Death, The Grim Rider by scarypet Death, The Grim Rider by scarypet
This may be one of my simpler works, but it is still one of my favorite pieces...

my take on the grim reaper.. I wanted him to be cool and portray an aura of strength, because most versions of this dude capitalize on his thin, skeletal, and phantom-like appearance.
I wanted it to look like he has immensely imposing or dominating disposition... tangible and not ephemeral.. Warlike and intimidating, not shadowy and lurking...


i love how this came out... the mood is just how I wanted it to be..

Looks like he's about ready to slay somebody. Maybe a ghost or evil spirit. Ha ha ha
