four horses of the apocalypse

Day 2 is a centaur and @tinkerinks made me want to keep him by saying hes one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse lmao

Okay, so I was thinking was if the four horsemen of the apocalypse were centaurs. Cuz ya know horsemen. Honestly it would probably be more terrifying if the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse were centaurs cuz horses are terrifyingly large so I'd imagine centaurs are huge

I really like the image of a centaur trying to wear floor-length robes.

Also, are there Renaissance Faire participants who wear those rider costumes with puppet horses and go as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse? I sure hope so.

The first horseman is related to military conquest. One interpretation, which was held by evangelist Billy Graham, casts the rider of the white horse as theAntichrist. He rides on a white horse and wears the victor’s crown.

The rider of the second horse is often taken to represent War or mass slaughter. His horse’s color is red. In some translations, the color is specifically a “fiery” red. This color, as well as the rider’s possession of a great sword, suggests blood that is to be spilled. The second horseman may represent civil war as opposed to the war of conquest that the first horseman is sometimes said to bring

The third horseman rides a black horse and is generally understood as Famine.  The horseman carries a pair of balances or weighing scales, indicating the way that bread would have been weighed during a famine.The indicated price of grain is about ten times normal, with an entire day’s wages buying enough wheat for only one person, or enough of the less nutritious barley for three, so that workers would struggle to feed their families

The fourth and final horseman is named Death. Of all the riders, he is the only one to whom the text itself explicitly gives a name. Unlike the other three, he is not described carrying a weapon or other object, instead he is followed by Hades. However, illustrations commonly depict him carrying a scythe (like the Grim Reaper), sword, or other implement.

i’m making a pact with savage, i’m letting chaos by my side. we tried clean, we tried begging, we came to the war with our hands folded in prayer. god forbid we become the aggressor, we were told to let our buildings burn if it meant giving fire a chance. i am done with it. i arrive equipped with rage, kiss Ares openmouthed until we both see red, fly in on a hell chariot.

fuck you. i’m sick of waiting peacefully while others go to death. i come with blood on my hands, link arms with the furies, ride all four horses of the apocalypse. call me achilles.

fuck you.out of pure spite, i came here to live.

Conquest | War | Famine | Death

“… And behold, a White Horse, and She who sat on it had a Bow; and a Crown was given to Her, and She went out conquering and to Conquer.

“…  And behold, a Red Horse, went out; and to Him who sat on it, it was granted to take Peace from the earth, and that Men would slay one another; and a Great Sword was given to him.”

“…  And behold, a Black Horse; and He who sat on it had a Pair of Scales in his hand. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a Denarius, and three quarts of barley for a Denarius; but do not damage the oil and the wine.”

“… And behold, an Ashen Horse; and She who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with Her.”

Today I added to the research in my sketchbook and worked from a piece by Muybridge to make a gif of a horse running. This is going to be helpful when designing based on my research into the four horses of the apocalypse, as it will give me a good base to work from and decent understanding of how they move, should I chose to do this instead of walking cycles. Overall, I think it has been a successful day.

I let my sister decide the costume since the raijinshuu and Laxus is her all time favorite characters of the series. 

For everyone who doesn’t know: In Christianity, the end of days are supposed to be brought by the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The white horse represent pestilence (illness), black horse represent famine, pale horse represent Death, and the red horse represent war.
