The fourth horseman of the apocalypse by SPartanen The fourth horseman of the apocalypse by SPartanen
A painting of death as the fourth horseman.

"When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, "Come and see!" I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine, and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth."

Enjoy!

was asked to do a step-by-step

the rest of the horsemen I've done:

A work in progress for the last one:

This picture is beautiful and I commend you but I'd just like to comment that Death rides a pale horse not a black horse. Just a consistency issue but it really is a gorgeous picture.

Thanks a lot for the kind words :)
According to wikipedia "The color of Death's horse is written as khlōros in the original Koine Greek, which can mean either green/greenish-yellow or pale/pallid."
If you look close you might see I've given the horse a green~ish tint. :)

Your horsemen are exquisite. I hope to do a special post on horseman imagery sometime soon and these would be a great addition if I do.

This picture is perfect, less realistic but the wiry look really makes me feel unsettled
