NeverEnding Story Redesign // Morla

By Vorace-Art

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).

Morla the wise, less cartoony than the one in the movie.

So much talent. I don't know if I should be completely impressed or jealous xD

probably going to be my favorite one from this series. The shell alone is worth a thousand words. I still have 2 more to look at, but seriously, this is gonna be hard to beat.

I've always tried to imagine what Morla looked like. The book doesn't describe his whole body. What I especially like about your concept here are the holes in his shell. It is a nice detail and fits perfectly. If Morla had sat in the swamp for thousands of years, a shell with holes would make an excellent foundation for a microecosystem. Soil would collect and the holes would allow more room for roots to grow. 

Very nice work!

Oh man! I love your redesigned Neverending Story characters! Really awesome.
I am rereading the book now, as I loved it as a child.
It is a masterpiece, you should read it if you have the time :)
