Ov Judgment DCLXVI by VisceralAsphyxiation Ov Judgment DCLXVI by VisceralAsphyxiation
This is my vision of the apocalypse/judgment day. As what was written in the bible, there were 7 seals releasing the 4 horsemen.
As what you witness in the original illustrations they are only human sized beings that rode horses.
I made a twist to makes things more creative.
1st horsemen - Look closely enough to witness 3 insect like creatures with wings[not all 3 looks exactly like an insect], these beings resembles Pestilence.
2nd horsemen - He is the big demon in the middle holding a large axe-hammer, he resembles War.
3rd horsemen - Look at the axe-hammer, witness a disembodied female corpse with her hand hanging down, the fingers are pointing at a head which belongs to a being holding up scales, he resembles Famine.
4th horsemen - Below Famine you see a dashing "Grim ripper", holding a scythe and a severed female head, he resembles Death.

Done with ball point pen.

In my prime I desire to make it gruesome and brutal as I can at the time. Yes all the horsemen revolves around War since War for me is the most dominant. In fact War caused death, famine and pestilence in the first place. Pestilence for me are vermin that feast upon the dead bodies from war, in that Death is already included, and Famine is another aftermath of war because people also suffer hunger/famine when their country is at war. Therefor War is my bringer in this piece. The idea of judgment in this is bringing pain and fear in a vile act of purification of cleansing sinners by totally deteriorating them both in physical and mental ways of punishment. They're still gonna have an eternal party in hell.
DCLXVI is the roman numeral for 666 which is present in the demon's eye below, and also 3 inverted sinners above which have the number 6 carved in each of their foreheads. In this apocalyptic madness, hell did break loose as the ground ruptures and hurls shards of bone structure and organic matter, forming upwards in different directions soon to cover the earth.
