Yeah, I’m still enjoying myself playing around with the black pad and silver gel pen from the previous post lol.
In any case, as much as I want to learn how to make these nice, polished illustrations that I see so many awesome artists make, my guilty pleasure is quick, messy drawings. ❤ I LOVE going through artists’ sketch books and drafts, and I actually do admire artists who can somehow make squiggles look, so, so polished! You know it takes skill when they can make SQUIGGLES look elegant.
I’m not quite there yet, but hey. =))))
Anyway, here’s a quick doodle of Dream of the Endless, from one of my favoritest bestest graphic novels of all time, Sandman (Vertigo Comics), penned by my favoritest bestest author of all time, Neil Gaiman.
Good night and sweet dreams. 😀
PS: YES, I SUCK AT TYPOGRAPHY AND MY HANDWRITING IS CHICKEN SCRATCH T__T
Delirium was once Delight. And although that was long ago now, even today her eyes are badly matched; one eye is a vivid emerald green, spattered with silver flecks that move; her other eye is vein blue. Who knows what Delirium sees, through her mismatched eyes?
– Sandman #21: “Season of Mists”, preludium
Do you know why I stopped being Delight, my brother? I do. There are things not in your book. There are paths outside this garden. You would do well to remember that.
– Delirium to Destiny, in Sandman #47: “Brief Lives: 7”
Been a busy, busy day. I’m really tired, and to be honest, I had half a mind to skip posting today. But then again, if I can’t even commit to a promise I made to myself, then I have no business committing to anything or anyone else, LOL. So yeah. Heh.
ANYWAY, I was rushing a doodle for today, and for some reason, it turned into Delirium, from Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel series, Sandman. Though I highly doubt the possibility of this, in case you have never heard of it before, go read it. It’s awesome.
I was also trying out something new in this doodle, though I’m not sure if it shows. It has something to do with Adobe Illustrator which I don’t normally touch for, like, ever. Try squinting a bit and see if you notice anything..?
LOL good night. 😀

A bit of fanart featuring Morpheus from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series of graphic novels. Mostly, I wanted to test out how exactly I’d draw his robes, so yeah. LOL and yeah, i have a problem with proportions when I’m not careful. ;w; Anyway, I’m particularly happy with his hair in this one, so yeah, :p
