Not finished, but I started colouring my drawing of the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse from Good Omens in Simpsons style. The original b/w version can be found here.

Left to right, top to bottom: War, Famine, Pollution (who took over after Pestilence quit*), and Death.

Just for fun, the songs I listened to while working on them:

War: "The Red Baron" (Sabaton)
Famine: "Head Like a Hole" (Nine Inch Nails)
Pollution: "Poison" (Alice Cooper)
Death: "Kyrie Eleison" (the rendition from Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs)

EDIT: Reuploaded with more added.

Dammit, I completely neglected to comment on last week's pic and I apologise for that. It's was a good pic, and I'm sorry I couldn't say that earlier. And I'm looking forward to seeing that colouring complete! It looks really neat so far, and I remember enjoying the original drawing, so yeah, colour me impressed!...

... I'll just leave now.

That pun was so cheesy it became hilarious again. :D

Thank you very much, on both counts! I'm looking forward to finishing it too, leaving a Simpsons style picture in black and white just feels so unfulfilling.

Hope we'll have you in Creativity soon!

"I used to think my life was a psychological thriller. Now I realise it's a romantic comedy!"

It's a trifecta of Chrisposts! I actually drew this the week before last, but a bunch of stuff got in the way of uploading it. I went a bit over the hour with this one.

More Joker and Sophie. Not meant to be fanservicey, and at the same time, it kind of is... I wanted to have him half-naked but dominant, her dressed but uneasy, in order to lessen the power disparity between them. Wanted to show more of Sophie, but... time.

Con-crit welcome, as usual.

EDIT: Reuploaded and improved Sophie's shoulder.

I'm really impressed by that one! It show how much effort you put into getting the Joker's anatomy and pose right, and it paid off. He looks very realistic and, for want of better word, "physical". I think only Sophie's legs look a little off, but I'll attribute that to the time issue, and her face and hair are really well executed. I really enjoyed that, Chris!

Couldn't be more flattered, Fernie. :) I'll keep trying to improve!

EDIT: And in case anyone's wondering, I don't intend to draw a lot more of this edgy... pairing? I've planned one or two more pictures at most.

Yeah I think Fernie said the most of it, but I think it's neat there's some little bits of clothing folds in there too!

Very much obliged! I want to get better at anatomy, but at least I'm having fun learning.

I realised I've been drawing the society clown a lot. Like, a lot. So here's burnie burnface.

I based his unharmed side on Aaron Eckhart's performance in The Dark Knight, but the burn scars were based on a concept art that ended up not being used on account of just being too unpleasant.

Con-crit always welcome!

EDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm not taking credit for the graffiti'd text on the poster, I saw that in some other fanart.

Might not be in for tonight, feeling pretty weary and only three hours sleep isn't much good. Did do this in advance though!

Very clean and good-looking, May! EDIT: Plus, looks like you nabbed the 400th post.

Khajiit has wares, if you have coin...

Love those guys, the ones in Skyrim especially had such a cool voice.

Okay that's a great song parody and the pic's looking nice! See you're adjusting to putting characters in an actual environment. Not sure if intentional but the way it's framed makes the merchant seem kinda lonely.

Thank you very much! Yes, needless to say I too love Khajiit and their growly voices. They're my favourite Elder Scrolls race.

Probably not a coincidence. I pictured him just having stopped to set up his wares (if you have coin), like the fella at the start of Aladdin.
