All Men Dream by ArtMagix All Men Dream by ArtMagix
But not equally...

Morpheus, the King Of Dreams.

Recently picked up Sandman by Neil Gaiman, now I'm kinda stoked to do the rest of the characters! and get my hands on the other volumes.

I really love how all the relevant DC characters make cameos in the books too, like how Martian Man-hunter, John Constantine, and Scarecrow are all in volume 1.

Did you use Gaiman himself as a reference for Dream's face here? It sort of resembles him ... which is fitting, whether it was intentional or not!

haha he does look like Neil! Then again I bet they made Morpheus look like the author in the first place :D

Very nice depiction of the character. I love the way the helmet reflects the golden glow of the sand, and the faces of dreaming souls beneath him.

I love Sandman (actually I have yet to read anything by Neil Gaiman that I don't enjoy). I hope to see more of the characters. You've really depicted Morpheus so well. I would love to see your depiction of Death. I've only read two volumes so far but so far she's my favourite...perhaps because she's entirely not what one expects when they think of Death or Thanatos. :D I look forward to more.

Great stuff! I just started reading the series myself. Love what you did with the helmet, kinda modernized it over the super 80's style present in the comics. I always wondered what the tube on the end was for, seeing as how it doesn't lead to anything.

This is BEAUTIFUL, and such a poignant tribute to such an amazing character. His robes are so HAUNTING, that burden that he bears -- and the nod towards his mask and 'sleeping powder' is perfect. Thank you so much for sharing with us!

I think book one is the best, because of the cameos and in the beginning Sam Keith was the artist, his drawing style suited Gamans writing so well. :heart:

And I love your picture! :love: You captured Morpheus so well.

Beautiful! I need vol 1 myself. I got random volumes of Sandman ^^; I think it might have been vol 9 where you see cameos by Superman,Batman,Martian Manhunter and Darkseid. I loved it.

Oh, cool. I hear that you can read them in any particular order, but I personally feel that one has to read them from one to ten in order.

Anyways, hope you enjoy, and I eagerly await Death!

Thank you! I recently started getting back into reading graphic novels. Though I was never a fan of comic books before, but since a friend of mine suggested a bunch of titles including Sandman, and some Batman graphic novels :p

Nice. Yeah, I never was much of a comic fan either, and I've only just recently gotten into manga. The drawing styles of most American comics have never really appealed to me...but maybe it just takes some getting used to. :shrug:

Did they suggest anything besides Sandman that you enjoyed?

I used to read a bit of Manga when I was in high school, but only the Evangelion ones.

My friends highly recommended me Batman: The Black Mirror (which I now read and own), I'm planning on picking up Batman: The Court Of Owls. Some Daredevil graphic novels.

I've also ready a bit of Vertigo's Fable graphic novels before (beautiful art and clever plots), as well as The Eternals written by Neil Gaiman. :)
