I had fun redesigning the NeverEnding Story characters. I tried a more
mature, dark and gritty approach. My main reference was mostly the first
film and the wikipedia page (I never read the book).

Green paint is a reference to Greenskins (Atreyu's race in the book)

You are a true artist!  I've watched all 3 movies and both series!  Atreyu and Artax do make a great team!  An amazing image of a woodland boy and his trusty stallion! Clap

Is amazing!!! *o* 
Yeah, the green skin would have been too much! XD I like the green paint, btw! I do think he would have look a little better with darker skin and maybe black hair, since the Greenskin were based on Native Americans
Other than that, the draw is epic!!! As true fan of TNES since I was a child, I'm love with your art! This one and the others characters! Would be soo epic if an animated TNES movie could come from your arts! *-* Please, do more!!! <3

The only thing I have to say is that I think Atreyu should have a darker sin / more Native American features, for that's what he essentially looks like, but with the green skin in the books.

Other than that, this is AWESOME, as a huge fan of the book, it's  great seeing great art like this! :heart:

Thanks !! Yeah I tried to reference the greenskin feature with the green warpaints ! I felt that real green skin would look a bit too childlish.
