    Marco, I love the head of nr.3 and the body of nr.2 - put them together and you got a kick-ass concept (IMO, of course)! Very nice sketches all of them, curious to see the outcome.

    Tei, your concept looks really sweet, love the demons and stuff following in deaths wake!

    final thing...

    CHOW #69 - Death's Horse


    Description
    There is a bare and barren land which bridges life and death. There, tattered mists twine around broken trees, and the souls of the newly dead toil, bent and wandering over the lifeless earth. Their trudging pilgrimage is drawn - like a magnet, to one place - a vast, creaking carousel in the middle of this deserted land. The carousel is tortuously constructed, and infinitely huge. Ranks and ranks of horses, built from bone, wood and tattered cloth, spit and snarl from their rotting posts.
    Legend has it that this incongruous carousel was built by a god, half demented with grief after the death of his mortal child, in the darkness before the morning of the world. The carousel turns endlessly, creaking and splintering under its own, ancient weight. It acts as a gateway to another place. The horses of wood and bone bear the wretched souls of the dead away.

    ATAnderson - thanks for comments and help really like your different take on the subject - he's pretty scary...

    Bumskee - love your entry - its so inspiring but simultaneously completely demoralizing for an amateur like me...bah

    rodrigo - really like the idea of the souls being trapped inside the horse, and your expressive composition

    dragonsnail - looks so professional and dramatic. Glad you took bluefooted's advice re: the 'tattered-ness'

    teigrob - really like that subtle painting

    Marco - 1 has the most character and humour, 5 & 6 have good design elements.

    Nuru - great start, does look like wood but also muscle, good work.

    I think I might be leaning a bit hard on the derived thing, everyone else is making a horse, I am making a horseman thing, I hope that's ok.

    Adam.

    Would you have me rise up Ol’ Sifter? Nay, I would not! There are none so evil in this Hell that they should ride upon his terrible form or even glance upon his wrongful skins!

    Sketch

    CHOW #69 - Death's Horse

    WIP: Some changes in the sketch with skin texture, to make it look a little sicker, and form, too make it look more horse like and less dragon like.

    CHOW #69 - Death's Horse

    Had to finally let this one go. Wish I had more time to work on it, especially the skin, but oh well. Work and family tomorrow, no time to paint.

    Final Image

    CHOW #69 - Death's Horse


    Hmmm...the background ended up all wonky. Weird, doesn't look like that until I post it. Oh well.

    allways with this atachment option, Lynn, you need to host the pic somewhere and then you use the linktool.

    first of all i have to say damn theres good artist in here... mad probs to everyone ^^

    CHOW #69 - Death's Horse

    penumbra give as a real good story many started work on that point of wiew

    but that text was not the instructions to this "job" but the stuff what was needed to be done was death's horse AND death (penumbra it isn't butting you down or anything... for now your work is best and most imaginative my vote goes to you ^^)

    i didnt want to get focus from deaths so i made death litle bigger and big ego so big guy an so on.. hes/her precense is so huge and stuff like that...

    we'r not having human in deaths coat... something "different" so thats why he/she is so big

    story for the horse and death at the same time:

    people say that eyes are the road to peoples soul... dead people dont have soul so neather do these fellows... and if there is road to soul then there cant be road there if there isn't nothing to go... thats why horse doesn't have eyes.. death doens't have face.. just form ...human like form

    there is little stuff that makes difference in horce... skin there isn't one... just muscles... bridle is comming from piercings from horses muzzle. hoof's are claw like thingies... little stuff so it's reconicable...

    in my mind they are hollow like thingies... empty inside and thats it i hope you like it ^^ peace, love and understanding

    this is final

    CHOW #69 - Death's Horse

    Death rides a pale horse

    Also Death is kind of pissed because his girlfriend left him and she took his cloak.

    Penumbra: SWEET! Love the hands for hooves - that's pretty terrifying.

    DragonSnail: It's looking great - the rendering is really well done.

    Scotwith1T, very nice concept, even though a bit confusing lines at some places, but wow if you manage to pull this of! Can't wait to see what becomes of it!

    Nuru, very interesting concept with a wooden horse, I dare say it's one of a kind.

    nephilim, your sketch looks good, though the hindlegs could use some extra work - the upper part bends a bit too much. Keep going!

    Vorace, very dynamic, though I'm not overly sure about where those forelegs are going or how they are bent - could use some refinement. Deaths arm (the one seen over the horsehead) is at a slightly odd angle as well, maybe bend it down a wee bit? Love the scythe though!

    deftonys: Verrrry nice rendering so far! Though I think death looks a bit big compared to his mount (upper part - legpart seems quite normal), and the part between the humerusbones (the chest of the horse) goes up too far on the horses neck. Perhaps that is consious though, in that case, never mind.

    wagon - that's some concept! Keep going!

    Spitch: Sweet rendering! Love the shadow over deaths face, though I'm not wild about the scythe going down in the crook of her arm like that - it tangents too much with the chest line. Pretty good anatomy on the horse, and I like the colors - the red on the hooves is a nice touch!

    Penumbra, your WIP is to die for. I just wish there was more!
