My redesign of the Lost Boys’ home. I spent a lot of time thinking about why it had to be underground [in the book] and came to the conclusion that Peter just loved his own cleverness so much when Hook couldn’t find it. Following that lead, I re-imagined the house being a seemingly impossible situation - a large boat turned upside down amongst some ruins on the top of a cliff that’s inaccessible unless you know the way. This, I think, is fitting. Peter probably greatly enjoys flaunting his home on top of a cliff Hook can’t get to. This is one of the earlier sketch comps I made before moving to this part:

First round roughs for Tiger Lily and her father, Great Big Little Panther. I’m trying really hard to avoid racist stereotypes and one of my ways to work through this is by changing the ‘Indians’ to centaurs, a warrior herd that’s undefeated in battle. GBLP’s horse body is based off of Chinese war horses, while Tiger Lily has an Arabian horse build [of about a three year old filly]. My reference material was a lot of things, but the centaurs are going to have lots of Mycenaean and Ancient Egyptian influence. If you think I’ve gone and messed something up, let me know!

This is what I do with my not-free time. Design comics about a bunch of Shakespeare characters in high school. I already did all their little blurbs and personality and relationship tree stuff. I super don’t have time for this but I can’t stop?!
I’m such a nerd

Been SUPER struggling with Hook but I’m feeling really good about this now that I’ve started to work on it some more!

This is the image from my header on twitter. If it looks a little… spacious, that’s because it’s actually the cover of my portfolio book and has a space on it for text and my info :)
Also I fell into the damn Ariel trap. Listen, it is not my fault that salmon pink and teal are the world’s most perfect complimentary colors, I can’t help it okay
