The Inspiration for this Animation / Painting derives from:
St John’s Revelation Chapter 19, The New Testament Bible


And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called ‘The Word of God’. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS”


The Studio
Composition is based on a figure designed in Poser 8 animation 3D computer programme. It is the first time I have used a 3D image to work from.
The advantage of being able to move around the figure rather than just relying on quick 2d drawings are enormous . The eye level can be adjusted to
Suit the composition, a drawing from any angle of the subject matter is possible.
This reference can then be used.
