Neil Gaiman - Fangirlishness by violentsound Neil Gaiman - Fangirlishness by violentsound
I vowed once that if I ever got to meet Neil Gaiman, I'd make him something nice because he hasn't sued me, and has in fact pimped my stupid comic a few times now. So, in a mad rush, I drew a picture. The scan isn't the best, actually, but I think you get the idea.

Pens. Lots of goddamn pens.

*points* I see Vandemar and Croup! Everybody ru-... oh. That's not going to do much good, is it?...Well.

You certainly have skills, my friend.

Bad ass! XD I love this! Your art is amazing!

That is amazing. I get Morpheus, but I'm a tad lost on placing the other two characters. Are the two creepy smily guys from Neverwhere? Not sure where the last character is from......

Haha, I need to find more of his works, I just barely read "Good Omens" and have yet to scratch the surface of all his works.

Nicely done. Not familiar with all the character references though.

F***k this is soo much more awesome then the pic i made for him when i went to a book signing...oh well mine was a shitty mirrormask doodle(this was mostly due to the pen dying in the middle of his lecture dammit!!) when i was waiting in line.

I typed in "Neverwhere" and this is all that came up. Disappointing for lack of quantity but quite satisfying in quality.

I know this was published years ago, before I even knew who the hell Neil Gaiman was (my life sucked then), but this... is wonderful. You've captured him so fantastically and so accurately.. I love it.

Nice, very fluid.
I've been reading a lot of Neil Gaiman lately >.<

There are not words enough for how much I love this.

Neil Gaiman is sexy. Oh so sexy.
And you've captured it. XD I have yet to read anything by him besides Coraline, which is amazing. I plan to though.... :3
adrwolfie Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
Just in case, I'm thinking this is it but...those two, the ones with the freaky teeth, are Croup and Vandemar, correct? (someone above said they were but they weren't certain, either. xD)
violentsound Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2009
Yup, that's them.

Nice work! ...Neil Gaiman is the only author I can think of who has fan-girls in the same way people like Brad Pitt have fan-girls. LOL Only more intelligent. :)

Don't know why but Neil kind of reminds me, in this picture, of Schmendrick from the Last Unicorn
isopwntrey Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2007
that looks really good..
neil gaiman is one of my favorite authors..
CrumpetsontheRun Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2007
Yay! It's wonderful to see such a great rendering of one of my litterary heroes. I love how you've surrounded him with his most iconic characters as well. Croup, Vandermar, Dream, Basset and Anansi. (Hopes she got it all right and doesnt sound like a complete dolt)

Lovely. I don't understand what the apple stands for. You should have put a lime in there instead. XD
violentsound Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2007
It's for "Snow, Glass Apples."
Dragon-Of-Eternal Featured By Owner May 31, 2007
The swirls and simple black/white color choice make this peice very eyecatching and fun. ^_^

Neil Gaiman is the man.

I had the chance to meet him once, but I didn't know who he was then. LOL Man, I did felt stupid when I knew I had actually been inches away from one of the most briliant contemporary writers.

Great hommage. ;)
Idesknife Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2007
Oooh nice - I love Neil Gaiman :D
mollymental Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007
Oooh! I like this. I like this a lot. It's really neat in simple black and white, and the strange curly drawing style is real wicked. The details are highly enjoyable. And I love the spider for some reason ;)

I like this one so much I'm faving it. Yup :)

That is so great, the swirls and the sleek and looming figures in your style totally compliment Gaiman's writing style and hte imagery he creates, as well as some of the artist styles in the Sandman. Wonderful composition and choice of characters too... Heehee. :heart:
violentsound Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2006
Thank you!
Spoonfayse Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Whopeople wot? :confused:
I've only read Sandman and Coraline, latter of them signed by Neil himself.
violentsound Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2006
Then you have much to read!
Spoonfayse Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
VERY much. :dead:

I want to marry him. I seriously do.
senoritafish Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2006
I'm just rereading American Gods, so of course I had to do a search on Neil. I love this, especially his eyes and the little curlies in his hair.:love:
amytaluuri Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2006
Neil Gaiman is obviously so cool.

Love your art style.
Fetta Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2006


That's pretty awesome. You're so lucky, it'd be a dream to get to meet Neil Gaiman.

Yeah, and Nice Hair's fucking fantastic.

Nice work. :D
clannoire Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2005
Heheh, I managed to meet him when he was in Singapore promoting Mirrormask the other day. And YES, he's as charming as we thought. =)

I'm also a big fan of 'Nice Hair', by the way. ;)
ErykaOG Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2005
Wicked. Very wicked. ...Sorry, but that's all I can think of right now...School has sucked all my creativity from me, I can't think right now. ^^;

Captain-Fabulous Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2005
i'm blown away by how well you captured his likeness in this. i guess i shouldn't be surprised since you've been drawing caricatures of him for lord knows how long. but still, it's your style, but realistic, but not... it's just really great. and he looks so pleasant.

other things that i really like are those freaky teeth, morpheus, and the little bit of boob.

although, his hand looks a bit weird.
violentsound Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2005
That fucking hand. *laughs* That was a "oh SHIT I already inked it" moment.
Captain-Fabulous Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2005
i hate those moments. at least you didn't try to redraw it in ink on top of it... without pencils. that's what i often do and the result is nothing but trouble.
