Although I have seen The NeverEnding Story movie many times (who hasn't?), I had never until very recently read the book on which it was based. I had mixed feelings on it overall (see my review here), but there were some great characters. Yesterday I did some drawings of a handful of them:
Starting at the top left, clockwise: Bastian and Bastian (I know it's confusing, it kind of is in the book too), Falkor, Gmork, Artax (Artaaaax! *sniff*), Atreyu, the Childlike Empress, Xayide. I'm not terribly satisfied with Falkor or Xayide, and I don't like how Atreyu looks kind of like a girl, but I like the others all right.
If you haven't read it, you should! You could probably just stop at the halfway point and be just fine, but still, it's a nice little fantasy story. (And, contrary to reputation and title, it does eventually end.)
