Peter Pan by PhantomSeptember Peter Pan by PhantomSeptember
Well, you guys have wanted something totally different from me... so here it is... full body, anatomy, disgusting colours...

I've always hated the various illustrations done of Peter Pan, because they aren't ever quite right. He's dressed in leaves, yes, but he has a shirt made of leaves, not just some shapeless mass that is passed off as clothing. Most illustrators just make him look like he's wearing a bush.

Peter Pan was taught courtly manners by the fairies. I think they probably also made his clothes for him. Especially since he didn't even know what the word "sew" even was until Wendy came along. The shirt is made of ginko leaves and the trousers, well, those leaves I'm not really sure about. He has acorn buttons on them though. And yes, he is wearing fishnet under his shirt. Maybe it was a gift from the mermaids.

All that being said, I think this picture sucks. I put a lot of thought into it, but my technique and anatomy are so dreadfully underdeveloped it's kind of depressing really.

Oh well. Better luck next time. I did manage to improve on one thing a little: anatomy. Yay!

A very Fae looking Peter Pan. Looks just like Puck of the Faeries.

It's a great version of Peter! Makes me think of the Goblin King from Labyrinth. It's also great that you didn't give him pointy shoes like most versions, you left him barefoot like he's supposed to be. Peter isn't Peter Pan unless he's barefoot, to me.

He reminds me of Jareth, the Goblin King from Labyrinth.

Well, Peter Pan and Jareth both do steal children. Hmmm *thinks about this*

Looks really good to me. See, I didn't know that peter pan was supposed to wear leaf clothing. Then again, I don't think I've ever even read the original books of many fairy tales.

Thanks! Peter Pan is a pretty small and interesting book if you ever get the chance to read it. Naturally, the book is a lot darker, and better, than the Disney movie version.

You're welcome.
Yeah, I figured as much. Thanks. I'll see if I can find it.

I think this is pretty well done. Keep on drawing and you'll see improvements when you compare them.
