Neverwhere's Door and Richard Mayhew a-sleepin' in the hay...
i loved the part in the novel where they get hammered from
a few sips of Islington's wine and just crash.

after silliness and dancing, of course. :B

richard, door (c) neil gaiman

ps. i like song titles as my own deviation titles, don't i?
pps. this is actually a HUUUUGE drawing, but i could only scan a part of it. :C

Can I just say that I look at this drawing from time to time and get this big ole grin on my face? Because I do. I'm continuously reading this novel, and I just re-read this part again--love it. And I love this drawing. It captures so much.

Oh god damn this is AMAZING and wow the way you drew Richard is pretty darn close to what I had in my head. Door is perfect! Would love to see a colored version!
supernova8041 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010
Oh my goodness, thankyouthankyouthankyou! :D
Neverwhere is probably my favorite book thus far, and I've never really found good fanart. They look awesome. Poor Richard is so disheveled...

This is beautiful. I love this scene as well. I knew exactly who they were and which part of the book this was just looking at the thumbnail. Great job!
MandaOwl Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2010
Wow, that's great. Neverwhere is one of my favorite books.
Purple-Converse Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2010
Love, love, love this drawing. C: This was definitely one of my favorite scenes in the book, too. Is it just me, or did you kind of want them to get together? xD

You draw them exactly how I imagine them, by the way! (:

Goddammit, ANOTHER fave! How do you do this?
lemonofthetent Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
That was, hands down, my favourite part of the book. :D
I was pretty annoyed that they didn't get together properly in the end - I spent the whole book waiting for it! Still an awesome ending, though - I guess it left room for interpretation...

Of all the lovely drawings in your gallery, this is my favourite :)

It's sad how little fanart this sweet pairing gets (and I love how Richard looks a little scruffy, lol).
