additional dual-typing of Fire, which in retrospect, makes sense. Laurelman wanted this one however to have pure Dark-typing, so I had to play a little differently from the norm. Instead of making it look practically like a legendary Houndoom knock-off, I literally took what Cerberus was meant to guard and implemented into its design: The gates to the Underworld. The jaws of all three of its heads resemble fence railings to emphasize this, while the smoke substance emitting from Gateklos is complete darkness. Basically, Gateklos's body structure is more like a container than an actual organic body holding all the darkness inside.

Name origin comes from Gate+Skylos (Dog).

I love how you put a fresh spin on the idea rather than do the whole fire/dog concept for Cerberus. Great work

A three headed dog? I wonder what this fakemon could be based of. It's not like it's so obvious you don't even need to look at the description XD
Great design, as usual
