Default April, 2013: Death Knight / Warhorse

Hi all...

This month's theme is to create a Death Knight and his powerful steed, aka War Horse. This does not have to be related to the World of Warcraft Death Knight class, btw... but more of a general concept. The Death Knight can of course be either mounted or standing beside his horse. He can be solitary pondering his quest (aka Frazetta's iconic Death Dealer), in the midst of battle (Highlander's Kurgan), or riding along a misty moonlit road. Clearly a lot of room for interpretation!

This month's theme: Death Knight and his Warhorse

Good Luck!

edit: Winners announced!

Default Gender?

Hi, I noticed you used male pronouns but can we change the gender for this assignment and make the knight female? Thanks

hi cassandre,

i am pretty sure -> the gender does not really matter. I cannot image that your image will be ignored because of a female knight.

Default wips

well, i tried a bunch of things today, really wanted it to be a woman, as you can see from the wips but whatever, i think its much cooler as a good ole skeleton. I do realize that the design of the character is not emphasized and that it is more a illustration but i was in an illustration graphicy mood soooooo thats what i made. The butterflies started as just a cool compositional element and a hint of the feminine. But then when i ditched the girl idea i kept them around, theyre unexpected and i think in some cultures they represent souls...so might be very appropriate.
