I'm happy to see you are in this contest! I watched your past WIP and i really respect your technique... (Sighht O_o I have no chance :D ) This time i entered the contest...
Good luck !
11 November 2008, 11:06 AM
wow thank you man ! :)
you'll be great mate, can't wait to see what you come up with
11 November 2008, 03:05 PM
OK finally had five mins to think :)
i've decided i want to go for the four horsemen of the apocolypse. All horsemen and horses with be in keeping with their particular theme ( plague, war etc. ) Victoriana/punk styled clothing and they will be riding steam powered brass mechanical horses. got to work on the composition, placement of other characters.
11 November 2008, 12:02 PM
trying out a different composition, wasn't geting far with the other one. It was nice and dynamic but putting in the other 3 characters drew to much attention away.
looking forward to designing the guys :)
'War' may even be entirely mechanical, officer/ samuria steam robot. fun. haha
11 November 2008, 03:25 PM
ok , made a start on 'death' the theme will only be properly clear i guess when the mechanical horses are in.
still weighing up how to light it and such. long way to go!
11 November 2008, 03:37 PM
oh dood that looks sweet :)
kinda a cross of johnny depps "deadman" and "evil dead III"
11 November 2008, 03:55 PM

Juste the same!!!Rocking choice!
11 November 2008, 04:05 PM
cyberone, OKMER > yay :D thanks fellas! hope to do it justice. really keen to crack on with the horses.
11 November 2008, 04:44 PM
'Death' is my favorite Horseman at the moment!
11 November 2008, 05:00 PM
Great start allready, as a concept the 4 horsemen has alot of depth as well, nice choice on the color palette, updates..!
11 November 2008, 12:03 PM
Justame2002 > thanks man, just hope i do it justice! designing the horses now :D
KolorGuild > cool, he was the first one i imagined, next up... war! : )
11 November 2008, 12:23 PM
coming up with the horse design now, there's going to be a differnet design for each horseman.
wondering if the war one should have catapilla tracks... ? :/
11 November 2008, 01:48 PM
Looking good, ace :thumbsup: The rider is kick-ass punk style.
11 November 2008, 02:11 PM
yay :D thanks man!
11 November 2008, 02:29 PM
Hey man, love the pose! Really looks like the dude has a lot of character. Can't wait to see this fleshed out. Good luck.!
11 November 2008, 03:10 PM

11 November 2008, 05:31 PM
phew, feel like i'm getting some where now, going to work on other parts for a while. try not to get bogged down with the details to much.
really looking forward to doing the embers and sparks flying around...
11 November 2008, 07:19 PM
yes, yes, YES!!! so cool man. The horse looks great. I can tell you're taking a lot of the horse's anatomy into mind here for development. Looking strong, my friend.
11 November 2008, 08:25 PM
Raaahh.... I love the thematic and the way I work in !!!
11 November 2008, 11:17 AM

> make sure to add steam wherever necessary depending on the horses' mechanisms ;)

SONIC-X : thanks man : ) really hope so, mad busy at the moment.
Slav : sure mate :D
SNoWs : thanks! need to finallise the design really :/ haha always getting ahead of myself.
11 November 2008, 01:20 PM
here's the close up you asked for :) i'm thinking he's possibly about half done ( not including colour/contrast etc balancing )
11 November 2008, 01:27 PM
the face looks bad ass! the mouth kind of reminds me of iron maiden covers, which are badass as well. love the way you are treating your image.
11 November 2008, 03:36 PM
cheers man :) REALLY need to put in some serious time in to this thing
... but going away for my birthday at the weekend ! eek
11 November 2008, 10:16 AM

11 November 2008, 01:55 PM

12 December 2008, 10:16 AM
Irawan : thanks ! :) cool, i'll try that :D
12 December 2008, 11:19 AM
going to try and push on today, make some significant progress. just too busy lately!
12 December 2008, 02:02 PM
That steam iin the nostrils works nicely.:thumbsup: I dont know if i said it before but i like a lot the death horsemen face.
12 December 2008, 03:50 PM
12 December 2008, 05:45 PM
Looks great. This is going to be fun
12 December 2008, 02:35 AM

12 December 2008, 10:20 AM
VictorRojo, vichar : thanks alot ! haven't touched in a week, just to dam busy :/

12 December 2008, 12:58 PM
I hate you . . . i want to do death! lol... great idea. i only just realised there was a new comp on... bit slow me... will be following this one.
12 December 2008, 02:48 PM
haha hey man there's more than enough room for 2 ! :D
12 December 2008, 07:36 PM
Cool updates, and great details for the steam horse, love the fire in the nostrils, really cool touch! :D The textures are great too! Cheers mate!! :beer:
12 December 2008, 10:39 AM
Ferx : cheers dude :)
just been looking at entrys, the standard is SO high ! i'm scared :)
12 December 2008, 11:12 AM
well another busy week and i've bearly touched it :/ getting left behind by everyone.
12 December 2008, 11:33 AM
nice! just thinking that gun looks a bit long and heavy for him to be stretching his arm out like that, Particularly as the handle is so short in comparison to how long the gun is... and it doesn't look like he has the muscles to hold it up.
12 December 2008, 12:17 PM
i see what you mean, maybe a more upward angle would be good, also the line may draw attention to the centre of the image more ?
12 December 2008, 01:34 PM
yeah an upward angle might be good with his arm bend r something... of course you could argue that he has undead, godly strengh, but it still looks awkward as it is... mainly i think because of how short the guns handle is... almost looks like it will slip out of his hand. i can not tell if draws attention away from the central image of death as havent sene full pic with all elements.
Anyway one of my fav entries so far, dont want to sound like i am nit picking and i know you have just roughed that pose in... just wanted to share my thoughts before you started detailing
12 December 2008, 10:52 AM
:D gee thanks ! :D
sure man :) i'll sort it out! MUST work on it today!
12 December 2008, 11:18 AM
Hey this is very cool.I like the pose of both characters and clothes really brings a steampunk feel to the image.
Waiting for more updates
12 December 2008, 11:31 AM
next charqacter to go in :)
Pestulance: going for a gas mask/locust look. i'm thinking locust will be swarming from his robe...
12 December 2008, 12:40 PM
Micro26 : thanks man, maybe i should bring the cloak some how more inkeeping with the other guys ?
12 December 2008, 04:11 PM
Its becoming great.:thumbsup:
I like the pestulance desing. Maybe some medical bandages on him and some rats going with him will reforce the idea of pestulance.
keep it up!!!
12 December 2008, 10:02 AM
bandages, oo didn't think of that , cool ta :)
going to havelocusts swaming out of his cloak. maybe even brass ones! :/
12 December 2008, 01:28 PM
Excellently weird work Neubius, I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes. How are you doing the colours of the horses; if I'm not mistaken Death's should be pale and War's is red (perhaps some sort of rich Victorian rusty colour)?
12 December 2008, 06:35 PM
hey thanks man :)
ah the colours, yes your right. i looked in to the colours when i started but mangaed to forget all about it. yeah i eckon making wars' horse have more dirty rust would be a great idea, maybe adding some kind of ivory inlays on deaths' may be cool ?
thanks man, really usefull :D
12 December 2008, 06:36 PM
oh, Merry Christmas every one !
if you like that kind of thing :)
01 January 2009, 11:10 AM
ok, holidays over ! :) time to get back to work! little more in, need to get super busy now everyone's leaving me behind!
01 January 2009, 04:54 PM
Nice to see you, back again. Only 4 days to finish. Get out your best.
Cant wait to see the others horsemans.
keep it up:beer:
01 January 2009, 01:12 PM
thanks man. yeah, i'm determind to finish this time ! going to have to boogy!
updates as soon as the site is working properly again :)
01 January 2009, 09:45 AM
getting there a little at a time :/
still no design for 'famine' though..
01 January 2009, 04:58 PM
That's looking very good and with the deadline extended I'm sure you'll get there.
I think Famine has an almost Darwin-like beard in the Durer woodcut of the Four Horsemen. Beards are very Victorian.
Or you could make Famine a very prim and proper Victorian lady. Though don't blame me if your picture becomes too hideous.
Death's scythe handle is perhaps a little thin for that wopping great blade.
01 January 2009, 09:33 AM
EWiLB : thanks man! :) yeah with the extended deadline i reckon i'll ake it now ! yay
i'm liking the victorian lady idea, think i'll go with that, i'm not afraid of the hideous :D haha
nice one mate.
01 January 2009, 10:17 AM
Nicely painted characters. I am sure it is pretty tough to come up with different design horses and try to stick with the steampunk theme. Waiting to see more progress. You're just like me trying to get finished hehe. Good luck with finishing.
01 January 2009, 08:48 AM
beelow : thanks man :) hee yeah, same as always trying to fit this in around work! worth it tho, Fun! :D
good luck mate
01 January 2009, 10:12 AM
Nice work! keep it up!
01 January 2009, 12:26 PM
mrpeace: thanks man :)
01 January 2009, 01:00 PM
Hey, it seems we've chosen the same myth. But your version is completely different than mine. Interesting to see what can be done with one and the same myth. Good luck to you. Looks good so far. :)
01 January 2009, 04:08 PM
hey thanks man! :D cool lemme go check yours out :)
02 February 2009, 10:37 AM
Ah well ! just didn't have the time again! :( between various projects at work and training myself up in Max everynight, i just couldn't get it done. no worries i'll finish this up just for my portfolio soon.
it's been a pleasure painting along side you good people as always :) as soon as i have 5 minutes i'll zoom around and look at every ones entries.
Awesome work all over the place, good luck all !
