here are some really rough sketches for the four protagonists of the apocalypse. if you can read italian for the love of god igNORE the dumb half italian half english stuff I write on my drawings lmao and most definitely do not follow the color indications cause most of it is inaccurate and wasn’t followed for the final drawing. thank u. also gomen this is gonna take a while
ok let’s start with Yusei. his outfit is the simplest one and the first I started thinking about so I didn’t even bother drawing a full figure for him lmao what you need to know is that his trademark is the hood: when it’s pulled up, Yusei’s head becomes a skull uwu on the back is written ‘HAIL SATAN’ and on the front ‘666’ cause he’s metal like that. none of the four protagonists of the apocalypse owns a horse like the original four horsemen but Yusei has a black motorcycle he rides on to bring death and suffering and stuff. the boots are black with orange shoelaces.
Judai’s main colors are red and mint. I find them two colors that clash but still somehow go well together. the things on his back are buboes (which he despises quite a lot haha), the handkerchief over his mouth (his trademark) spells ‘SICK’ and the shirt spells ‘COUGH BLOOD’. his gloves are black because supposedly people get ill when PlagueJudai puts his gloved hands around their neck. oh and the inner part of his coat is mint too.
for Yami the idea from which I started was ‘something war-ish looking with a hint of sexy and also lots of silver’ and this is exactly what I did fghd in the final drawing I totally forgot about the accessorizes on his neck weh weh however mind that he also wears a couple of dog tags. also in the final drawing his eyes are empty because he’s been blinded by rage yeh his trademark is the flag (it spells ‘armageddon’; it should probably spell ‘apocalypse’ but me and rea both prefered armageddon better hehe) which he uses to bring war and chaos by sticking it into the ground.
and finally Yuuma! when you think of someone representing hunger you could be thinking about a very underweight character. however I really didn’t feel like giving him this look so I played around with the bright pink-pitch black contrast in his clothes instead, trying to give the illusion of the collarbones sticking out and the missing flesh but I’m not sure it’s that noticeable at a first glance?? his trademark is the lollipop. more and more people suffer from hunger with every lick he takes.
and that’s all I guess if anyone feels like drawing them I’d be really happy ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
