straight on till morning by chibighibli straight on till morning by chibighibli
Peter Pan is cool. He can fly. He fights pirates. He has his own fairy. He makes out with mermaids. He has his own cult following of little boys in animal skins. He lives in a tree house. I don't know about you guys, but I wanted MORE THAN ANYTHING to be Peter Pan when I was growing up.

Do you guys remember the Peter Pan cartoon that was on in the early 90's? I didn't get to watch it all that often because my parents had a lock on TV, but the few times I *did* see it, I remember thinking "This is a lot cooler than that Disney version. This Peter Pan doesn't look like he's going to dance a ballet. He looks like he's going to kill some pirates." In the spirit of THAT Peter Pan, I give you MY Peter Pan. He's got tattoos.

I'm pretty proud of this mostly because of the background. I actually LIKE it. I don't think I've ever done a picture with a background that I really liked.

Wow, Peter Pan has always been AWESOME to me. And as for the old cartoon show, all of the episodes have been recently posted on Youtube! Here: [link]

I do like the cartoon series better than Disney (but I still love the Disney one) because in the series it follows the book better XD

Anyway, great pic! The style and details are amazing!!

Sefie-chan Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2008
VERY nice! I really enjoy your style, and I like seeing Peter Pan being expressed more like what his original concept was.
My best friend had a huge crush on Peter Pan all growing up xD
LittleFoxglove Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2008
Less "Peter Pansy" more "Lord of the Flies" perhaps? =D

Hell yeah!
Zeta-Roda-Sigma Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2007
This is my all time favourite picture of Peter, ever. Period. Fantastic.

Very unique and charming rendition of Peter Pan! My favorite part has got to be his curly hair. Simply wonderful!
Albino-Orange Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2007
Your right, who doesnt want to be Peter Pan when your a kid?

I thoroughly enjoyed looking at this picture, and I envy your skills in shading.

I love original peter pan ideas ^_^
I love his outfit and Tinkerbell's design. They both certainly look fit to fight some pirates XD

I dont know if it was an anime of peter pan, but if it was I know where u can download it...
I love peter pan stories too! I like it all!!! My fav one is tinkerbell!!! XD
Shmelanna Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2006  Student
I had those exact same sentiments regarding Peter Pan when I was growing up, too. And I adored that show XD I love your version of him.. it's very quaint.. it reminds me of an illustration from an old version of the book before it got Disney-fied.. and the detail is awesome too, especially that background. A definite :+fav:
rosalafae Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2006
I *love* Peter Pan - especially your version. Wows much.
MyHeroEdvard Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2006
Wow... I just ran across this and it's like my current interests mixed in with my childhood fantasies, all wrapped up into one awesome piece. There was definately a stage in my past when I didn't answer to my name, Abi... I would only reply if I was addressed as "Wendy".

I love the humor added by the anti-hook tattoo as well as the detailing in the stitching together of the gloves and the freckles on his cheeks. My only suggestion would be some extra shading in the toe area of the right (Peter's left) foot so the toes and foreshortening were defined more. *wants to be a Lost Boy so badly and sleep in a hammock*

oathkeeper-auctor Featured By Owner May 28, 2006
Yay! I love it when people do their own version of something classic, and I agree killing pirates is much more important than doing ballet!

He looks great, and maybe the frog-ish-like position means he's ready to jump into a raging battle! And he has a great sword.
IceSiren Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2006
God I recall the good old days of looking up at the stars and looking too see if I could find neverland...or maybe just a flying pirate ship :D *sigh*

Your artwork is wonderful and I love the fairy, wonderful details :) keep it up *faves*
SoraPyper Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2006  Professional General Artist
heh heh i think you captured peter very well^_^ and i like how he does have enough elements of the origonal character of peter in him that you can tell its him, but you've still made the picture very much your own. gorgeous^_^

Yay! Anyone who can fly rocks ^_^ !

(though rocks can't fly :confused:)

I had to click on this just because of the title!
Awesome pic! Sadly I like all the movie versions of Peter better than the actual book.
Y'know the pirates were kinda cool in their own way too, though.

Great! My support and pat on the shoulder.
tranki-zieleniack Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2005
pretty! I love Peter Pan's face in it:)
bluechimeraz Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2005
WOw...this makes me so happy! My obsession with Peter Pan is very much appeased!! (we won't go into how many versions of the movie I have O_o) All my life I always wished he'd come flying in through my window and take me away to fact, I still do lol This is just wonderful! The Disney version is all well and good, but it doesn't capture a lot of the tone of the book. haha I love the rooster tattoo, very creative and original ideaXD I'm amazed, this is so creative! I love the detail and attention put to his clothing, and the creativity that makes it so unique. Great job!! X3
chibighibli Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2005
Hm, well, you might be interested to know that the BBC held a contest for a written sequel to Peter Pan last year, to be published this year! It's the 100th anniversary of the stage production this year, so the copyrights are being released, meaning that whoever wants to can take up the storyline and do what they want. The sequel is supposed to be coming out this summer or something....

Anyhow, thanks for your kind words! I'm glad you liked :)

great expression in his eyes. and your background is beautiful, you shoud be proud:) great gallery
monochrome-star Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2004
I agree. Disney completely neutered him, poor thing. Never saw the show in the 90's because i was just born back then...I hope to see it sometime. This picture is brilliant, and I love his hair.
*pokes hair* ahhh! :giggle:
:glom: lovely.
Looked like my dad's hair in the 90's...and my mum's...:wtf: :shrug:
Happy holidays!
Onatopa Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2004
Something about the arms is not right...they look like legs---if that makes any sense at all.
I love the image and the whimsy. One tattoo would be plenty, me thinks, but that's my opinion.
Rimrose Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2004
Oh my gosh! Peter Pan is awesome, I've always wanted to fly! This picture captures the essence of him so well! Your picture ROCKS! :+fav:
TrueIcon Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2004  Student
OMG!!! i loved Peter Pan when i was a kid too!!! i would pretend i could fly and everything!! he is my favourite childhood story character!!! lol i always pretended i was Wendy and he would come and take me away with him, except i wouldnt come back and we would lead the lost boys together. :giggle:
and this pic... well, lets just say, its now the ultimate favourite out of all my favourites!!! yes lol way better then the disney version of him... little gay pixie!! i love this so much!! you just created a way better and more loved version of him!! yay PETER PAN ROCKS!!! :clap: :w00t:

Wow. I absolutly adore this whole style. I love his facial expression - fits Peter Pan perfectly. The cutest feet I've ever seen! Not to mention the background is so charming! This rocks hardcore.
Insta fav!

My oh my! Brilliant designs for both Tink and Peter.. And I just can't help but oggle over the wonderful coloring. I'm not on my own computer at the time so I'm trying to make sure I don't drool all over the keyboard! Great work, my friend!
