There's something about the gestural quality of think happy thoughts that just makes it so fluid and alive. Sometimes the quickest of art can invoke the deepest of feelings. And here *tifachan has given a well-known tale a fresh look. ( Featured by MPsai )

I've had this bookmarked for ages, and forgot I'd never come and faved it (OOPS! Sorry!), so here it is!

I really adore the story of Peter Pan, and this piece is really beautiful. I love the way you colored it, it fits the piece excellently!

Amazing! Heh, pixie dust everywhere!
I love Peter's expression and pose. It fits the character perfectly. The design of his outfit is great too. The rips in the knees of his pants really ephasize his boyish image. Plus I want those boots and gloves. :P

I'm a die-hard JM Barrie fan, Peter Pan is amazing...from the musicals to the moves and shows to the disney version. You did an amazing job at truely captureing the essence of the character here. From the artist side gouache..insanely hard to use WELL, again you did an amazing job!

You've done us hardcore fans proud *i have the tattoo to prove my hardcore-ness*

Any chance this will be avaliable in print form? Because that would ROCK! ^_^

ah one of the classic

well good use of media here. those thick and somewhat clumsy strokes fits very well into this illustration for children's book story

I thought the "outside the window" part could use a bit more distinquishing color. it looks perfect as it is right now, but I thought it could give more distance into it.

the mood and the magical moment of the story is well captured. I can just look at this forever and I myself start thinking about my own happy thoughts. thank you for sharing this
