Revelation 6: Green by saylem Revelation 6: Green by saylem

Last of the Four Horsemen series I started in January of this year. Woosh!

When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him.

And a power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.

Revelation 6:7-8 [link]

The Pale or Green Horsemen, the Fourth out of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Went with a Napoleonic theme with all four men.
Soooooooooooooo, Death! I really really really did not want the cliche Grim Reaper look to this guy. I gotta be honest, I had a really tough time with him. I finally got this design down in late spring, right when Penn's Woods deadlines began to happen. So he's been on the back-burner fo a loooooooooooong time.
I collect Venitian masks. I was sitting at my art table pondering what to do with the Green Horseman design when I looked at one of my masks and became inspired!
Vwah la! An here he is!

These are going to be in an art show too! yay! :heart:

I love the mask! Reminds me of a plague doctor mask, but way scarier.

Agreed--the Black Plague reference is what drew me to this piece to begin with.

I also like how you chose a slimmer, less muscular model for this one, since it makes sense for death to seem emaciated.

Nice! Very Nice! I have to agree, so many people use the Grim Reaper to often in portraying the fourth horsemen. I like this rendition alot =D can't wait to see more
