The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse 2016

2016


My friend Kevin commissioned me again, this time he wanted an illustration of the four horsemen of the apocalypse! I was super excited to start this since I haven't drawn the four horsemen since 2008! He also gave me a lot of artistic freedom as long as it was scary and bad ass, so I had so much fun designing these characters. From left to right: Famine, Pestilence, Death, and War. With Famine I was trying to think of a cool way for him to hold his scale, so I figured what if it was through his back rather than holding it? Pestilence I instantly thought of those old plague doctors, so I gave her a plague doctor mask. I also made her a girl because why not? Death is the more classical image of the grim reaper, which is what Kevin wanted. And War, which is probably my favorite, I was greatly inspired by the Cenobites from Hellraiser. I wanted him to look horrifying, grotesque, and painful. I hope you all enjoy my interpretation of the four horsemen!
