    Chow 157 :: The ENDLESS

    Chow 157 :: The ENDLESS

    ROUND #157 :: The ENDLESS
    DESCRIPTION

    The Endless

    Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, Despair, Desire and Delirium

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Endless

    The Endless are brothers and sisters created by the British writer Neil Gaiman (with the exception of Destiny – Marv Wolfman and Bernie Wrightson) for the DC/Vertigo Comics series ‘Sandman’ (Dream). Each one is a personification of a natural force and has very distinctive characteristics.

    Destiny: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Destiny_(DC_Comics))

    Death: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_(DC_Comics))

    Dream: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dream_(comics))

    Destruction: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Destruction_(DC_Comics))

    Despair: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Despair_(DC_Comics))

    Desire: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desire_(DC_Comics))

    Delirium: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delirium_(DC_Comics))

    DC/Vertigo: http://www.dccomics.com/vertigo/

    Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to design one of The Endless, or if you are feeling industrious as many as you like, but that is up to you, there is no bonus for producing more than one. Avoid designing them as previously presented in the comic, stick to gender, although bear in mind each one has very individual motifs and sigils (example, Death’s Ankh, or Desire’s Heart) and provide your own interpretation.

    And please follow the submission rules. Thank you.

    Weee! I think I wanna do Delirium....

    When you say avoid doing them as in the comic, is some things that's presented there still allowed to bring in a painting? *cough* fish balloon *cough*

    She is pretty... er... picking things here and there, but can I still mismatch clothes and such? And can I keep the half shaven/half long hair, or is that too much of the comic character? Or do I have to revamp it alltogether?

    If I was gonna do Destiny, I guess brown robes are out as well? Or?

    Thanks for answers.

    Hey Aly,

    The end parenthesis didn't make it as part of the link, so they don't send you where intended.

    Click, and scroll down to "The Endless"

    Sorknes - I guess what we're looking for is not who can paint Death as a Goth the best, or Dream as a spooky lanky Robert Smith lookalike. The characters have very distinguishing elements that can be reinterpreted. If you desperately want to present Delirium, for example as she is in the comic, then that's up to you. But this is a design challenge so exercise those imaginations and see how they could be pushed in a different direction. And a Fish Balloon is fine!

    I always had a crush on Death (!) as she is, so the challenge is going to be a big one for me!

    Ah, I think I get what you're saying

    You guys don't want lets say 20 Deliriums that look the same, and the one with the best painting skill wins, right? So I can keep some elements and then do my own twist/thing with them then. If I got it right. Heh.

    Definitly a fish balloon then

    Oooh.....this looks so purdy. I know very little about the series, so I couldn't possibly be influenced by previous versions. Hope I can squeeze this one in!

    Wow. I SO don't have time for this right now... But.. but how can I possibly skip on a Sandman CHOW!??

    If I can cut on sleep time, I'm going for Despair, the most underrated Endless

    never read the comics. but this sounds fun.

    did a quick sketch of death. i think of the concept of death as very bird-like and strangely elegant. that's why i'm going with a bird-like representation.
    will probably rethink the anhk sword...

    then i thought that perhaps it would be interesting to incorporate the shape of the ankh to her silhouette/design... probably be messing around with that idea.
