i have spent a little time at the museum lately, which inspired me to take on a classic subject .
thanks much steven!
Thats very awesome! love Death up there in the air lol he looks very creapy lovely, I like how you used humans has the four horsemen, first time ive seen it dont like that.. but it turned out great very nicley done keep em coming:)
thanks rita! you shopuld definitely do your own version, may turn out wonderful and will definitely be fun!
OH Jeff, this is so great. I just read lately a book (Terry Pratchett) and he said, first they were 5 (!) and he described them so well - would be sure fun to paint them... but probably not as good
hey kay, thanks for commenting on this. the color scheme is my favorite part, and i am glad you point it out.
Love the colors and emotion in this...Great old bones guy.
thank you neven! the color scheme was important here, and i love that you find that it works!
Very cool. I adore the color scheme that sets the brooding mood of the image.
thank you very much stephanie! glad you stopped by.
Like Karyn was saying, I really love the subtle tones of gold in the background! Looks great.
hey marley, thanks fer stopping over fellah! glad you like the changes made, and thanks for your input in the wip forum(i want to push the light/dark scheme in some works but not to the point where viewers with other rigs start losing the picture)i did indeed trim it down for compositional purposes. good eye mate;)
thanks karyn! i think you are about right on concerning my palette on this one-i had just gotten back from a whistler exhibit when i sketched out the project:)
hey uwe! thanks and i am looking forward to seeing your take.
thank you ellen! glad you stopped by.
Jeff: I really love the way you painted the big skeleton, and the subtle splashes of color you added--especially the way the gold and black meet on the horizon--reminds me of the palettes Whistler or Sargent used. And the lighting is well done too!
ohthats cool - i am currently working on a four horsemen piece too - yours is breathtaking - congrats!!!
oops sorry for the the posts below was supposed to be only one =( saying:
Riders of the apocalypse? Sweet looking love the death storm that is following
Yea i guess it is fantasy afterall ^^.Its certainly come a long way since it was in W.I.P, seems compositionally more balanced now aswell was a bit skinnier wasn't it?.Love the way the lighting is cast on the horses and the horses themselves look stunning!.a very nice piece of art jeff.~Marley
Very powerful. Marvelous sense of urgency and motion.
