The Endless by BrandonPalas The Endless by BrandonPalas
The Endless from Sandman. Colored version of .

This is probably the most ambitious coloring I've done in years, and I've lost a lot of whatever coloring skill I used to have. Still, it came out better than I was afraid it might. There are a lot of little things I'm tempted to keep tweaking forever, but it's probably more useful to just cut it off and try to do better on the next one.

The fish/balloon's expression is hilarious.

Thanks! The fish/balloon is the Borghal Rantipole, by the way!

Both the inks and colouring are superb! I love Delerium's fishy balloon so much. Neil Gaiman would love it I'm sure!

Haha I love Deliriums fish going 'DO NOT WANT' being so close to Dream. :lol: Really great piece! I love how you captured all of their personalities in their posing. Shame the prodigal son isn't in the shot.

If he wanted to be in my picture, he shouldn't have been so prodigal. :)

Thanks very much! Like the gloves in the other picture, the fish (the Borghal Rantipole!) is one of my favorite parts of this one. You seem to have an eye for that stuff. :)

Great Work, I love it. I'm a huge fan of the ENDLESS, you are just missing one guy from the group...Distruction. I love this pic, Thanks for drawing it. I just cant keep from looking at it, both the color and black and white.

Yeah, I left Destruction out, pretty much because I didn't feel like I knew him. But thanks very much! "I just can't keep from looking at it" is the sort of thing I love to hear!

I'm not sure how I missed commenting on this. Haven't read the books, but you've evoked the ideal version of the comic that years of you-have-to-read-sandman-it's-amazing have painted in my head.

Much as I love this, I have to ask. Where's Destruction?

When I was planning it out, I went back and forth on whether I should include him. He was absent for most of the book, and he didn't leave a very clear visual impression on me. I know he's totally one of the endless, but he doesn't FEEL like one of them to me. I didn't feel enough of a connection to the character to know what to do with him, so I decided the picture would be better without him.

But everyone keeps asking me, so I probably should've just put him in!

Thanks for commenting. :)
