Neil Gaiman's Death IV by hoschie Neil Gaiman's Death IV by hoschie
Neil Gaiman meets Terry Prachett :-)
I got that idea after reading their novel "good omen". I know that it is not "correct" because the elephants were missing, but I like it this way ;-)

It is another picture from my gorgeous Death shooting I had month ago. This theme is very inspiring to me and I had fun to make it =D But I really like how it came out but it has to be seen in a really big size..

the technique I used is a mixed one between Photography and digital painting.

-

One of my favourite cartoon character is Death from the sandman series from Neil Gaiman.
She is the second oldest member of The Endless family, a group of timeless beings who carry out the inevitable functions in every day human existence.

It was my wish for so long time (80th) to make a Death picture. Thanks to my girlfriend to arrange this shooting.

This is the fourth picture from this series :-)

Awesome idea...
Me and my friends we had an idea of making a group of Neil Gaiman's fans dressed as our favourite characters (nothing interesting)
But the distinction was...well, there wasn't any :/
(And of course we are Terry Pratchett's big fans)
I had to be the Death...and I wanted to had the same cylinder :D
We can't see the four elephants from this perspective so I think it's not a problem...not a big one :)
It doesn't matter ^^

I find it funny that the Eldest of the Endless has the youngest form.

I've read a lot of Terry Prachett's books. I like Thief of Time most. The turtle with the elephants is mentioned in that book as well I think. I like this picture a lot.

So many ways to interpret this picture, what with the fact that the model is sitting atop a giant tortoise whose shell is the face of the planet. Maybe she's Queen of the world XD

I'm not sure why she's sitting ON the Discworld, she'll squash all the tiny little people.
However the elephants support the Discworld, you can't see them if you're looking down. So it's OK!

About inspiration I need to write I LOVE (!) Terry Pratchett's books! Neil Gaiman's I read only "Corlaine" and "Stardust" but I don't know his style very well. But they have a great imagination.
How about your art- I think the shadow under girl is too strong and too far from her. It doesn't look natural, but the oter things are very well done.
Really inspiring comosition but I can't say more because I don't know Gaiman's character (Death).
I think I should read something soon ;)

I'm a fan of both Gaiman and Pratchett. At first, I was worried that another great writer died (Douglas Adams having already died young).

Pratchett's character Susan, Death's granddaughter, is also a great character. She stars in Hogfather.

Anyway, I recognized the picture right away! Great job!

ah, disc world. my senior likes reading terry's stories, but i go like, huh? since i couldn't connect, but i do like his story of a grim reaper in retirement, it had me in stitches while i was waiting for the lab results! i love the sandman's family, they are so unconventional and immortal but at the same time, eerily human in a way, like they echo our humanity :)
