THE FOUR HORSEMEN by Yayashin THE FOUR HORSEMEN by Yayashin
Hi,
I always wanted to do something about this subject, without necessarily following the exact mythology. I tried a very dynamic composition
I use Zbrush & Poser to create a baseline for horses and skeleton.

Thanks for appreciations.
Yayashin

THE FOUR HORSEMEN by *Yayashin. The composition is so dramatic; you can feel the force and power behind the horsemen! ( Suggested by kaaaay and Featured by alicexz )

I think this piece is really well done, though perhaps the horses might look better in different colors? They're all the same white/ black socked.Though I know it probably wouldn't work too great with the dark atmosphere, but something to try, if you haven't already, and I notice you drew the horses hooves so that you didn't have to draw the underside (the bottom, where the horses shoes would go). Perhaps, on the second horse from the right of the image, the one that seems to be the closest rearing horse. You could alter to show that? Otherwise Good! <3

This is a striking piece of art, well-rooted in traditional art going back at least to the Medieval era. Yet there is something modern also. The whitish glow, the raggedness of the outlines, the metallic, spiky teeth, the burning eyes, all place this piece squarely in early 21st-century art.
The limited palette with the stark white, the blue/purple, and the red/orange cause the horses to emerge from the background with explosive energy. So much here is spiky, -- the trees, the rain, the manes, the teeth, the hair, the bones. The rounded parts seem limited to the joinys of the horses and riders, and the hooves.
This piece excites the terror and dread of what the riders symbolize: War, Famine, Disease, and Death, and does it with deep emotion, insight, and talent. This is only the second critique where I gave 20 stars , but it deserves it so much.

I ordered a print of this piece. It's amazing! It's even more incredible in real life than on a computer screen. Great work!!
