The third horseman of the apocalypse by SPartanen The third horseman of the apocalypse by SPartanen
The third horseman, famine. one horseman left!

I haven't painted horses for a loooong time, except the two other horsemen, so I'm well aware that the anatomy is probably way off.

Enjoy!

EDIT: Tweaked down the eye of the horse

When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

the other ones:

A work in progress for the last one:

I say the anatomy looks fine, the horsemen are fantastical creatures so I sort of expect them to look inhuman. Love the color and design it really gives it a chilling and sickly feel to it. And your technique is incredible. Also really good style, love the comic book look and feel of it. I must know your influences. This has to be one of the best horseman deviations I've seen on this sight and I've seen some really incredible ones myself. If anything is wrong I'd say it's not all that original in design but personally I'm not bothered.
What do you think?

This is still one of my favourite depictions of the horsemen, although, perhaps the rump area of the horse is a bit off, im not shure about horse anatomy, but i think the butt needs to be a tad bigger, but then again, its rotting. Looks good either way though

You might be right, but hey, it was my third horse (that wasn't 15 px high) I've painted in my life! :P I'm very happy with the rotten, sick ummm apocalyptic look I got on it :)

jo, jag håller med! men jag skyller på att skärmen jag använde när jag målade den har speciella inställningar, vilket gör att vissa detaljer kan te sig annorlunda på 'normala' skärmar :)

btw... kommenterade du mig just utan att såga mig längst med fotknölarna? KORS I TAKET! jordens undergång måste fan mig va nära!!!

Eller så kanske du har blivit lite bättre...Stilen är teckning stuk, typ spawn eller dylikt. Så man får se den inom det området. Fortsätt så. Minns bara vad jag sa om komposition så får du ett bra flyt i bilderna.

Wow! Thank you for making an artist rendition of these!!!! I love the dead feeling in the way there are loops coming off the horse, whatever they are. And that horseman's face looks seriously sinister! Very nice! And the extra animals is a nice touch as well!
Reply
:iconspartanen:
SPartanen Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! i dunno what those loops are or where they come from. But I added them to give a feeling of the horse being worn down, like if it's dragging something. Something that's really tiring. kind of. If they give a 'dead' feeling, I think I made a success :P
