fanart, Weighing of the Heart (Sandman)

Fandom: Sandman
Characters/Pairings: Morpheus, Matthew
Media used: pencil drawing, inked with fine liner pens, acrylic paint
Rating/warnings: G, none
Notes/comments: This was my Yuletart gift for Rasetsunyo. Besides Morpheus and Matthew, Rasetsunyo mentioned in the requests (for another, non-Sandman fandom) the Egyptian pantheon, and also liking crossovers. This isn't really a crossover with the other fandom, but I thought it would still work to mix Morpheus into in one of the classic scenes of the Egyptian afterlife, i.e. the Weighing of the Heart. So there's Anubis weighing the heart against the feather of truth, Thoth keeping the records, and Ammit (the crocodile/lion/hippo mix demon) waiting to eat the unworthy hearts. I decided to show the waiting soul as Ba with a bird body and human head. I'm not sure why Morpheus is there, but I figured that the Egyptians connected their afterlife underworld to the night and to the journey of the sun might be good enough for this Endless to show up there.

Somehow Morpheus and Matthew ended up in the Egyptian afterlife. Image and high resolution details are behind the cut. )

fanart (kinda), Matthew sketch

I'm not a fiction writer, so obviously I'm not doing any NaNoWriMo things like many of my f-list, but I've decided to set myself the goal to update at least once every day during November. Also, that if I can't come up with any interesting stuff to post, I'll just inflict a random doodle on the internet at large. That has the added advantage of motivating me to draw semi-regularly, something which I unfortunately tend to fail at.

Fandom: DCU (Sandman)
Characters/Pairings: Matthew the raven
Media used: pencil drawing
Rating/warnings: G, none
Notes/comments: Even though I thought of Matthew while drawing this, it could be just as well some random raven -- I mean, I didn't include anything Dreaming specific. Unfortunately it also isn't a very good sketch: something about the proportions isn't right between the body and the head, I think, but it is the first time I've tried drawing a raven that I recall, so taking that into account it did turn out *that* bad. I also tried to figure out flying ones, so there are a couple smaller odd birds that may or may not look like ravens too. Anyway, I have very little shame when it comes to posting slightly misshapen results. (No drawer-art here... *g*)
