I've been working on concept art for my "Neverending Story" project based off the book written by Michael Ende. I present to you, Dame Eyola!
Towards the end of the book, Bastian has to go through some trials to get his memories back. He ends up at the House of Change and meets Dame Eyola. She is an inviting, round and red-cheeked woman, as healthy-looking as an apple. At first Bastian thinks that she's wearing a dress of bright, flowered material but quickly learns that she IS leaves, flowers and fruits. At one point during their conversation she picks up a watering can and sprinkles herself with water. It all grows out of her as hair grows out of our heads. Dame Eyola is flowering and bearing fruit because she's happy to see Bastian, but if she were to be sad, she'd wither.
