We don't have to be alone Jack by AlishmcMalish We don't have to be alone Jack by AlishmcMalish
"I do know what it's like to be cast out, to not be believed in! To long for... a family... All those years in the shadows, I thought no one else knows what this feels like... but now I see I was wrong."

I'll be the first to say RotG was far from perfect and really needed work on the plot. That being said, I still really liked it because it was beautiful and all of the characters were likeable. But seriously... Dreamworks needs to start using a different plot from the same one they rehash over and over...

Regardless, I loved the dark and sad undertones of this one and Pitch's underlying vulnerability and lonliness really worked for me. I really liked how he was just like COME ON JACK. PLZ BE MY BRO. NO ONE WANTS TO BE MY BRO BUT THAT'S ALL I WAHAHAHAAAANT.
His back story is ridiculously tragic in the book. I wish they'd even remotely /hinted/ at it in the movie. He seemed very... one dimensional.

Anyways, I spent about 7 hours on each of these and decided to paint them both in one day because I don't know why but there. c:

I think Pitch's little speech to Jack is very similar to Erik's speech to Charles in X-MEN: First Class.

I like how you did Jack with him sitting there in that position on his stick. Wonderful! Clap

Ahhhh so gorgeous~ Yeah, the film was definitely flawed, but overall enjoyable and containing some very compelling characters. My biggest complaints were the complete lack of Pitch backstory and how they dealt with him at the end. :< I guess we just have to hope for a sequel that delves into it properly~

The film was beautifully animated, and we all fell for Jack's grin and there were a few laughs in there, but yes I agree, the plot needed work :(

This picture is amazing! I love the contrast and the colouring is wonderful :clap:

I think the movie would've been better if they actually started at the beginning rather than come up with a brand new story that doesn't even exist in the novels yet...not to mention tossing newcomers (like myself) into a mess they can't even understand from the very beginning; Who's this? idunno. Are they high? They're all talking to the moon and crap. LOOK A BAD GUY. MUAHAHAHAHA IMMA GO MAKE THESE HORSIE THINGIES THAT APPARENTLY TAKE HUNDREDS OF YEARS TO PERFECT EVEN THOUGH I JUST MADE ONE IN TWO SECONDS.

I mean, the freaking author of the series was involved in this! It had so much potential, but they wasted it on the visuals and action sequences...which are very nice, but that doesn't excuse the lack of creativity for the plot. The ending was alright. They at least didn't go to the lowest common denominator by defeating Pitch with "the power of love". Facing fears is still a bit clichéd, though not as bad.

someone else who understands! there were so many things in the plot that could've been done so much better! i think I'm even venturing to say that Pitch is my favorite part of the movie but i think he really needed his back story brought to life, i think that would've added to his character immensely
*cough* onto the picture i really like ur style of coloring and Pitch's have is done phenominally! Jack's side is very well done too his pose is adorable but i think the wind looks a little too...flat...if that makes sense :blush:

Couldn't agree more with your post <3 I haven't read the book series of course...but really the plot of the movie itself needed some work.
Of course that being said I still enjoyed the movie very much.

Anyway that all aside, this is a lovely drawing. If only the movie had captured more of this Jack/Pitch dynamic you captured so well.

BetahimeTsukiko Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012
You're right about the plot- I think if the writers would have included a bit about how Pitch used to be then maybe the character would have been better fleshed out. That said I absolutely adored the movie and find your work amazing. "Be mah bro Jack!!! T^T"

Oh gosh... just everything about this is beautiful! There's a lot of emotion and I just want to blow this up and put it on my wall. :)

phantommagic Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012
When Pitch said that I thought he was just trying to get into Jack's head. I can totally see him being as lonely as Jack is, longing to be seen, but I still don't trust him. If he really wanted Jack to be his bro he would have made an attempt to reach out to him already. Anyway, this is awesome. I especially like the way you posed Jack and drew the nightmares! And Pitch's smirk... he looks like he's up to something!

I've tried to find the books to read but I can't find them anywhere! Are they worth the read?
AlishmcMalish Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
When you look at Pitch's past you can tell there is definitely some validity behind his statement. He probably was trying to get into Jack's head, but at the same time he is lonely and wants to be accepted by the guardians like he used to be.
But he can't remeber how to be a decent person so he acts out in the wrong way to get attention somehow.
I haven't actually read the books but I've read a lot on Pitch's character in specific since he interested me so much. You can buy the books online I'm sure, but I dunno if I want them cos they're kids books...

vya Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012
Aw, you're so right! <3 While I have no idea about the books, I just wanted someone to actually try and understand Pitch or his reasons for one second, because obviously he just felt alone. (And they all didn't care when he was turning invinsible & was scared?! D: I would feel hurt, too.) At first I thought he was only lying to Jack about that, but he seemed so honest there, that the end really broke my heart.
Still, I liked the movie and the animation. And of course the adorable characters!

And I really love this picture. :heart:
How you drew the horses and their glowing eyes, all the smoke/shadows around Pitch and his face, wow..<3
Jack is perfect, too, his expression is so fitting and I just really like his pose.

Hey, do you know where I could find something that explains Pitch's backstory??? I haven't read the books, though I mean too after finals :)
AlishmcMalish Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just google around. That's what I did. The internet houses the answers to everything C8
LynnTV Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Professional General Artist
I was able to find artwork on it inspired from his backstory but I must not be typing in the right words to find it. But, don't worry about. The next time I go to the bookstore, I'll probably read them then. Thank you though :)

I just read Pitch's story... I can't believe they didn't include something about that! At least have a scene where he might look at a little girl and almost feel sympathy or maybe feel he might want to rescue her or something... It's really interesting how he was actually the keeper of the Fearlings and then they just consumed him. I wonder what he looked like before.

Honestly they probably could have avoided the whole conflict of everyone blaming Jack for Easter not being saved because he got tricked and then just had Jack go on his own for a while instead of getting seemingly booted out of the group and then have the scene where Pitch finds him in the snow.
