Peter Pan by GiftLee Peter Pan by GiftLee
Peter Pan played a large role in my childhood memories.
I always wished I had Tinker Bell so I could fly like him
(I love flying and floating things)
Sometimes when I laid down and couldn't sleep,
I visualized him knocking on the window in the middle of the night
and take me to Neverland, stay young forever.

Though this story seems to be bright and innocent
it's kinda bitter sweet to me. Peter and Wendy loves each other.
But Wendy had to return home, grew up, unlike Peter.
All the lost boys followed Wendy back to the town,
and Peter was left alone in Neverland.
The ending always made me cried a little inside.

Tools : Watercolor, Photoshop.
Thank you for the DD!! means a lot to me XD

This is amazing, I love it. I'm not even a big Peter Pan fan, but I just love this depiction!

I especially like the contrast with the bright leaves and the dark sky. Really cool and symbolic.

This picture is beautiful
peter pan was always my favorite disney character because I loved the idea of being able 
to just fly away cuz growing up is hard. Your drawing is very inspiring and it's nice too see that someone else that loved peter as a kid♡♡♡

Beautiful. And as a young kid, I did the same thing. Except I'd sit on the edge of my bed with the window open and tell the stars the best stories I could think of, of Brave girls that went on adventures to many many lands, just in case Peter happened to be listening.
