Illustration of Peter Pan sulking in the nursery

Personal work: Peter Pan

Here is how my Peter Pan piece came to be. There are a lot of decisions being made along the way, you’re supposed to make those decisions in the early drawing phase as it’ll save you a lot of headaches later on. Something I really want to get in the habit of, instead I tend to get impatient and jump into painting.

Although I only show one version of Tinkerbell in here I actually drew her in in 5 different ways before deciding the scene was better without her.
