Horseman of Famine by theDURRRRIAN Horseman of Famine by theDURRRRIAN
i didnt really like my old famine design so instead of another tanky warrior type i went for more of a mage looking build :P plus its a more practical application of his scale to have it a staff-mace thing over a sword :P

hope you guys like it :)

Yeah, I definitely enjoy the role switch into a mage-like look. I liked the old Famine design with all the armour but that sword just keeps making me think: "So the pendulums get in the way when he swings that thing, right?" I mean, how the hell would that not cause the wielder troubles?

 “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.” were the words of famine

Very nice work. I especially like the edges you have used too frame the horseman.  So much detail and texture in the torso. It,s really brought to life.

I find it wonderfully ironic that the bringer of famine looks so well fed... Love your artwork man, great job.

It would be very un-apocalyptical for one of the horsemen to fall of his horse. Would sorta detract from the whole "terror and destruction" vibe they seem to go for. :P

I was expecting the horseman to be a bit more. . . slim, considering he's bringing famine. :/ Still, this IS a great work. As always.

Truly a most horrific and terrifying presence fit for a horseman of the apocalypse. Well done! =)

the original description of famine says he holds a scale to weigh bread or as a representation of justice. so i took it literally and there ya go XD

KJV Rev 6:5 "and when he had opened the third seal, i heard the third beast say, Come and see. and i beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand." and  6:6 says "and i heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measure of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine" this is where i get most of what i write for my four horsemen from

And there's another Horseman! That one's freakier than the COnquest one, that's for sure. I'm not sure how to qualify his staff-like weapon, too... 
That and the light effect on the side. Looks like he's comin' out of some random moon-enlightened woods to hunt down somebody.
That aside, another amazing work :D

An open cavity between the hips and chest area would've done wonders to represent Famine, in my opinion.
Still, a fantastic design.

Love it :) But, as a recurring feedback for them, I think the triangle thing (visor) over all/part of their faces makes them look a bit tanky, since it looks like heavy armour or something. Just a suggestion. :)

:iconthedurrrrian:
theDURRRRIAN Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2014
yea i get you :) i was going for physique wise and the face thing came off as something of a uniform quality for all four of these guys so i thought id roll with that :P
