Atreyu by IzzyMedrano Atreyu by IzzyMedrano
One of the protagonists from The Neverending Story. I did it as a demo for [link]

I made him a little older, and switched it up from the more traditional Native American look. He's more Mezzo-American/ Mayan inspired with a massive blowgun with poison snail darts for taking down the Purple Buffalo his people hunt.

hes FABULOUS!!! i loved the book and u gave me a new look for Atreyu. Maybe because of the movie i always wondered him a mix between a caucasian dressed like a native american and Mowgly.

I really dig the look you gave him. I was never much of a fan of the movie's depiction. I like the details of the belts and the turban-like piece, but specially, his facial features. I wonder what the Neverending Story would be like if animated with todays technology? Maybe you'll work on it in the near future.

Daaamn, this looks pretty damn good. But, in my opinion, the movie Atreyu from 1984 is simple and clear, and that look shouldn't be altered.
