The Headless Horseman by IrenHorrors The Headless Horseman by IrenHorrors
(Music: Danny Elfman [Sleepy Hollow OST] – Introduction)
The Headless Horseman has been a motif of European folklore since at least the Middle Ages, and he is also a fictional character from the short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, but as you can guess I mostly inspired by Tim Burton's film adaptation Bat 

Pigmented ink fineliner, watercolor and a bit of Photoshop

The headless horseman is also in Skyrim. He can be seen riding at night, sometimes if you follow him, he guides you to a bunch of skeletons Nod  
Also, great work! Heart  (btw, the horse looks like Shadowmere)

Love this; Sleepy Hollow is my favorite Tim Burton movie! I have a question: do you do tattoo designs? I am looking to get a Headless Horseman tattoo and really love your rendition! Lemme know if we can work out a commission or something! (That's if you would even consider it haha)

Epic. Love the style. Similar to the Disney headless horseman but much more sinister in angles and color. I dig it
