    ChoW#227 :: Xmas 3week Special : 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse




    ROUND #227 :: Xmas 3 Week Special :: The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse


    DESCRIPTION

    Because the holidays are coming up, we are giving you three weeks for this next ChoW!

    The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

    The Four Horsemen are described in the Book of Revelation and appeared when four of the seven seals of a scroll in God’s hand were broken… Four monstrous beings appeared, all riding a horse in different symbolic colors: red, white, black and pale. The beings represent aspects of the Apocalypse: Conquest (or Pestilence), War, Famine and Death.

    The story of the Four Horsemen has inspired many artists, old and new. This round it’s your turn to show your interpretation of the Horsemen.

    Design the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse!

    • Design one or more of the Horsemen
    • Setting and time period is completely open to your interpretation, as long as the colors and themes remain the same as in the original story


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Ho...the_Apocalypse




    Happy Holidays and Good luck! See you all next year

    A liiiiittle question to our lovely MOD......could we bend the rules a little further this time ? I dont even know if its technically possible but ...as I plan to draw all four horseman I would like to know if we could enter more than one picture this time , would like to draw 4 separate pictures to do each horseman justice ...as it could become a little blurry with the 4 horseman on a single 1000 by 1000 pixel picture (the final entry uploaded)....

    I know maybe a odd question but of interest to me, as I said I dont even know if its technically practicable (concerning the voting)

    so long
    Seb

    How about Four Bikers of the Apocalypse, as in 'Good Omens' by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett? Or the four other horsemen: Grievous Bodily Harm, Answer-phones, Cruelty To Animals and Embarrassing Personal Problems!

    Pretty sure it doesn't have to be horses. The horse is just the vehicle. That show Supernatural made them into cars. I mean the setting is supposed to be up to us and horses would look pretty weird in a deep space setting or something. Or under the sea.

    Definitely jumping in on this one for my first CHOW

    I'd also like to know if we could interpret conquest as pestilence. =/

    That is a great topic. I hope to have time during this break to maybe handle one or more of these. Dubaya, Chenny, Obama and Nancy lookalikes anyone?

    As already stated, this is beyond EPIC! I haven't done these as much as I vowed to myself I would, but I'm definitely in this time!
