Adaptation B - What If?

"Lies, my dear boy, are found out immediately, because they are of two sorts. There are lies that have short legs and lies that have long noses. Your lie, as it happens, is one of this that have a long nose" 

What if Pinocchio never became a real boy? 

I want my Adaptation B project to be based upon the character of Pinocchio. Specifically the Carlo Collodi version. 'The Adventures of Pinocchio'. I will create a character design and 3D Model of the character as if his wish never came true, and for the rest of his life he was a puppet. I want the character to have aged and not be the young boy that the world knows to be Pinocchio, instead he will be older and flawed. 
Pinocchio's flaws are the things that will help to drive the design. 

Collogi describes him as a rascal, a disgrace, confirmed rogue, scapegrace, ragamuffin, imp, and obnoxious. It is said he always gets out of trouble which could mean he is quite a sly character. His creator (father) Gepetto once called him a "Wretched Boy".

All of this description helps with shaping the characters future story and the way in which I will design them for the project.
