Peter Pan by jbsdesigns Peter Pan by jbsdesigns
This is an illustration based on the Fairy Tale "Peter Pan" in my vision.

I went with a dark to light technique with this piece. I wanted the "Color Light" to come directly from Peter Pan himself signifying the joy and fun of being a child (which is what he represents). I kept the surrounding colors subdued with a desaturated pleasant-ville look. Peter Pan is a wonderful story if you ever get the chance to read the real novel by J. M. Barrie.

I'm slowly but surely going down the list of my FairyTale Illustrations and painting them. Fifteen Illustrations total! Up next is The Little Mermaid.

This is perfect. You really captured the atmosphere in book so well. :) I don't really like how people draw them like teen, they were kids. Great work!

I love how he doesn't look like an elf, like in Disney! This is amazing! This is how I would picture him if I actually got around to reading the books :XD:

Peter brings light to a childs world of darkness...Where is Tinker Bell....I like the texture and detail...

jbsdesigns Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2012
Thanks. Tinker Bell was originally in the sketch as just a glowing ball of light but I abandoned her midway through because she wasn't working with the light scheme of the whole piece. So let's just say she's hiding somewhere : )

I love that you painted Wendy looking so young and childish in this! She was just a kid when Peter Pan visited her and when I watch the Disney movie, it looks like she's sixteen or so... Anyway, I love how you painted them here. :D
