Death of the Endless by SebastianvonBuchwald Death of the Endless by SebastianvonBuchwald
It started with ripped jeans.

That's what I set out to draw. But I've also wanted to draw Gaiman's Death for quite a while so I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I really liked her first appearance where Morpheus mentions the sound of wings whenever she "took" somebody and that's what I tried to work into this piece.

Done entirely in Photoshop.

She is an awesome character, and you captured her well.

Thanks! It's a bit old so I think I could do better. Maybe I'll take a shot at her again soon, she is indeed an awesome character. :)

Thanks, man. Played quite a bit with adjustment layers to get it looking like I wanted.

Her face, expression and depth, looks gorgeous. Liking her tattered pants and the fact that she's so detailed with a minimal background. She pops off the bench well.

wowsers. This is beautiful work. She has such a cute look on her face. Very nice work on the jeans - very realistic looking rips. loving the white silhouette bench and the dark cloud of birds against that simple background. Again, simply beautiful.

Thank you for the kind comments. It's funny how this originally started out and what it ended as. At one point I had a tree in there somewhere. But yeah, I'm glad with the final results. :)

This is so lovely. I love the contrast between the simplicity of the bench and the complexity of Death herself. :)

Thank you. At one point, her skin was going to be solid white too but the whole piece looked so much better after I shaded her in. I love it when it's the piece itself and not me who dictates what works best.

very cool and solid ^^ sometimes it can be hard figuring out the the outline of an object should be for some people, but youve done this very clean and well if I may say ^^

Thanks! And yeah, getting the figure right is usually the hardest part.

Holy heck. Those are fantastic ripped jeans - and the way you faded them into monochrome black is great. I love how she's the only thing really shaded.

:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Thanks. Solid reference helped a lot when it was time to work on those jeans. And I almost left her skin solid white but it looked so much better after I tried to shade it that I couldn't go back. Also, the hands looked like a blob without shadows. :D
