Great work, but Strife is to mirror the rider of the white horse, the black horse is Famine. also most common name for the rider of the white horse is Conquest

"I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out (conquering) and to (conquer)". Revelation 6:2

the interpretation of pestilence come much later in 6:7-8 and generally is to mean all the horseman together not each as an individual.

also if we are to stick with the logic of the horse names Ruin follows War, Despair follows Death. using the biblical names of the last to it would fallow that
Strife follows Conquest, and
Pestilence follows Famine
as disease is more readily associated with a famine than with conquest.

I know, I have gotten many of these comments before but I am just recounting what is in the Darksiders universe; that Strife is Conquest(also known as Pestilence in pop-culture, hence why I put that in the title instead) and that Fury is Famine.  I think I'll just change the name in the title to Conquest however to clear up confusion since everyone has come up to me with numerous different questions over it all ^^;

Hope you liked the drawing though! :heart:

I know the horsemen of Darksiders were War, Fury, Strife and Death, but I always prefer Famine and Pestilence :3 mostly because of this:

"It began with conflict., friendships destroyed and vows shattered. The kingdoms began to fall, and so the first horseman, War, rode forth.
The armies marched against each other, the farms and factories given over to support the conflict. People began to starve, and die. And so the second horseman, Famine, rode forth.
Men and women alike fell and became corpses, on the battlefield and in the home. Flies crawled and disease spread. And so the third horseman, Pestilence, rode forth.
Disease spread like wildfire as the battles raged, all creeds falling to wounds, starvation and disease, until all was utterly consumed. Then, only then, did the fourth horseman ride.
And his name was Death.

:nod: Yes, you are correct, Fury and Strife are the proper names for the Darksiders characters! However, I have noticed that whenever people saw them they said 'no, this is "____" not "____"," even though they were fans of the series :faint: so I named them the proper ones :XD: Avoided a lot of confusion and rants from people lol

I love that scripture :love:

I prefer the original names, as I said. Honestly I expected them to be Famine and Pestilence, and when Death was given Strife's handgun I had a blank moment. Then when I heard all four of them I got kind of disappointed.

You like it?
Made it up on the spot :3

I had thought that they would be the original names as well. However they must not have sounded 'cool' enough :giggle:

I do like it! :dummy:
