Fifth Horsewoman of the Zombie Apocalypse by karichristensen Fifth Horsewoman of the Zombie Apocalypse by karichristensen
Did this as my project for the 2012 Illustration Master Class. Brom is one of my favorite artists and he was the special guest so I had to do something gothic. My wife had the great suggestion that she'd like to see an evil version of a unicorn, that spawned the idea.

There's concept sketches and a little bit of the process on my blog.

EDIT:

Wow, the DD was a very nice surprise. Thanks for all the comments and favs. This was a bit of a new process so it's nice to get affirmation I'm headed in a good direction. I've read every comment and I really appreciate your interest in my work!

This is incredible! I'm getting married in October and my fiance and I are using the theme "Magic: The Gathering". For the theme I am making my own Magic cards for the guest place cards. However, I cannot draw anything quite this elaborate for the images and was wondering if I could use this picture for one of the place cards? I would put your name and web address under the artist section on the card and will not be profiting off of these in any way. I can even show you what the card will look like when it is finished if that will help your decision. Let me know!

Thanks!

i think you have it a bit wrong not the fifth horseman but death herself
i would like to see this as an illustration in a bible or as a mosaic in a church
the ancient Greeks had the right idea when they made her a woman

simply gorgeous and terrifying
