Dream of a thousand stars by *moyan

In the words of bananaprincess: "This gorgeous piece of fanart for Neil Gaiman's Sandman series is done in pen. An amazing amount of patience and skill went into it. The level of detail, especially in Matthew's feathers, is striking." ( Suggested by bananaprincess and Featured by animator )

Your Gallery is amazing and any one of your deviations is reason enough to fave and watch you :worship:

Love those tiny pupils in his empty eyes. Clearly you have put so much detail into this that if I did it I would just go crazy, well done.

Like your stuff wasn't already amazing enough in my opinion, and then I go and find this. Sandman is only my favorite all time comic, and I basically worship Neil Gaiman. You rock

Gotta love Dream. The penwork here is just so full of character and implication which matches up beautifully the nature of Gaiman's creation.

(And thank you for the Llama, by the way.)

Awesome painting, love the feeling of the ink. By the way, what kind of scanner do you use?

Canon mp150, it's one of those normal print-scan-copy, 3in 1 thing.

Oh, because I use one of those 3in1 thingy, an Epson TX-115 Series. But whenever I scan it looks awful, it even eats some of the lines in my drawings no matter what paper do I use.

I guess you have to process your scan with photoshop. There's this tutorial in my gallery that tells you how i do it. :)

This is the only comic ive actually collected. I love Morpheus soooo much! I looked into him when my art teach told me my doodles (way back in high school) reminded me of the comic.

I love Neil's work, and yours also. Was the rendition difficult at all? The artwork in the graphic novels were so stylized (which I also loved).
