About the artwork itself: there's actually a scene where Jack goes with Pitch to meet Jack'o Lantern, but I chose to change the setting a bit and try to make it look like a pre-halloween meeting. 'Cuz what goes better than cold, dark and pranks on Halloween nights, right? The quality of the photo blows, I know, but I was so excited and I felt the need to bribe the lovely author with art, cuz I NNED faster updates! Hope it works
Also, it is my first complete illustration, with several characters and complex background and I was excited for that too! XD
I absolutely love this one!!
Ok the composition first. You did a wonderful job, (now my English will prove
lacking to really say what I mean, but I'll try!XD). It's really "whole", you managed
to really creat a scene without overlooking any part of it. Of course are eyes
are drawn to the 3 figures, but wherever I tunr my eyes I see beautiful deatails als in terms
of lightning and shading (the eerie shadows at Jacks' feet beautifully contribute
to the whole scene in a discreet and subtle way..!).
I won't comment too much on the sky, I said already I love how you paint it,
your watecolors are just ... ok not eloquent at all so I'l shut it, hope you know anyway!!XD
The shadows on the bark of the tree (and its shape too) are almost too perfect..i don't how you
manage to make it so SOLID looking with water-colors (you'll have to teach me one day!XD).
But let me get to the 3 of them!
I really Like Jack-o's design, he has something of Jack's palyfulness
(especially in the pose, while for once Jack is sitting properly, so I a way
I feel like he's stealing the "youthful-sprite-like-character" to Frost),
at the same time there's something in his expression that is more subdued, reflective
and melancholic perhaps that I find fitting for his charachter (or how I imagine him to be,
not having read the fanfiction you mentioned!XD).
I like the "play of staring" you did here. How he's looking towards Frost but not really at him,
and both Jack and Pitch look at him but with quite different expressions....
Just by looking at this pic there's so much we can conjecture on their realtionships and intents,
As usual, I LOVE how in each of your works we can always find so much tought and innuendos and atmosphere..
there's always more than immediately meets the eye!
I'm perhaps talking a bit too much so er...I...I'll try to shut it now..!
Just wanted to tell you I love it! And I can't wait to see more of you works!!
Good luck with college my dear!!
Yeah, he is. ^^ Scarecrow's likely to join Pitch in order to take down Jack AND Batman, being masters of fear and stuff. And Jack's likely to have common ground with Mr. Freeze somehow...
*lightblub* Hey, do you think that you can do a pic of Jack Frost AND the Scarecrow? Or Jack'o Lantern with the Scarecrow? It would look so cool...
Can I put this on the Tumbr? I fucking adore it. Wow. Thanks so much
