This piece is fantastic. The shading is PERFECT. Your light and shadow on his face is the best I've seen on deviant art of him. He looks just like the film, and that was 3D animation. you captured 3D with 2D. That's amazing. I applaud you. *claps*
You like the bad guys because they tend to be the most interesting characters with very complex personalities. Pitch is a perfect example of this all mystery and evil but the question is why. Anyway, wonderful job!
Oh man. If this guy showed up at my window, looking like this, part of my heart would be terrified I'm certain. But underneath that fear would be curiosity, even though I know who this "shadow man" is. P.S. I never believed in monsters under the bed, or in the closet, even though I slept with a nightlight for years as a child. Then again, maybe Pitch would still take interest in me because, you see, my worst fear is being afraid. I feel emotions (not just fear) so strongly and so deeply that often, I am afraid of myself. Besides slight, yet rational, fears of heights, my own death, and those I love being hurt, I have no other fears.
Totally agree, Pitch was a babe. And this piece is sooo wonderful; it captures him perfectly! From a completely artistic standpoint, I love the shape of his torso. Also, great job making his eyes pop! (:
