    ROUND #214, the 4 apocalyptic mounts

    topic:

    ROUND#214, the 4 apocalyptic mounts

    This week we'll be using the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse as a source for inspiration.

    The 4 horsemen (conquest, slaughter or war, famine, and death) are commonly addressed as, well, horsemen. For this challenge we'll be changing it up and designing an original creature for them to ride instead of a horse.

    requirements...

    -Your design should embody visual characteristics of the horseman you decide to represent (you can do more than one if you're feeling daring, but you are only required to do one).

    -Your creature must be able to carry a rider (although including the rider is optional).

    -Last requirement (sorry for so many this week hahaha) is that your creature must be primarily colored according to the rider. Those being...

    Conquest... white.

    Slaughter (or war)... red.

    Famine... black.

    Death... pale or greenish.

    Get creative and show us a new take on the apocalypse!


    four horsemen of the apocalypse reference:

    Deadline:

    June 1st 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )


    finals go here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...29#post3136329

    You kind of scared me there o_O...I though we were going to have to do 4 creatures now, but we have the choice of one or more, so phew!
    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Should be a fun round. I think I'll go for conquest. I have trouble rendering white creatures, so it'll be a nice challenge for myself.

    nice. designing all 4 to completion sounds tempting... lol, but not after the game critter round.

    not sure which mount theme i'll go with yet - will brainstorm the snickers out of it. most likely war, though.

    I think I shall illustrate Binky!

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    Hopefully I'll have time for this (got a lot going on in the next few days, so unsure). Gonna give it a shot anyway

    I like the sound of famine. Here's a quick sketch to show my initial idea -

    I'll come up with more later tonight, but I'm quite keen on an enormous slug. A good symbol for rot and decay imo. Might try out some designs inspired by maggots, locusts etc etc.

    Some quickie doodles for either the death or famine mount, I haven't decided yet. I like the idea of the vulture type head for him, they're the first animal that popped into my head when I thought of death and decay. As for the body, I used a picture of an emaciated horse for ref. I'm debating on whether to add some wings.

    Love this prompt!

    Working on ideas for all four so I can choose my favorite - not sure which that shall be at this point. I've been trying to give them all the chimeric quality of some of the other biblical creatures -
