“Foolish boy. Don’t you know anything about Fantasia? It’s the world of human fantasy. Every part, every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries.” - The Neverending Story
After hearing the feedback I got on the portfolio question, I decided to go on and draw some characters from existing stories, so here’s Cairon the centaur from The Neverending Story! He’s definitely not the most recognizable (in the movie he only appears for a couple seconds and as something more elvish), but his design has been one of the ones that I’ve had the most fun playing around with.
I wonder, what’s in a book while it’s closed. Oh, I know it’s full of letters printed on paper, but all the same, something must be happening, because as soon as I open it, there’s a whole story with people I don’t know yet and all kinds of adventures, deeds and battles. And sometimes there are storms at sea, or it takes you to strange cities and countries. All those things are somehow shut in a book. Of course you have to read it to find out. But it’s already there, that’s the funny thing. I just wish I knew how it could be.
