Furies by GENZOMAN Furies by GENZOMAN
A friend ask me to upload this old ilustration, done near 2 years ago or so... so , he said me:
-Dude, you have that mythological furry ilustration?
-mythological furry?
-yeah dude, you know the furries girsl with snake hair and stuff
-the name is THE FURIES!!!
-yeah dude! thats what I said, the FURRIES!
-O_O

so, here is, the Furr--- I mean, the furies
PSCS/bamboo/7hours/music: Symphony X - Candlelight Fantasia

LETS WIKIATTACK!!

Furies, also known as They correspond to the Diraes (Wrath or Rage in latin)Three goddesses of vengeance: Tisiphone (avenger of murder), Megaera (the jealous) and Alecto (constant anger). They were also called the Daughters of the Night, but were actally the daughters of Uranus and Gaea. Another name for them is the Erinyes.

Without mercy, the Furies would punish all crime including the breaking of rules considering all aspects of society. They would strike the offenders with madness and never stopped following criminals. The worst of all crimes were patricide or matricide, and first and foremost, the Furies would punish this kind of crime.

They would also be the guardians of the law when the state had not yet intervened or did not exist, or when the crime was a crime of ethics and not actual law . For example, they would protect beggars and strangers, punish those who stole the birds' young and even look out for the dogs.

Horrible to look at, the Furies had snakes for hair and blood dripping from their eyes. They changed into the Eumenides, protectors of the suppliant, after Athena had made them merciful sparing Orestes, whom they had stalked for a long time after the murder of his mother and her lover.
From these beings we have the words "furious" and "infuriated"


Previous version as The Erinyes

Great job on this piece! Also, fun fact (if you didn't know this already) : Furies are also referred to as "the Kindly Ones". :D

You have some data wrong there, its true they will punish all crimes (whether of ethics or law)9 but they dont the same victims.
Alecto: she punishes all crimes that are related with being blinded by anger; her weapon of choice is an incandecent torch
Magaera: she punishes all crimes that have to do with greed, jealousy and lust for power; her weapon of choice is a whip
Tisiphone: she punishes all those who spill blood without any cause or reason; her weapon of choice is her own voice which will drive into insanity or madness all those who suffer from her wrath

strangely enough, the description seems more akin to a divine entity in my mind. an embodiment of punishment in its purist, cruelest form; one that cannot be bribed nor fooled. an executioner that knows for certain the guilt of the necks below his axe, and whom neither king nor priest can avoid or influence.
basically a angel or similar entity who punishes the wicked and will take nor quarter.

Batman ain´t got shit on these ladies.
Funny thing, according to the Greek myth, they were daughters of Uranus(but not Gaia), and according to the Romans they were daughters of the Night and the River Acheron.
Excellent!

Pero no tienen nada que ver con las gorgonas, no??? Quitando el hecho de que ambas tienen serpientes en lugar de cabello.

:icongenzoman:
GENZOMAN Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012
asi es, son distintos mitos, el unico punto en comun seria el que son 3 y el cabello de serpiente. Mientras las gorgonas eran mosntruos que a veces servian de guardianes, las furias eran mas bien heraldos de la furia de los dioses. Digamos que aplicaban en cierta forma justicia divina de retribucion.

If they were Furries, they would probably look like some Sonic Charcters...
But now they look like some badass goddesses of vengeance! Great Work!
