And along with it’s defeat, september was defeated.
the names on the tombs are divaratrika, Kharla, Naalsuul, Sandaur.
Amazing how shading and hues can transform the picture…Diva looks more ominous with the blue overtones and the shadows, Sarv more menacing with the lower light source cast up on her face, Zala more gaunt and spooky with the backlighting casting shadows over her and the baby, and the spotlight effect on Snad reinforces her position as public enemy number one (“get her up against the wall”). Fantastic job, Kern…
Mahahaha! Farewell September, all hail October! “starts binge watching horror flicks” lol
Oh good! Maybe the next time the Fen Wolves are camping out, Go’dan can regale us with some ghost stories! :D
btw when I was about five years old, I was at my grandparents’ house in Japan, and late one night after everyone went to sleep, I decided to sneak off and turn on the TV to watch kai-dan ghost stories by myself, and got busted by my aunt :)-
You’ve defeated the colossus, but at what cost?
At the cost of… another commission now need to be done? :D
Immediately moving on to the next giant beast to be taken down? Yep, definitely Shadow of the Colossus.
The way famine and death turned out is just amazing! The lighting is really eye catching.
I forgot – who was Sandaur?
He was a dude in the Nuqrah pre-Civil-War chapter that punched some mercenaries and then got Fus-Roh-Dah’ed off of Nega’s tower by Shodun. People were pretty bummed about it at the time.
One of the Orthorbbae teachers from like chapter 2–he showed up again after the time skip in the Nuqrah’shareh act and ended up being pushed to his death by Shodun during the Balsii coup(well technically it was a spellsong that actually forced him out the window I think, but uh, yeah >.>)
wiki link if you’re still curious/that didn’t ring any bells :>
A lovely bit of art, but a minor nitpick: The four horsemen are Death, War, Famine, and Conquest.
According to some interpretations. Usually, they’re Death, War, Famine, and Pestilence. Although, some combine the two, and get Five Horsemen (War, Death, Famine, Pestilence, and Conquest).
There’s also Kaos/Chaos, who left before they became famous.
Pestilence retired in 1936 muttering about penicillin and Pollution took over.
It is open to interpretation. The original source, namely the last book of the New Testament, variously called (The Book of) Revelation(s), The Revelation of Saint John the Divine, and The Apocalypse of John, just describes the riders’ mounts and the equipment given to them. The rider of the red horse (War) gets a sword. The rider of the black horse (Famine) gets a pair of scales and also a spiel indicating that staple foods are going to be hugely expensive. The rider of the pale horse is the only one actually given a name in the text (Death)… and even he gets referred to as “Strife” in some interpretations. Now, the rider of white horse was given a crown, which can symbolise victory and conquest, and also a bow… and “Pestilence” does seem to be a later interpretation or attribution. But “Pestilence” is now the name by which this figure is most commonly recognised.
