Sandy Man by LittleLorel Sandy Man by LittleLorel
Made with deviantART muro

Hi Everyone, My name is Sandy. Well... what should you know about me? Ohh, ohh, I am Sandy. Well actually Sandy Man, but you can just call me Sandy, because you look realy lovely! my dad is the Sandman, I am sure you've heard of him before. I am the same age as the civilisation, but actually my dad didn't let me out of Dreamworld, until my uncle, the Boogey Man convinced him, that I am old enough, to meet people outside my family. But he probably also wanted someone to be there for Twyla, my cousin (his daughter), what I sorta also can understand, as although she is a wonderful creature, she's juuust a little bit too shy. But I love her no matter what! She is such a big help for us, to catch the bad dreams we accidentally bring to some of the normies, and occasionally monsters, too and still be so underestimated. Poor girl...

Hmm, about my style you say? Silk, satin, lace and ribbon EVERYWHERE, they are delicate, smooth and full of fantasy like the dreams that I bring. As for my favourit color: the color of sand in all of it's shades. It is just wonderful, isn't it?!

Ohh yeah, please let me introduce you my companion: Sand. He is not just your everyday sand, he has a soul you know, and an own will of course, which sometimes also gets me in trouble. If he is in the mood, he tends to leak out from my purse - which is his usual place to stay and rest during the day - if he had enough sleep and feels, that he doesn't get enough attention from me. That's usualy the time, when trouble happens, as normies and monsters react the same way, when they get in touch with him in a time they not normally intend to sleep. They will start daydreamin. But not the usual way, you'd think it goes. Oh noooo... my lil fellow displays their thoughts. You can see them like a movie. Sometimes it is pretty awkward. And the worst, that in most of the cases he plays it with me, because I was the one, who did not payed him enough attention. So I have to take a really good care of him if I wanna avoid these scenes.

But other than that he is a little cutie-pie! He is a metamorph creature who is really sensitive for others moods, and tend to change forms according to that. That's so awesome, don't you think?

Lets see, what else?? Hmm, I like marshmellows and hot chocolate. I hate, when someone does not take their dreams seriously. They don't understand how important that is! Aaand I have allergy for dust... strange, isn't it?
I am a creative monster. Love arts sessions. But I dont like history lessons, I already have history behind me, I don't need lessons from that. Name any day of any year and I will tell you what happened there... in any part of the world you'd like. So: BOOORIIIING.

I think so much about me for today. So cheers for everyone, who took the time to get to know me a little bit better!

Have a lovely day mates!

With heaps of LOVE,

Sandy

Well what can I say, that is my entry for the Monster High Contest. I don't think it turned out that bad, and it was a kinda good practice for me on digital art as well, so thanks for the opportunity. But I also have to tell, that it was VERY challenging to do that. The combination of Muro and my computer equals: loads of pain. But I managed to finish in time, so I'm grateful, and I think that is what matters.

Comments and (constructive) critiques are welcome!

Cheers
