Flight of the Never-Gator by Turtle-Arts Flight of the Never-Gator by Turtle-Arts
My tablet is working again thanks to a new cable! So to celebrate, I broke in the new cord with my favorite children's story/fictional character- Peter Pan! I'd been meaning to do a picture for a couple of days now because I just recently found out that there's going to be a new Pan movie next year and I am super excited about it! I don't know how many of you know it, but it's a dream of mine to someday work on a project for this story. Either to illustrate the original, or do my own, or just whatever.  I've got a little idea somewhere in the back of my head for an off-shoot kind of story, and I've had this design for Peter for quite a while now, which I doodle from time to time. Though his age is always different depending on how I feel that day. I can't ever decide exactly how old/young to make him. :/

Painted this a bit differently than how I normally work.  I've done it before, but not enough to be really comfortable with it yet, since its kind of the opposite of how I normally draw/paint.  But I'd like to continue working in this method for later pictures so that I can get a better handle on it. :nod:

Also, brownie points if you get the joke in the title. ;D

Art and designs property :iconturtle-arts:
Peter Pan is... well actually the copyright for this story is some kind of crazy. I think technically it's kind of public property now, but I'm not really sure, since GOSH has that weird perpetual copyright thing, but it's not a normal copyright and, I dunno. It's weird.

Love this idea.

Working on my own Hook novel--Sea-Road to Neverland--which traces penniless James--who threw off his family name and turned his back on the honest world--from a tavern duel with the quartermaster of the Walrus to rising to become captain of the brig Jolly Roger. Along the way he takes the name "Hook" from a makeshift weapon he mastered.

Now is that amnesiac cabin-boy that everyone calls "Tuck" someone who will someday be a bitter foe of Jas Hook...?

That's weird. D: But I know that does happen sometimes. Like, I watch my brother's account but for some reason it never shows me anything he posts. I checked the settings and nothing's wrong, it just doesn't work. :shrug:

Hook will be played at Hugh Jackman, and he shaved his head for the role!

But nevertheless, great work here, love your textures as usual.
