Horsemen of the Apocalypse by scumbugg Horsemen of the Apocalypse by scumbugg
My interpretation of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I spent almost a week solid on just the line work... From left to right, they are: Pestilence/Famine, Death, Conquest, & War. Heres the original text...

1. And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
3. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
5. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and saw a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of scales in his hand.
6. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
7. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Each of these panels would make for an awesome tattoo.

I like the fact that this stands out from usual 4 horsemen paintings because usually they just draw 4 horsemen,you actually took the challenge to draw beast skulls with their proper attributes which makes this a welcome change to classical 4 horsemen paintings.

good job
