Mermaid Character Design: Neverending Story’s Childlike Empress

fantasy mermaid art

My submission for May’s Character Design Challenge on Facebook. The brief for this month was to redesign a character from the Neverending Story, so I decided to go for the Childlike Empress. I reimagined her as a mermaid princess, waiting on her deep sea throne for Atreyu to arrive.

My illustration was awarded a special mention that month.
