This is this week's Sandman TWART, without colours and before I fixed the values in photoshop.
I really enjoy drawing Spider-Man, but I *love* drawing Sandman. He's big and he's blunt and he looks like he's falling apart. And the stripes are a deceptively simple design element which help define his physique and make him pop. After years of being ambivalent about Steve Ditko, I'm coming round to the idea that he is probably a genius.
And this is the drawing I did to warm up for the Flint Marko piece. I botched the gun, unfortunately, but I enjoyed drawing this austere, 1930s version of Morpheus, a contrast to the be-robed, Robert Smith-esque version of the nineties.
