Death plays hard to get. by batlesbo Death plays hard to get. by batlesbo
Yes, that's me =D I think this is the only way I could ever commit suicide.

And yes, I do have a gun. And no, I can't tie a tie.

...Or was it the other way round? ;D

Short comic strip with Death, who of course doesn't belong to me but to the genius Neil Gaiman. This took me about... an hour I'd say. Getting the idea, penciling it, then inking with normal black markers. I'm not counting the scanning and texting part though!

Oh, oh oh, oh, TIES, it's uh, something to do with Half past a half mast, then one leg over the other, then a sharp twist, then right between the eyes, then through the tunnel, and that totally rhymed when I first heard it...

So basically the larger end is longer I think, then it goes over the smaller end, then you wrap it around, then pull it up behind/between, then pull it through the loop it makes when you wrapped it before, and then you adjust it to proper lengths, I think. I drew it to help myself learn a while ago... And that's just the Half Windsor.

Holy hell you read the Sandman comics O.O

Suicide would be a reasonable price to pay in the DC Universe to meet Death. I might have been a Black Lantern

batlesbo Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Originally from Sandman (which is part of the DC universe), but then everyone fell in love with the character Death and Neil Gaiman had to write stories where she's the main character. (called "Death")

freaking amazing :D hilarious plot. Do you ever learn what team Death plays for? She seemed pretty friendly with Franklin (?) but she knew he was going to die soon...
Reply
:iconbatlesbo:
batlesbo Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
She's not for or against anyone. And yeah, just like when she knew Franklin was going to die.

But there are some exceptions where she actually deals with humans. In "the time of your life" for example, she trades a life for another, for the son of a lesbian couple :)

Just got "The Doll's House" as a surprise present from my mom :D Do you know who the missing brother is? We've met Dream, Death, Destiny, Desire, and Despair, and we've heard of Delirium, so who's the prodigal?
