This project was a design project I did at school and the story I chose was Peter Pan. My main idea came from the fact that the main character, Wendy, said that it was a choice game about growing up, and that the main elements I used were playing cards and ruff collar, because I think that life is like a long game of cards where we have to make the right choices all the time, and Peter Pan the elf and Captain Hook the villain are the two forks of a junction. Peter Pan, the elf, and Captain Hook, the villain, are two crossroads.

First Quick Sketch
After completing the presentation of the project, I did a second revision of some of the main characters and redrew them. The use of elements has been revised and repositioned to improve the costume.
I think the whole story takes place in what feels like a dream world before growing up, in which the heroine Wendy is confronted with a choice about whether she wants to accept the fact of growing up or not. But actually growing up is not exactly fraught with difficulties; it is like a playing card waiting to be drawn, which if viewed in a different light, becomes a complete pattern again.
