Peter Pan concept by Detkef Peter Pan concept by Detkef
(comment taken from my Tumblr)

This is some work from a class I have this semester called inspirational art for animation. Our assignment is to take an old concept, and then re-design it in our own way. The teacher made us choose between Peter Pan, The little mermaid and Alice in wonderland.

I chose Peter Pan, and my setting is Norwegian/Scandinavian fairy tales. So the pirates are vikings, the lost boys are little trolls, and Peter is some sort of magical trickster creature. Wendy is a girl from the real world pulled in by Peter.

I’m doing a lot of character exploration and will probably post sketches here of it regularly! This will be a project I’ll be working on all semester

OMG I LOOOOVE HOW YOU DID THIS, all the reasons behind your choices (the setting, the vikings, trolls, etc) are just brilliant and make this whole thing come together so well

Love the designs. Now is Peter nice or a trickster? Pan has darkness in him.

The Lost Boy Trolls are SO CUTE! About how old does Peter appear to be? I'd guess maybe, about 14 or so? As an immortal Fae, Peter doesn't age, but he does appear to be in the middle of childhood. The age range for Peter is usually between 12-14 in most versions. I just love your redesign idea! I've been working on my own redux of Peter Pan for a while now too, but as part of a cross-over with Wizard of OZ and Alice in Wonderland.

very well drawn but why leave out John and Michael.

and why have Captaing Hook look like Hagride and the loss boys look like imps and elves?

Hook is a Viking and the Lost Boys are Trolls. This Peter Pan is based on Scandinavian Mythology.

is that where J. m Barrie got the idea from?

No, he had a younger brother who died, just one day shy of his thirteenth birthday. He said that in his mother's mind, his brother would always be a little boy who never grew up. He was inspired by that idea and wrote Peter Pan.

Dang, this is some fascinating stuff.  I like how you turned Peter and the lost boys basically into a mythological creature tribe.

That's a really cool design of the Peter Pan concept! Personally I think it's a pity to remove the pan flute however, as it sorts of lies in the name Peter Pan.
But hey, violins are cool and it's a good job done with the hand study!
