Do you recognize her? :)

It's Death, from the comic series The Sandman by Neil Gaiman. I always loved this character, is one of my favourites from my favourite writer, so I always wanted to do a picture of her. I have my opportunity this year, when the Phoenix Assotiations of Epic Fantasy asked me to do my version of her for an article about Neil Gaiman in their new online free magazine Imaginarios. If you read spanish, you can download it here: [link]

As some of you can recall, the title is taken from the first story in which she appears in the comics ;).

Death is (c) Neil Gaiman & Mike Dringenberg, DC Comics.
