o_O since when is it Pestilence?

while im not christian, ive read The Book Of Revelations (historical interest, mainly), and from what i understood the rider on the White Horse should be Bureucracy or Tyranny :P

(now imagine a bureucrat on an apocalyptic horse? heh.)

The original is actually called Conquest if I remember, though through some occurrence it was changed to Pestilence (the horse of disease) some time.

Love the grotesqueness of the horse!

I remember it as generally being pestilence, but he sometimes can be conquest.
Agreed a bureaucrat as a horseman is an even worse nightmare than all four together. I rather be judged by Minos, Rhadamanthus, and Aeacus.

The biblical four horsemen only served as an inspiration for these drawings, CLEARLY I took plenty of artistic license. I read the book of Revelations as well, but I had a specific idea I wanted to execute.

Thanks for your thoughts.





...and a bureaucrat on an apocalyptic horse is a terrifying notion.

I love the mix of old and new or modern. The character you have designed is grotesque, biomechanical perhaps and faceless. He has a haunting look upon his rotting horse. A great interpretation of this particular Horseman of the Apocalypse. The background is interesting too and full of subtle details like the bugs and germs and things.

Wicked sick man. I love all the four horsemen you did, but this is my fav one. It's cool how you put your own spin on these, like death has tentacles and blue arms. Very nicely done... are the quote things from the bible? Or somewhere else?
