War by alicexz War by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE HERE

She was beautiful, but she was beautiful in the way a forest fire was beautiful: something to be admired from a distance, but not up close.
And she held her sword, and she smiled like a knife.


A concept art I did of War, the Apocalyptic Horseperson from Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's excellent book Good Omens. It's quite a rough sketch but seemed well liked on my artblog so here it is. I took the forest fire metaphor a bit literally... I'd love to draw the rest of the Horsepeople at some point, as well as the other characters, but I'm due for a re-read!

Inspired by the facial features of the beautiful Genevieve Padalecki, who is my dreamcast for this character. I hear there's a miniseries in the (very early) works...!

Hi I was wondering if I could please post this artwork on my tumblr blog chat-over-coffee.tumblr.com/ as a creative writing prompt? I would credit you and post a link to your deviantart.

This is really amazing. I love the fiery effect! I wish I had a tablet so I could work on drawing things like this. ; u ;

Oh my goodness as soon as I saw the title and the portrait I knew what the character was! Great job, she looks spot on and your rough style is beautiful.

I knew it when I first saw the Thumbnail that it was Scarlet from Good Omens. Which says a lot about my esteem for you as an artist.

Idk if anyone has said this but this looks a lot like rachelle lafeverre or however you spell it. Victoria from the first two twilights! Just something I noticed and thought was cool! Besides that this is absolutely stunning. Like honestly breathtaking. I'd saw off my left hand to have an eighth of your talent and I'm an art student who honestly
Is pretty good. Your just like.... YOUR DAVID TENNANT STATUS AND IM LIKE JACKIE TYLER. That's how good you are.
