Morla, the old one by Der-Reiko Morla, the old one by Der-Reiko
My last painting of 2016.

Of course inspired by Michael Ende's the Neverending Story - a Book that always excited me with both its colorful characters and painterly worlds.
Have you read the book or watched the movie? If yes, what are the parts that stuck with you most? Which Characters did you love or hate? What, after probably many years, do you still remember?

I'm planning to paint many more pieces from the world of Fantastica (Yggramul, Perelin and Falkor are probably next) and i would really appreciate your input :)

Thank you and have a happy and creative new year!

Fuchur is auf jeden Fall mein Liebling... und Graógramán.
Was ich mit am faszinierendsten fand, war dieser Schreiber. Ich weiß den Namen nicht mehr, aber ich glaube, da gab es eine Szene, wo die kindliche Kaiserin zu ihm hochklettern wollte und auf durch eine Leiter aus Worten mit ihm geredet hat... ich sollte das Buch nocheinmal lesen, das habe ich letztes Mal in der dritten oder vierten Klasse, wo ich es ungefähr so verschlungen habe wie Bastian *.*

Danke für den input Whisperofstars, Fuchur kommt auf jeden Fall und den alten vom wandernden Berge hatte ich so noch gar nicht auf dem Schirm. Ich danke dir :)

I watched that movie so many times with my mom we melted the VHS tape. And I'd say my favorite parts were of how Bastien was just chilling and reading this great story.

It might seem strange, but Yggramul was one of most fascinating concepts to me in the book. I liked also the city of artists (I don't remember the name though) and Grograman.

The attention to detail in this and the atmosphere it gives is so amazing. Your other pieces that I've seen are also incredibly well done. This is the sort of thing that I love to see on DA.

One of my favorite movies growing up.  The Rockbiter and the Racing Snail stuck with me for years.  I loved how a simple book could transport you places, and I am sure it fueled some of my passion in reading.

Actually I forgot my working computer at work, and i got a ps4 game for xmas so i didn't bother surfing the net or working the holiday. Been sitting on the sofa every night after my kids bedtime playing. Antisocial, but extremely addicting game! haha

Nothing is better than allowing yourself to be anti social for a while. Can be a real treat :3 Which game did you play?

I'm willing to paint Yggramul next, but I think this needs a lot of preparation^^  I just imagined Gmork as a wolf (which is not the most interesting subject to me), but which image did you have in mind?

Good, Gmork is the condensation of Evil, for me will be that a dark cloud with teeths, about Yggramul you have all reason is a character more complex and enigmatic of the book, you needed full inspitration for make it. (I think I'll be watching you to see future pieces, by the way you have a great portfolio.)

Remarkable job on the artwork! How long did you spend on this?

I seriously don't know. Usually, my process starts really quick, then I notice that something isn't quite working and the painting just lays around for a month and annoys the shit out of me before I touch it again. Sometimes, I just open the painting and work on different stuff- and it just stares at me, blankly and untouched.

I think I spent quite some time on it, but it's by far not the longest and most exhausting run I had so far. :D But i don't have a number for you, sorry :/
