Peter Pan concept

(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

Oh yeah, I'd definitely pay $15.50 to see this in an iMAX screen. 8-)
The Tail base is a bit too high from the point of the Coccyx, but good job on the body lines, nonetheless. 8-)

Quite interesting take. No Tinker Bell?

Peter reminds me of a Danish Troll or a hulder as both are know for having tails like that. But I'm a bit rusty on my Scandinavian mythology and I can't remember much about them other than a hulder is a male huldra.

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

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.
