The Neverhood Movie by LuigiL The Neverhood Movie by LuigiL
For those who don't know "The Neverhood" was a game for the PC in 1996. It was a really fun game!

anyway so Doug TenNapel is the mind behind the game. There was some talk a while back that the game was going to be made into a film, but so far I haven't heard any more news.

HOWEVER!! I found a link over at the Neverhood forums [link]
with some concept art for, what looks like, the Neverhood film!

[link]

anyway these are based on those designs.

The left side is the game design of Klaymen (the main character and a fwasheep, a side character not that important really)

The right side is my rendition of the concept art!

hope you like it!

i'd rather think of that as their ancestor's story

oh my gosh. This game was so much fun. I remember playing it for hours on end, and all I remember was how he said "The Neverhood" at the beginning.

And that it was fun and that I played it for hours on end... but I already said that.

I love the dog thing's expression.

I love the game! Managed to get a downloadable copy for a fiver!

Anyways, I kinda like the new design, yes he looks odd, but as long as he has the charm, I'm happy.

Oh wow... I love this. I totally adore it. I just love how you draw Klaymen (both versions!) and how this contrasts them.
Neverhood is the best game ever yes 8] and I can't wait for the movie. I can't believe how much fan art just the concept art has gotten already! Neverhood fans are so dedicated, that's why I'll always be one :heart:

It's great to hear that the film is still being worked on, I was starting to get worried they'd given up on it.

Oh God, what are the odds that I make a picture of Klaymen and post him, then you do the same not twelve hours later? XD

I've never seen anyone draw a picture of him (I haven't really looked him up on here yet), so this is a really funny coincidence to me XD
I love The Neverhood, it was an awesome game, and this is an awesome rendition of the character C:

Wow. WOW. I saw this and then checked your gallery and your style is WONDERFUL.

And here, I love how well you emphasised the old/new similarities. It's so much less jarring and... hey, the new guy seems more acceptable because of it!

Glad you got something good out of the forum. 8B
