The Sandman by bullsik The Sandman by bullsik
My version of Neil Gaiman's character. I'm really proud of this artwork. The base of this piece was a crayon drawing, which was digitally remastered in Photoshop. It was drawn without using a model - just imagination.

Normally I don't go for Sandman fanart, because I'm always afraid that it just won't do the series justice.

You however, pull it off. Somehow, you really managed to catch the was Sandman felt and looked for me.

This is awesome! He looks kind of scared. I love it. The skulls in the background are cool too.
quizzabella Featured By Owner May 23, 2007
Ooh, love it! Gorgeous colouring and although beautiful, it's a little bit creepy just like the character himself.
ChristophTofu89 Featured By Owner May 16, 2007
That is an awesome pic! The facial expression is just great, and it really stares at you...great work!
fish3k1 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2007
VERY nice - I'd say this would be from the "trapped in a glass bubble for seventy years" part of the story, but I guess I could be wrong... that's just what comes to mind when I see Oneiros looking so emaciated and naked :P

Gorgeous, gorgeous rendering.

this is incredible. The body has a real thickness to it and you've captured Mr.SandMan in a really charming pose. I love the foot, the face, hell - you've even made that 80's huge hair look good without breaking character! I am in awe. Thank you for making this. You made my day.

My mom got me interested in Neil Gaiman several years ago, she then told me about the comic-book series he author. It was instant love (huge fan of graphic novels, not so much Marvel-style comics though) this is a lovely portrayal of Dream. ^^

I really dig your take on the Sandman! It's one of my favorite comics of all time and you have truly done the Lord Shaper justice. Check out my version of him if you like - [link]

Wow. Just... wow. There are definitely not many The Sandman fan pictures out there, and this is a VERY welcome addition. The way the tendons, veins, and muscles stick out... it just looks amazing! THIS is how The Sandman should look!
