I´ve been wanting to adapt the original novel “The Neverending Story” by Michael Ende for years now, but somehow i never got around it. But things are starting to take shape and so this is my concept design for the characters of the Racing Snail and its rider that appear at the begining of the book.
You might remember the original 1984 movie and subsequent awful sequels. The original movie has tons of atmosphere and tries to follow the best parts of the first half of the novel with some sucess and lots of imagination, but the subsequent american sequels were atrocious and totaly destroyed the second half of the novel so i´ve been wanting forever to adapt it into a graphic novel so people who haven´t read the book can see what the real story was and if possible totaly forget about the awful movie sequels.
I´ve done more sketches and designs and as soon as i get the time i´ll be working on the graphic novel for The Neverending Story.
More details about all this on my professional illustration website as soon as i can post them. 😉

Estou para adaptar o livro A História Interminável – Michael Ende, há anos, desde que surgiram as horrorosas sequelas para o filme original de 1984. Muita gente não conhece o livro hoje em dia e é pena pois é das melhores historias de fantasia de sempre e que rivaliza perfeitamente com o trabalho de Tolkien ou o de Ursula K Leguin com o Feiticeiro de Terramar.
Este é um dos primeiros esboços para o meu projecto de BD. Já tenho muitos mais, mas irei colocando por aqui á medida que a minha adaptação em graphic novel for evoluindo, assim que eu tenha tempo para me dedicar ao projecto mais a sério .
