Neverwhere - Mr Croup and Mr Vandemar by Fuelreaver Neverwhere - Mr Croup and Mr Vandemar by Fuelreaver

I recently delved into the various works of Neil Gaiman, First with 'The Sandman', and I'm now half way through his 'Neverwhere'.

While reading this Novel I felt the overwhelming urge to draw how i envisioned many of the characters, particularly these two gentlemen. :P

If i get the time ill hopefully draw up some of the other characters too. :)

What an excellent illustration of these vile characters! I'm looking forward to seeing how you envisioned Hunter, Door and several other characters from this book. Congrats on the DD!

Neil Gaiman is basically the best. Great job with these guys! They look absolutely miserable!

Yes!  My favorite Neil Gaimen book!  As soon as I saw the thumbnail, I knew it was either Mr. Pin and Mr. Tulip or Croup and Vandemar.  This is actually a lot closer to how I envision them than I've seen in either the TV mini-series or the comic book.  Ugh, why was Anaesthesia blue?  Anyway, this is great!

I recently read the book, without seeing any other interpretations, (Although i had listened to the start of the audio series, could not unheard Anthony Head as Mr Croup! XD ) So yeah there were pretty much just my fresh interpretations, of how i envisioned them while reading. 

I have since seen a few images from the graphic novel, and gotta say don't really like a lot of the interpretations of characters in that book...

Anyway thanks very much for stopping by and commenting! :)
