Neverhood-Betrayal by AMX-269 Neverhood-Betrayal by AMX-269
"Did Klogg have some kind of plan? Did he make you do this?"

"Hoborg, please. Nobody tells me what to do anymore."

...

"Kleo...why?"


After reading the latest pages of ~Pyreo's Neverhood comic "Divine Image," this picture of my Neverhood OC, Kala, came to me.

In my Neverhood fic "Useless," Kala befriends ~Pyreo's OC, Kleo. Now, Kala treasures each of her friendships very dearly, and she cannot take betrayal very easily. So, I'm guessing the knowledge that (SPOILER ALERT!) one of your best friends has become evil and is siding with the person you hate most (e.g. Klogg) could be pretty devastating.

I'll say one more thing about this pic: while I think I'm getting better at digital art, sometimes there's just no substitute for good old paper and colored pencils.

I love how well you do the simple Neverhood style. Just looking at her posture and those tiny tears makes my heart ache too. Will there ever be more on Kala? Or is the epic over?

Well, my story "Counting Stars" is sort of a closing to Kala's character arc, so to speak. If I get inspired to draw her again, there will probably be more art of Kala in the future. I do like drawing her. :)

Thanks for commenting!

I look forward to any work done with Kala. She's very interesting.
Can't help but wonder how she fits into the lore. Her colors suggest Hoborg made her...but I can't remember if you mention how she came to be...

Well, most of my Neverhood pieces involve Kala in some way, so you can get most of her history from them. Her actual profile was sort of a joint effort; it was initially written by my online buddy PorcupinePen (she used to be on dA, but not anymore). She liked Kala too, and decided to give her a backstory, and I just ran with it from there. But yeah, the general backstory of Kala is Hoborg created her first, before Klogg, but it's not really acknowledged because Kala doesn't like all the attention it brings.

(If below isn't comprehensible, it's because I had to use bigger words than I'm used to. Your picture deserves it.)

This seems so emotional to me. The contrast between spacious, generous and smooth lines of the Hood and a small, cramped and rejecting figure of Kala. Just looking at her evokes the feeling of choking on tears. And it's self-explanatory too, with that picture on the wall. I knew what was up the moment I saw it in my watchbox.
A big piece wrapped in an economical rendition. Every part of the story is present in a symbol. I love pictures that tell tales...
