Updated drawing, I've still got a ways to go with it, but I've managed to fix many of the things that were bugging me most about it. 

 I've also been researching narratives more, and came across this sculpture by Bernini. It tells the story of the abduction of Persephone by Hades, and as you walk around the sculpture, you are meant ot see different parts of the event.

At first Hades has just caught Persephone and she is pushing off his forehead to escape.

Then at the front of the sculpture, it seems he has a firmer grip on her

And on this side, Cerberus is used as a symbol for them entering the underworld.
I'm amazed, truly amazed, everything in one sculpture with just two figures (and a dog). Pretty brilliant if you ask me.
