Three Doors: Not Coming Down.. by The-Nutkase Three Doors: Not Coming Down.. by The-Nutkase
The other day I bought the book "The Golden Door" by Emily Rodda, and i'm really liking it so far. Took a while before it really grabbed my interest, inside Weld was a bit boring for me.

I felt like drawing the scene where Rye was chased by a bloodhog into a tree, and couldn't make himself come down, even after the beast was killed. It amused me so. :B Also made him into a wolf because I suck at drawing people.
And I can't remember if Rye's eye colour was mentioned.. i'm assuming blue for now. At least I remember he had red hair. xD

At first I didn't like Rye's character, but he's growing on me. I guess I was just comparing him to Lief from Deltora Quest, although I think Rye is a bit more short-tempered and even a bit under confident, as he seems to rely on his brothers a bit too much.

Speaking of Deltora Quest, I see some familiar references in this book... I guess Rodda just couldn't leave the story as it was. ;D

I don't think I can wait for the release of the next book. :C

The Golden Door and Rye belong to Emily Rodda.
Wolf version of the character was created by me. (And will probably need a re-design before being drawn again. xD)

On a completely unrelated note, i'm open for commissions! Check out my journal for more info: [link]

Well, at least Rye isn't always day dreaming like Leaf was. Seriously it was like; Hey, look at that, Jazmine is being attacked by the golden warrior, maybe I should go help... HEY LOOK, A BUTTERFLY!!!

Another Three Doors reader? Awesome! Have you read the other 2 books? c:

I've read all three books multiple times, and i'm pretty sure they never mention Rye's eye colour. So I used my artistic freedom there. cx

Emily Rodda is my absolute favourite author. :love:
If you like The Three Doors, then you should also check out Deltora Quest and Rowan of Rin. They all have a similar structure and concept. :heart:

cool, i saw some of the Deltora Quest on TV when they made it a show but i thought it was kind of strange in anime, but if they made The Three Doors a movie series i might watch them coz i REALLY like the books! XD XP ;P

The Deltora Quest show isn't as good as the books, trust me. xD It's average in comparison.

I agree! I wish the studio that produced the Harry Potter films took on The Three Doors. My life would be complete then~ xD
