The Four Horsemen by CitizenWolfie The Four Horsemen by CitizenWolfie
"And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth."
(Revelation 6: 1-8)

Death is Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII - he tries to destroy the world by summoning a super nova comet in the game.

I love the people you chose to represent them but it's actually Conquest, not Pestilence. Pestilence and Famine are actually meant to be the same horseman.

I think there is some debate about conquest/pestilence. I was going for the more widely used interpretation of pestilence, war, famine, death purely because the themes seemed more specific and better suited to the characters

i dont think theres much debate,the bible literally says conquest. but pestilence does fit the characters better

One thing that presents a problem: what music plays in the background when these four crest a hill on their steeds? I fear that even the combined epicness of a LoZ and FF soundtrack will not be epic enough, though. For this drawing, we have to go right to Nightwish!


...or Guile's theme, cause, you know, it goes with everything.

Famine - Ganondorf from Legend of Zelda series (power hungry tyrant).

Death - Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII (tries to destroy the world).

But Ganondorf's true form is a pig/swine and his whole purpose is to become ruler of Hyrule which would mean him becoming all rich and powerful.

He would cause famine for the people of Hyrule if he had his greedy way!

I really like this. Looking at the artist's comments box and relaying back to the characters, this makes so much sense. I love it. :heart:

Great job!

I enjoyed the parody of Apocalypse written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett in "Good Omens" where pestilence has been done away with thanks to advances in modern medicine. He was replaced with Pollution...the new modern evil.
