The original movie adaptation of "The Neverending Story" (1983) book is basicaly the reason why today i do fantasy landscapes. The image of the Ivory Tower in that first movie changed my imagination forever and since then i knew what i wanted to do was create imaginary landscapes.
Since i was a kid i must have read the original Michael Ende novel more than twenty times and iÂ´ve always wanted to create my own comics version covering the entire book as the first movie only adapted the first quarter of the story and the subsequent movies totaly destroyed what was left from this incredible imaginative tale.
So, now iÂ´m planning to do the comics adaptation of the novel just for my own pleasure and this image is the first illustration i created to see how my style of pics could fit into what i want to do. ItÂ´s a work in progress and i also have some sketches i did, but for now here it is.
If you never read the original book, and you like fantasy, what are you waiting for ? ;)
