DEATH - Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

So I have taken to creating a series of portrait pieces based on the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I started out with the one I thought would cause most trouble and found it less of a challenge that first anticipated.

Drawn with 4H and 3B pencils.

I took some progress pictures with my Smart Phone and Scanned in the finished article later.

Here they are.

Update....of sorts.

Much has been happening in my life that I shall not bore you with, but I have picked up my pencils again and have drawn one or two things I think are worthy of showing off.

Here they are.

The first piece was part of a larger tattoo design I was doing for someone. I have since stopped working on that and decided I wanted to try a more shaded version of what was part of that design. It's my first real take on glass. I was pleased with the results of this doodle.

The second piece was a test of my endurance and I am really pleased I took my time and worked on it over 3 days. The depth I managed to achieve in some places by using only an HB pencil inspired me to purchase a range of H and B pencils. So once I get used to them I should be able to get a great deal more depth :)
