This tutorial today is going to be on a childhood character that I love. He lives in a magical place where there are fairies and pirates, mermaids and Indians. That’s right I am going to show you how to draw Peter Pan. I know everyone knows who Peter Pan is, I mean if you don’t than I guess you where a real deprived child. It all started back in 1902 when Peter made and appearance in a small sections of the adult novel The Little White Bird. The character became a hit and people wanted more of him, so in 1904 the adventure opened a new door for the witty young fictional star with the debut play Peter Pan or also known as “The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow”. It all happened because a Scottish journalist decided to write the story of this delightful character, and his name is J.M Barrie. He use to read the story of Peter Pan to five children that he eventually shared a close bond with, he was more like a big brother than anything else, the children where the sons of Sylvia Llewelyn Davies which he also formed a long friendship with. She was some what of a motherly figure to Barrie. Sylvia’s husband Arthur started to feel like Barrie was sort of invading in on the family because of all the time he spent there in their home. Eventually Sylvia and Arthur died and J.M Barrie became the legal guardian of the five orphans. The story of Peter Pan truly is heart felt and fun with a variety of adventures. The story immediately takes off as soon as Peter enters Wendy’s room and helps the three children fly to Neverland with the help from Tinkerbells fairy dust. When they meet the lost boys the adventure for these young children just gets better and better until Tinkerbell becomes jealous of Wendy because she feels that Peter likes Wendy more than he does her. Eventually they all run into the Red Indians while Peter introduces Wendy to the mermaids. Captain Hook comes into play as well when the jealous pixy makes a deal with him because Hook says he will rid Wendy from Neverland for ever. Peter Pan eventually comes to everyone’s rescue and saves the day while Hook is left at the mercy of his other arch enemy the clock ticking crocodile that bit off Captain Hooks hand in a previous battle between Peter and himself. The main characters in the story are Wendy, Michael, and John and they set sail on the journey that seemed to last a lifetime. The story will remain a favorite of mine probably until I die. Disney recreated the story in 1953 and became a classic with them as well. This tutorial will show you a fun way to draw Peter Pan step by step. The online instructions are always easy to understand and read to start you on your way to a fun filled tutorial journey. I will see you all very soon my fellow artist.
