Steampunk Apocalypse by ShadesOfEarth Steampunk Apocalypse by ShadesOfEarth
Steampunk Apocalypse, 2010.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse... all steampunk'd up.

<3

PS, if you're curious, there is indeed a significance to the time on the clocks in the background.

War = 11:11, which is the date of Remembrance Day in Canada (Nov.11)
Pestilence = the time of my most recent doctor's appointment.
Famine = When I usually eat dinner.
Death = Midnight, the final hour.

I would have thought death would look more like a stage driver with a long cloak.

THIS IS AMAZING. Have you read Good Omens, where Pollution replaces Pestilence?

And War is female.  People literally fight over her, and not just because she's the embodiment of conflict, either.

Did you know that 11/11 is also the day that the Armistice was signed in World War One? (It was signed at 11 A.M. on November 11, 1918.)

Love your art, by the way. :)

Hi there,
Yes I'm impressed.
Would you please email me at merry@TheRSG.co.uk (New website up and coming)
I'd like to print and sell one or two of your pictures, but I need you to email that that;s okay.
You get a couple of things from this:
1. A mention in my website - being built right now
2. some money
The way I work is on commission:
Picture (Your bit) Cost 0
Printing (my bit)  Cost 3
Rent/Rates (me) Cost 1
Sale            (me) Sale 10
Profit           (us)         6
You 66% = 4
Me 33%  = 2
Obviously, sometimes I will print on A3, in which case the costs and profit go up a little to about 6 and 3 profit to you and me.
Normal commissions are between 40 and 50% But, you do all the hard work.
If you're interested, please email me with some A4 samples, I will print them on A4 photo paper, and put them in my gallery
Then I'll add you and them to the website.
If you're interested, then we can agree a way of payment, cheque, paypal, bank transfer, ( I won't say cash because that's not allowed).
Also, If you agree, the I'll need a small photo of you and a paragraph about you for the website, and a little plaque I will print and put next to your photos/prints in the gallery
Anyway, Well done, you. I seriously am impressed with your work
All the best

Thanks for your interest, but I sell these on my own already.  I'm glad you like it though!

Just to be perfectly explicit, I do NOT give you permission to sell any of my artwork.  I do however appreciate you asking.

Thank you!

Really well done! Don't know why, but after seeing this, I thought that Pestilence should've had a steampunked plague doctor mask. Perhaps with cogs around the eyes & respirators coming from underneath the beak?

I thought Pestilence retired because of some newfangled thing called 'Penicillin'. But I love him all the same.

I still can't stop thinking what a fantastic artist like you (-ahem- I'm a fan of Earthsong, here) would do with the Fifth Steampunk Horseman, Pollution.
