There is now an Earthworm Jim official Facebook page!
Doug TenNapel is posting Earthworm Jim official art and concepts. Not only that though! With the added bonus of his and his peers memories and creative insights behind each image.
There is a concept and official art gallery here on Rocket Worm. We’ve only guessed at some of the reasoning behind stuff, so Doug is providing information into the creative development process behind the games and TV show etc., that fans have never really had the chance to know about before.
It’s pretty interesting to hear about the underlying thoughts and processes that went into all those things. That’s pretty awesome…so get over there if you are on Facebook and join in.
It’s been a long time since I did something like this. It’s been nearly five years since I re-designed Rocket Worm, and it could do with a new lick of paint since it’s Earthworm Jim’s 20th anniversary next year…the current look of the site is really bugging me. I wanted to do this for the longest time and kept talking myself out of it. This isn’t a priority, but I don’t know if I will get another chance to do it if I keep putting it off.
I’m currently working on colouring the graphic novel of Doug TenNapel’s Nnewts. We had to put the web comic on hiatus, and he’s made it into a graphic novel.
At the beginning of this year, we wrapped up a new colour version of his Graphic Novel Tommysaurus Rex, which is coming out later this summer by Scholastic.
Anyhow after a lot of procrastinating, I started sketching it out…I want to get most of the main characters on it. Not sure at this point how it will turn out…so I’m documenting the progress. Yes it is a little insane. I certainly feel insane doing it, but I’ve started now so it’s too late. I’m not as good as Doug at drawing his characters (obviously!) but I have fun drawing them all the same.
These are sketches which will be coloured and painted…before I do that, they will be arranged into a layout. I’m just sketching them out and getting the tones down on them at this point.
Peter Puppy (turning into a monster), Earthworm Jim, a cow, Psy-Crow, Princess What’s Her Name and Evil The Cat. About 10 or more to go.
Enjoying these Doug TenNapel Kickstarter commissions…there are a lot of lucky people out there who are going to get these.
Today Doug posted ink and wash illustrations of Willie Trombone from The Neverhood, Evil The Cat from Earthworm Jim, a Five Iron Frenzy character and a space pioneer.
Hop over there and check them out…Doug TenNapel Kickstarter Comissions: Neverhood, FIF etc.
Doug TenNapel posted another great Earthworm Jim commission from his sketchbook archives Kickstarter today.

Doug TenNapel has posted a few of his Kickstarter commissions over the last couple of months (all sorts of different characters!), so make sure you keep up to date with them on his site…I like to re-post the Earthworm Jim ones!
Here’s a new one he posted today of Princess What’s Her Name looking very chic.
