This was done for the same client as the Headless Horsedude from last week. Jose Saenz sketched the lines for the characters in pencil, and passed them off to me for painting. The chief art direction I was given was that it needed to be magical.
The boy’s head was a challenge to light, as it’s one of those compound cartoon shapes that shouldn’t exist in real space.
Initially I was planning on going more monochromatic with the piece, like I did for the other poster, but it just didn’t suit the mood of a Peter Pan theme. Cheese detector disabled, additive blend mode ahoy, set sail for magical . . .
