Death:The High Cost of Drawing by theopticnerve Death:The High Cost of Drawing by theopticnerve
This was one of the topics for the Weekly Sketch Group over at the PencilJack forums. But instead of a 1 hour sketch, it got turned into a drawing I worked on till the wee early morning.

Whoops!

Always wanted to draw Death and Sandman for the longest time but never really felt like I could do them justice. Perhaps I'll work on Sandman next. This rendition of Death is based off of Neil Gaiman's fantastic Vertigo comic character Death.

[Edit: Wow thanks for the DD! I feel honored and it's great to get all the wonderful comments and favs from you all :]

Your drawing of human anatomy is astounding. So simple yet chucked full of detail. I love the little tares in the umbrella too! Silly, I know. Lol! :blush:

Thanks! Now that I look back on it, there's things about the anatomy that I'd tweak or draw differently but as an artist yourself, you'd know how we're never satisfied with our stuff when we look back on an old drawing. I'm still really happy with the drawing but when I look back on this, all I see are the things I could have done to make it better lol.

As for the umbrella, I figured that with her quirky personality in the comics, she'd love using an old ratty umbrella with holes in it on a sunny day :D
