I'm destiny
I'm torn between the light and dark
Where others see their targets
Divine symmetry
Should I kiss the viper's fang
Or herald loud
the death of Man
I'm sinking in the quicksand
of my thought
And I ain't got the power anymore

Don't believe in yourself
Don't deceive with belief
Knowledge comes
with death's release
David Bowie "Quicksand"

Note: this is a vector i created from Chris Bachalo artwork. i scanned artwork from the "King Of Dreams" postcard set and vectored it. see here :

    I like the style of this one, nice vectoring, DREAM.

  7. evasion Oct 30, 2005

    Whoa - this is very well done - I love the unique style of the artwork - it is quite interesting. Thumbs up for a fantastic job!

    DREAM is going into vectorness? :o
    YAY! \(^o^)/

    In my eyes there's nothing really to criticise... I love it XD I'm also an impatient vectorer and seldom vector anything more than stock images (because they're much simpler methinks than a character >_>) But woah. I really like this ;) *clicks on the faves*

    great job my friend. I have considered vectoring that one. well you were quicker than me. mad props for the vector. little white dot on her hair on the right.
    awesome.. get your act together and send me the missing info, cause i wanna tell the whole world about sei-iki. +favorites

    nice job man, i like the simplicity of it ^_^. i agree wiht dern, maybe put some highlight in the hair, that would be cool

    Interesting piece. Lady Death wearing an Egyptian symbol of immortality. XP

  12. omni Oct 31, 2005

    Even more interesting: She's wearing a sexual symbol of immortality. Wait... is there even a difference? Actually, I have no idea whatever who she is.


    What? So I go for classical art over modern. I have my priorities straight, dammit!

    Oh, and DC: Could take a little while to do all that.

    Since I have no idea who this lady death person you speak of is, aside from a random woman in a jacket drinking coffee, I'm just going to comment on the technical side of things.

    I have no idea what the original art looked like, so I quite honestly have no idea how closely or loosely it follows it. Um. That's a problem. I also have no idea about the artist's style. So I can't comment on how well you matched it, complemented it, etc.

    That said, it's a well done vector, whatever the hell that means. With vectors, I always like making things simple, and especially making them monochromatic. You've got a piece that has no chroma whatever, here, which is just fine and dandy by me. Style is next to Pride in my list of good traits to have.

    Um. So, yes.

    I'ts a wonderfull drawing ! Really great job ! ^^ I like the effect black and white !

  14. kucing Oct 31, 2005

    nice black and white combination... looks kinda goth (i just read comic name "goth") hahaha

  15. ZvezdanA Oct 31, 2005

    that`s one of the best vectors i`ve ever seen!
    i love it!

    It seems as if the point has been missed.

    Anyway, great job on the vector, Dream. I looked at the original scan that you posted a link for and I have to say that I really like the scale of your vector more.
    Something I have yet to try with vectors is the mimicking of heat ripples in the air. The coffee cup that is so prominently displayed in your image made me think of it. Thanks for sharing your work.

    Owwh DREAM that`s lovely. I think I really like the style of the artwork also - it looks gothic but not so at the same time .___.;; hahah. Great.

    The black and white go is nice too. You managed to vector out the focal details for sure - thus I think the end result of a simple yet intriguing piece is pretty fantastic. Lurrrve it!

  18. DeeDee Nov 01, 2005

    Wow! Great Vec!
    I LOVE her... actually.. she reminds me A LOT.. of ME :D hahahaha
    This is great!

  19. Regenbogen Nov 01, 2005

    Hello DREAM... Yes, of course I do like this vector... it's perfect... I can only see one little white spot in the white hair... but that's it.... Bjork's "Isobel"... hmmm, well we are not in a discussion of music here... but I like many songs of Bjork... she has an amazing voice, it's very different, so not everyone's taste... I cannot give you any constructive criticism... it simply looks really good! And I add it to my favorites...

  20. calisqo Nov 02, 2005

    wow dream.
    NIce work.
    Very deep.
    The black and white just awesome for the pic.
    It fits well .It always amaze me when people use black and white to define their arts.really neat.
    Overall nice vector, keep it up.

  21. flyindreams Nov 02, 2005

    T___T Now why didn't I get a notification for this? After I moved everyone back to my watchlist... *cries* I didn't get a notification for tareren's latest vector either... T___T *RAWR*

    Anyways... O_O Mad, mad awesome vector dream! This is incredible <333 I like how you smoothed out the lines a bit more from the original scan, and the dark ambiance is incredible. I'm overwhelmed by the stylishness of this vector... and it's an incredible improvement over your first vector too. As so many people have pointed out already... the white dot in her hair is slightly distracting ;) Otherwise, this is beautiful. Keep up the awesome work XD And yah, if you haven't yet, send DC that info lol, 'cause I'm dying to see sei-iki too <333

    Fans of The Sandman series will definitely be impressed by this stunning vector art! Sharp and simple black and white tone contrasts make this work a real winner for fans of the Miss Death! An excellent contribution! :)

  23. Evanrued Nov 03, 2005

    Hmm. It really does look nice. I like it. I have a mask I made that has the same design under the eye lol. Love the lips. And the orig. scan is a nice one. Great job on the vector Dream. ^^ It all seems to even out, and the black and white concept is good too.

  24. zakaro Nov 04, 2005

    wow what a cool vector pic ^^
    it gives me a fell of sin city...
    good job, it's great!
