a first sketch for Death...like 5 mins ...to say that it is "rough" would be shamelessly understated but I wanted to share it nevertheless ^^
Partisan- really nice king of kings. love the heads on both. the horses rear seems to be stretched too much horizontally. Also, the shadow of the cloth on the mans face falls in such a way that it gives the impression he doesn't have a jaw. Which he may not but I thought I'd point that out.
ArtByManon- famine = super scary! I love the sickly dripping hair on the horse, and the scale is really nicely designed. The front part of the horse seems larger than the rear, and the head looks elongated at the jaw line. Near the lower rear of the head, horses have very rounded jaws. Great pose and concept!

Stop your grinning and drop your linen! Found them!
This should be an interesting round.
Thought I'd try a different setting so I'm going for a western theme, inspired by films like Pale Rider and High Plains Drifter. Here's a rough sketch to work out the composition.
IDP- Ah ha! I really love your idea. Death as hanging forever is great. can't wait to see more. esp how you light this puppy. nice lines though.
started working on one. i want to do all 4 lol
the thing is, people will most likely vote for the more traditional concepts again. and as much as i like using chow for producing portfolio pieces, when the general public isn't interested in them, what's the use of producing said portfolio pieces specifically for this challenge?
the second thing is that i'm not really feeling the characters with my own concept. i'd love to come up with something spelling "all-impending doom", but parsakoira's already perfectly captured that, and i can't come up with anything really better. i feel like it's quite the uphill struggle to be original without falling into clichés, but at the same time to capture the voters' attention and preference. most seem to prefer cliché.
or maybe i'm just overthinking things. anyway, i don't have the desire to create currently.
