Kristina Carroll - Neverending Story Love

Last night I heard some music coming from the living room that I recognized but couldn't quite place. When I asked Scott, he said he was watching the Neverending Story. Now most children of the 80's that grew up with this movie have fond memories just like me, but when I got older I also discovered the original novel- which I've read about 5 times and is my favorite book. Last night reminded me of how much I've always wanted to do art for this book. I've done a couple pieces throughout my education, but was never satisfied. (doing art for something so personally important is always the hardest) But today I decided to sit down and do a little character design.

The story has some distinctly eastern flavors in descriptions and philosophy, so I thought I would start by adding some of those to my version of the Golden Eyed Commander of Wishes. (aka- the Childlike Empress) I wanted to give a hint of story elements in her crown (including Falkor) and hid Auryn in her costume. She even has a heart in there.


  1. Wow! This is amazing, Kristina! And I love that movie too!! Now I wanna go watch it! :)

  2. That is also one of my favorite books! And what a beautiful Childlike Empress.

  3. Love it - that movie was one of my favorites too - I'll have to check out the book!
