*lol* Heavens, you saved my morning! They look just perfect, especially their postures. Very fitting! And the motorcycles in the background... War is really beautiful and I like Famine's face and Death's grumpiness. Pollution reminds me of my little brother. (Now, that's worrying!) Oh, and I love their assorted boots/shoes and Death's not-so-very-becoming ...ahm... bone-tight biker-wear.
Great picture!

Omg. This is awesome. The art is fantastic and Famine saying the words "pretty princess" made me cackle like a hynena, which is not very becoming, but there it is.

Oh, this is hilarious and I love it. I think my favorite part is the explanations of their bike failure, which get to be more obvious as you read left to right. So well-done.

Hee! This is great. I particularly like the fact that DEATH's bike just...died. :)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! "Like a pretty princess!!" *dies*

Okay, really okay. This is PERFECT. And wonderful. And also perfect. And DEATH IN LEATHERS!!!!!! *laughs herself silly*

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Secret A! You are fabulous in so many ways, and so is this pic. I LOVE IT. My Christmas is DEFINITELY merrier now. THANK you.

*sets as wallpaper for duration of season* ^_^

Holy crap, it is TEH AWESOME. To he--Somewhere with the prompts; I am just so GLAD it leapt into your head! ^_^

And as far as I'm concerned, anything involving the Horsefolk = wonderful. And, yes, you DID get F/P. I simply love them; the way Pollution is looking at Famine and leaned toward him...can they just snog madly, now?

Ahem. Sorry. Got away with myself. Thank you a million times, dear. And, also, this makes a kickass wallpaper. *huggles*

Oh, my! Gorgeous work, "Secret" Artist! ;]

Stylish and in-character and "pretty princess" (ROTFLMFAO) and sweet and funny and, and, and, just Brava, my dear!

Had me goin' there for a sec. ;]

Upon further reflection, I still think I know who you are, dear Secret Artist. Either that or I'm being a complete goof -- one or t'other. And time will tell, eh? 8D

From my own addmittedly-meagre experience, minimalism is indeed much trickier than sketching with many-many lines. One can either have a whole whack of lines that suggest a curve, or you can have That. Precise. Curve. I know which one is harder for me ... %]

"In character" was perhaps an odd wording. I meant to convey that their stances, word-choice, and attitudes augment and jibe with colours and appearances to portray characters who, at the very least, are accurate for fanon. (Pollution and Famine flirting isn't something I'd be bold to call canon, but we're all familiar enough with the idea of them doing so ...)

An absurd little "What If" it might be, my dear, but I stand by my "Brava!" ;D

Oh, I'd never out you, my dear! Not naming names, just making educated guesses .... 08]

Hey, the angel and demon we know and love are versions of the ones GNeil & PTerry wrote about, in the same way theirs-in-the-book were versions of the "real thing". Who's to say fanon is wrong? Except perhaps Aziraphale and Crowley .... ;D

I adore this picture. The way their bikes broke down, the pretty princess line, the characterizations, everything!

This is wonderful. They all look fantastic, and I love the ways each of their bikes has been put out of comission.

This is fantastic! I love Death's posture -- he's seen it all before.

Aw, yes, I love this so much! Famine and Pollution getting some fun out of it at least, Death and War both so grumpy...(has she ever failed at hitch-hiking before? Bet not.) Excellent work!

My favorite comment is War's...

They all look wonderful!

LOL. This is great, and so funny! I love Death's expression, and the fact that his bike just died :-)

can't... stop.... laughing....

Best change of a musical title ever. Period. *bows*

*tries to imagine even the slightest possibility of Crowley picking up hitchhikers* Well, maybe if she suddenly lost the cleavage, gained some poundage and started showing an affinty for books? I bet the flaming Bentlet would have stopped then. ^^

Is it wrong that I want to cuddle Death? He looks like he could use a hug...

Oh this is great! I think everyone's already said all I want to say about how fabulous this is - with the bikes in the background, and the explanations and just looks on their faces! It's absolutely brilliant :)

Hee, so much fun! *dies* It's really brilliant!
