She was beautiful, but she was beautiful in the way a forest fire was beautiful: something to be admired from a distance, but not up close.
And she held her sword, and she smiled like a knife.
A concept art I did of War, the Apocalyptic Horseperson from Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's excellent book Good Omens
. It's quite a rough sketch but seemed well liked on my artblog so here it is. I took the forest fire metaphor a bit literally... I'd love to draw the rest of the Horsepeople at some point, as well as the other characters, but I'm due for a re-read!
Inspired by the facial features of the beautiful Genevieve Padalecki, who is my dreamcast for this character. I hear there's a miniseries in the (very early) works...!SKETCHBLOG | FOLLOW ON TWITTER | LIKE ME ON FACEBOOK | BUY PRINTS
