The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse - War by KatieAlves The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse - War by KatieAlves
The Four Horsemen(women?) Of The Apocalypse - War

This took about 3 different attempts to get right. Originally, the eyes were a big mask and the lips mirrored the shape of the eyes, but I think I like this better. Let me know what you think! 

If you have any suggestions on the next two horsemen, let me know! They're going to be difficult. 

I asked for suggestions on what themed series I should do next and I loved this idea! So thanks to Dawn Dusk, Heather Blair O'Donnell and Kelsey Tremaine Coon for suggesting this to me!

A series on the zodiac would be cool... I'm sure it's been done, but I'd love to see your approach. :)

Pestilence/Pollution/Conquest (all the White Horse) could be done in several ways ... You could go with the whole disease/plague thing for Pestilence or you could go with a sorta bloody and battered look for Conquest.

Famine (the Black Horse) could be done as a sort of skull/sunken in type look.  Famine is also associated with weighing scales and bread/wheat - so you could do brown/golden tones.

Pestilence - Definitely greens, zombie-like makeup. The idea behind Pestilence is its disease, plague, and pests.  Best of luck.

I don't think enough people take make-up artistry seriously. People like you can change that. :)

Pestilence is also referred to as 'Conquest'. Perhaps you could do something that resembles a self-righteous overlord, or a malevolent warlord. Famine seems pretty straightforward, think gaunt! :)

Pestilience could be fun if you had a transition from healthy to diseased ^w^ As for famine maybe you could have locusts all over your face??

Pestilence should have murky greenish brown colors like rotten meat and mold.

Famine (which hopefully I will be posting tomorrow... if Deviant Art lets me upload that is)
and then Conquest/Pestilence.

Oooo. For pestilence you could focus in shades of green and greys, maybe like swampy colors? I typically associate them with rot and decay. Perhaps something to make you see like a corpse, even c:


Cant wait to to see the rest :la:

Conquest could be something lacework and regal.

i think it would be really cool if for Famine you were able to make yourself look really gaunt and drawn out. big bags under your eyes and hard cheekbones. Not a whole lot of colour, mainly greys and some blues. 


Anyways this is absolutely incredible!!! Great job :D
