A better place by HiOutsider-Studio A better place by HiOutsider-Studio
Death is a fictional character from the DC comic book series, The Sandman (19891996). The character first appeared in The Sandman vol. 2, #8 (August 1989), and was created by Neil Gaiman and Mike Dringenberg.

In the stories, Death is both the end of life and a psychopomp. Like most anthropomorphic personifications of death, Death meets with the recently deceased and guides them into their new existence. However, unlike most personifications of death, she also visits people as they are born, according to Destruction in the Sandman Special. Evidently, only she seems to remember these encounters. In the special issue, it is also revealed that Death was known in Ancient Greece as Teleute.

Particular commission :)

Augh.
...I know this sounds silly, but this picture actually has brought tears to my eyes. Really, really powerful. (Makes me think of my own kitty.) So... thank you for doing this. It's a fairly meaningful piece to me now.

Also... nice touch with the butterfly, as in many cultures, they're a symbol for the soul/dead people.
