I actually had a dream about this about a week before my surgery. I dreamt I was designing a tattoo based off of "The Neverending Story" for a client and after I woke up, the image of what I had been working on was so burned into my mind, I instantly grabbed the computer and started pulling up reference images haha! I've enjoyed working on this in between commissions.
Artax, Atreyu, Moonchild, Bastian, and Falcor all make their appearance in this which I'm crazy proud of haha! The panels that contain Artax, Atreyu, and Falcor are all about 2.5" x 2" so I had to work in various sized areas which definitely was a fun challenge! Went for my own flair in a nouveau-esque style.
The two quotes are both from the end of the movie, "Bastian, call my name!" and "He's suffered with you." A moment that I always cry my eyes out on haha! Enjoy!
Medium: Graphite, Mechanical Pencil, Micropen, White Gel Pen Size: 11" x 14" This piece is SOLD.

Great...i love this Movie,the more wonferfull fantasy movie/book and story of all time!!!i cry for patetic 2' & 3' movies,that insulte the original and prey for the remake (2014?) that make honor to Wolfankg Petersen movie!!!
Oh it's quite alright! It was an arthroscopic procedure to nail a chunk of my knee cap back in place and removed the crushed bits from an accident I had almost 12 years ago. I'm glad it took because if it hadn't, I'd be back in for knee replacement and at 22 I'm not too keen on that so yes, good news was fantastic! XDDD
the movie is amazing...especially considering the majority of fantasy movies in the 80s. Have you read the book? Soooo good....not exactly the same but the movie is amazingly close to the first half of the book.
Haha I know! I wore out the tape as a kid lol. No, I have yet to even find a hard copy! D: I've heard that it's quite different (like Artax not coming back?) so I've been trying to find one but I'll probably have to look on the internet since my luck in finding one here has been crappy lol.
I think the book has been rereleased and can be bought new at bookstores but I can't say for sure because I can't remember when I got my copy though I know it was a few years ago. It is different and there's more to the story beyond what the movie shows. There's a whole other half of the book after that. Bastian gets his own adventure basically. It's a great story, I love it. The movie is quite true to the story except for the oracle and there is a monster that they leave out...ok it's not as true as I remember I guess but both are so great I hardly care.
I would check abebooks.com or russelbooks.com but only because I know they take paypal and at the moment I don't have a credit card. I bet it can be found on Amazon though. Really, really good book.
wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww i loved that movie you made me happy it brings back lots of memories this is awesome work great skills sooooooo cool and sooooooooooo beautiful and soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo detailed!!! dont think i cant see those tiny things and charactars!!! haha ur really talented
Thanks! Ooohhh me too; I felt the same way about them! I think part of that was how omnipotent they were but at the same time they helped Atreyu. It was like they had that power to either help or totally destroy.
