Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children // Movie Synopsis

This is the latest movie that I had watched. It is about a sixteen-year-old Jacob Portman grew up listening to his grandfather tell him stories of living on an island in a children’s home where each child had a supernatural ability of some sort.
Grandpa Abe tells Jacob fantastic stories and shows him photos of peculiar children—invisible boys, strong girls, and people with mouths in the back of their heads. Jacob believes these tall tales until he gets old enough not to.
When his beloved grandfather passed away, Jake clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds a magical place known as Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers – and their terrifying enemies. Ultimately, Jake discovers that only his own special peculiarity can save his new friends.

Some stills/posters from the movie;

For my design, I wanted to combine all of the children’s characteristics in a single image. I thought that it will be not be meaningful if I just create characters that represent themselves in a straightforward manner, from the movie itself.

This first draft looks clustered and chaotic, with disorderly manner, hence, for second draft, I aligned the children at the background. This can also portray a message which says that the children looks normal from afar, but as you get to know their secrets/ability, they are different. They are peculiar. 

Peculiarities are special powers syndrigasti are gifted with. As said in Library of Souls, a peculiar’s soul (containing their peculiarity) is precious.

List of known Peculiarities:

As for my last draft(below), I had included the abilities of levitation, invisibility, bee control and dream manipulation into one form. As they were all different, they had a sense of comradeship as they knew the difficulties of being different. They are united as one, hence, I placed all of the different abilities/powers into a single form.
