Neil Gaiman’s Sandman

I used to read graphic novels (Comics), when I was a kid, but never took them terribly seriously, although I did absolutely love “Sin City” and bought it on DVD. So, I found Gary Reef’s Art From the Heart group on ning and joined yesterday. I’ve been a Youtube fan for about a year, so it seemed like a logical progression and lo and behold! there’s an Illustration challenge which ended yesterday with ‘Dream’ as the focus…

You know I don’t really do drawing much, but boy, this character got under my skin and here’s what happened!

So, it’s doodle (pencil); watercolour mood wash; doodle with fineliner; Add Neocolour black to his hair and doodle some more with Sharpies. If you’re interested, here are some links to follow:

It was fun to draw/sketch again. I need to keep practising! =)

NB: Thanks for all your kind wishes re: DH’s health – we have an appointment with his GP tomorrow to discuss the Ultrasound scan and are both very impressed with how quickly our doctor heard back from the hospital. When you really need it, the NHS is unbeatable… xo
