It's beautiful artwork and I know you probably have spent a lot of time on it, but if I may offer one bit of constructive criticism. I am hesitant to post this because this looks like you've done so much work on it. But Peter and Wendy look too old. Both of my sons ages 11 and 10 said they look like they're in their 20's.

I guess you can go whatever direction you want with it but Peter and Wendy are supposed to be pre-teens and these pics don't look like kids.

I apologize if you're offended by this it's just my opinion.

You're not offending!! :D I've had a couple people point out the same thing.

While Peter's been shown in may versions in a variety of ages, between 5-18, a lot of people believe JM Barrie intended Peter & Wendy to be around 14. His inspiration for Peter Pan came from his brother dying two days before his 14th birthday. His mother said " At the very least he'll forever be a boy, and never grow up".

So I decided to aim for 14. Their serious expressions in these snapshots would certainly make them look older as well, so I see what you mean

Thank you for your input! :carrot:

This is some truly fantastic work. I can't find a single thing I don't like. The art is wonderful and the colors are just gorgeous. I love the way you've drawn Tinkerbell! Makes me think of "Faeires" by Alan Lee and Brian Froud, a book I adore that I've had since I was a kid. I hope Fate showers you guys with money and fame...in that order. :har:

I may have said this before, but it bears repeating... Renae's art is beautiful, and your colors are amazing on top of them. These pages are stunning.

Thank you very much, Jasen! :D

Here's another one! The nun is homage to my grandmother who used to collect nun figurines. She also provides a great contrast to Peter.
