Realized that the eyes wouldn't be visible from the angle the head is tilted at, so I decided to use a toothy demonic grin... seems more menacing anyway. I'll put the old one in scraps.
"From the East came the evil foretold by your forefathers: the three Serpent Riders, guardians of death everlasting. Their form was shrouded by black cloaks. Only their eyes were revealed; sunken with evil , dreadful intensity. As a sign of power they brought peace to the Eastern provinces. Those who believed in the sign created a temple in their honor; and it bore the mark of the crossed trident. Their worshipers were the Order of the Sign; blind followers, without will, void of spirit. As the power of the Order grew, even the seven kings of the Earth followed like cattle behind them. And after they controlled the great nations two Riders left the world. Only D'Sparil, the weakest of them remained while his disciples traveled the earth cleansing it in preparation for its descent. " -Heretic
D'Sparil, the most awesome baddie to ever grace the rather narrow gothic fantasy horror shooter genre.
Done in about 6 hours using Artrage.
