He deserves a movie directed by the coen bros. (sigh)...but that's just taste speaking. Since does Hollywood (a realm of sensational pandering that makes Megan Fox April O'Neil and has 'The Great Gatsby' directed by the guy who spawned 'Moulin Rouge') give two shits about literate content?

The question should also be done by either sam raimie (dark man) or david fincher.

ncely done - it has a very film noir quality to it.... which of course is perfect for the alterego of Wesley Dodds

Why don't people do more fanart of the original Sandman (with the gas mask), instead of the Neil Gaiman one?
Reply
:icondiegotripodi:
DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2010
Because it's more popular? :hmm:

che, leiste las versiones viejas de Sandman? Creo que eran de los años '40. El personaje era nada que ver con el de los '90. Tenía una onda mas The Spirit.

:icondiegotripodi:
DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2008
No, tengo que tratar de conseguir algo de eso. Me encanta The Spirit. Me imaginaba que el Sandman de esa é;poca debería tener un tono más sombrío, pero la verdad no leí nada.

De la serie de los 90s (Sandman Mystery Theater) leí algo y me gustó mucho. Los dibujos de Guy Davis me parecen tremendos. Uno de mi favoritos, lejos ;)

Hablando de The Spirit, viste el trailer de la película? Qué te pareció?

Lamonicana Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2008
Se ve bueno, pero creo que la onda del comic era un poco más en joda que lo que aparenta la pelicula.

:icondiegotripodi:
DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2008
Totalmente de acuerdo... me pareció muy Sin City el trailer. El cómic tenía un sentido del humor que no se ve en esos avances, pero bueno, supongo que habrá que esperar a ver la peli y ver qué tal es...
Reply
:iconlamonicana:
Lamonicana Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2008
Y... si.
A mi me gustaria una peli con esos colores copados que tenía el comic (los que eran a color)
Reply
:icondiegotripodi:
DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2008
Solamente ví un par de dibujos a color en alguna página, pero sí, sería más... adecuado, supongo, si la peli tuviera esa estética. Dicho esto, seguramente voy a ver la peli, por más estética siniestra Sin City-esca que tenga, porque está Miller... aunque 300 me pareció patética (ok, ok, Miller no la dirigió...) :)

:iconlamonicana:
Lamonicana Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2008
Si, la verdad que 300 es bastante chota.

DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2008
no me levanté del cine a la media hora porque dije "está el nombre de Miller!"... el cómic no lo leí pero sinceramente no le tengo fé... este Franco tiene un talento especial para tirarse a menos cuando quiere...

I love the variety of shading styles within this piece, they serve effectively to distinguish the different materials. This piece also has a nice graphic strength to it.

I was hoping it was that Sandman you were doing when I saw the title! AWESOME! I love this more than words can describe. That character is a GREAT fit for your style! AWESOME!

DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2007
Thanks so much, Crawdad! I'd love to get to draw that character, I guess that because of his cool costume (trenchcoat / mask / hat) it's a character that is a great fit for different styles, really... I remember Tony Harris got to draw him in a "Starman" story arc, and it looked fantastic, and then there is the version from the "Sandman Mystery Theater" title, drawn by Guy Davis, which I thought was like the definite version of Sandman! (now I think about it, I believe that in that Starman story, there were a couple of pages by Guy Davis in between the pages done by Harris... that was awesome! :) ). Also, I can kind of imagine your version of that character... since he's got big round "eyes" like your character E, I'm thinking as well in that "BugFace" character from your avatar/icon, and drawn with lots of heavy blacks like in that great 50's monster pin-up you have done, and it'd be a terrific Sandman!
