Michael Ende's "The Neverending Story" (Yes, it was a book before it became a movie!) was first published in 1979.

Remember Atreyu and the Auryn?

I haven't read/watched the Neverending story, but this design is very ouroboros-like. It's cool, but I remember there was another shirt that was similar, though only because it was ouroboros-like as well, with the snake twisted into an infinity sign. I don't know if that would be a problem...

Meh. Good luck!

Beautiful design and I absolutely adored the movies as a child. I wish you had submitted this sooner!

This is great! Good color choice. Even if you did not know the movie this design would still work. GMV

I agree, the medallion size would have been best, as well as giving it a little more presence with more color and shading. It just looks far too flat for me (and I love this movie and book so I'm not picking it apart because I don't know the story or anything). It needs something more, and I don't mean in size.

I toyed with that for a while... having it look as if you were wearing the medallion. It just didn't feel right, though, with only the 6 colors to use. I wanted it to look realistic if I did it that way. I went with the sketched look and cut down the color size...but it needed to be bigger for that one to work.

At least, that's what was going through my head. I'll toy with some other versions.. perhaps you will see them in future derby submissions by yours truly

I don't think it's climbing fast enough, so no.

Specifically, Redghia69 submitted his shirt on monday for the Leap year derby and it made it to print. His design was called Just because...

this is why I can't let myself vote anymore.... I always find shirts I want that are like 300 votes short of getting in the fog...

what kind of morons want to wear cute little gophers and monkeys and bunnies on there shirts anyway?

As far as I know, it's not. It wasn't used as the logo for the movie. It's simply used as something worn in the movie and something on the book in the movie. It isn't even on my own personal copy of the book.

if I am wrong, please correct me. i was planning to put this on spreadshirt or cafepress if it didn't win here... but I can't do that if it's copyrighted.

Hi. Just FYI, there's a mistake in your image.

When the gray snake's body bends and passes over the head for the first time, it should go under the gold snake's body.
