This was inspired by the ending of "Thief of Time". I had not seen a drawing of all five Discworld Horsemen yet, so I thought I would give it a go. I have seen Paul Kidby's beautiful painting of the Four Horsemen, and took some details from it (the man does such a great job of getting the characters right, I can't help it) But I made sure not to look at it at all while I was working on this one, so as not to copy anything directly, so I only used what I could remember of that painting.
This one was drawn traditionally and then colored digitally. I ran into a few small problems when working out the details of this piece. Kaos is said to have a sword of burning cold so I originally wanted to have his aura be blue. But Death already has the blue glow in his eyes, so I felt the need to keep his aura blue. So I had to go with purple for Kaos. Also, we do not know what weapons Pestilence, War, and Famine carry. Death has is scythe of course, but I had to go to the source and use what the Book of Revelations says the Horsemen had in their hands. So I gave Pestilence the bow, and Famine the scales, (neither of which I really liked, but I couldn't come up with anything better) but according to the Bible, War should technically have a sword. But since we know Kaos already has a sword I gave War a battle axe instead.
The horses' colors gave me a bit of trouble too. The Bible says that War rides a red horse, and Famine rides a black horse, which was no trouble, but it is well known that Death rides a pale horse. Obviously Terry Pratchett interpreted this to mean white when he created the character of Binky, and that is a fair interpretation, but not when you read that Pestilence rides a white horse. So technically, Pestilence's horse should be a lighter shade than Death's, since white is lighter than pale, but I had to stay true to Binky, so I gave Pestilence a more realistic white horse,and kept Binky the brilliant white that we all know and love. Brown hadn't been used, so I gave Kaos a brown horse to keep them all different.
