And this is more or less how Pitch parted ways with the boy.

All characters belong to Dreamworks

Soooo cool! :la:
But it's true, it's kind of sad, it's like Pitch had got bored of
the kid while he (I think) liked Pitch =(
May I ask you a question? when you mean "All characters belong to Dreamworks"
you mean the kid too?

Pitch has bigger fright to make, so yes, he is getting bored. As for the kids... "liking" Pitch is too big of a word. His presence is terrible on the nerves. But I guess, a known fear is slightly less scary than an unknown and unseen one (depending on the situation, of course).
Well, I guess I could claim the kid as my own creation, but I'm no lawyer so let's not play too much with the fine details of making fan comics.

Thank you! I must admit, the cleft palate sort of naturally sprang up the first time I drew him. Happy accident, I guess...

Very happy! Although perhaps not for the boy. But including allowed for some very interesting story developments and it just made him sooo much cuter ^_^

Not to mention, Pitchs interactions with him were adorable. Makes me wonder though, does Pitch 'ever' think about him? And how 'did' the boy die? Will that ever be covered?

Well. There is Pitch continuing to destroy his chance of having any sort of bond with a child.

The jerk.

At the time, he didn't know how lucky he was to have any sort of...friendship. He wasn't looking for one, didn't even think he needed any.

I suppose the boy being scary to adults is an understandable reason for Pitch to like him. At least as much as he likes any human. And fo a child already used to frightened reactions wherever he goes, one person who would stay with him, even Pitch, must have been wonderful.
I wonder if there might actually be something twisted-loving in Pitch's happiness that the boy died a death he did not fear.

yeah, my brother still needs some surgery down the road once he hits puberty because the cleft causes uneven growth around the mouth but he's a trooper.

Wow. Okay so I read this on your tumblr first and my eyes did that thing where the glimpse ahead by accident and I saw Pitch's face and he looked so happy and calm and sort of soft like how I think he would have looked at his daughter and I started crying and I didn't even read the page yet. A+ man, you're doing a beautiful job with everything! Your style is beautiful and you do a good job capturing those tiny little things that make the characters come to life!

Ah, I've been wondering why the boy had been wandering around alone without his family (if he had one) being concerned about his absence. I figured he was an orphan--but never realized he was an outcast too. Poor kid.

I love your version of Pitch! So sad that this is probably as close as he would ever get to caring for a human. Poor little boy. :(

Do you mind if I ask how long it takes you to put one of these short stories together? Does it take a lot of planning and quick sketches or do you just sort of dive in and let things work themselves out?

It's hard for me to put a time frame on it, as it's a lot of stop and go. The idea and thumbnails can be relatively fast. I'll do fixes when I rough it out, then it's just clean ups and finishing touches. As I said, a lot of stop and go, so hard to see how long that takes.

Thank you for the reply! It must be hard to keep track of these kinds of things, but I'm heavily into this kind of format for comics at the moment so I'm really interested in learning more about different people's processes. So much brilliant work out there, I must know more!

I seem to be interested on how Pitch was curious or fascinated by a young child with misshapen lip.

How just one tiny flaw on a child could bring such an enormous impact on the whole village he's living, calling him a 'cursed' child. I was just wondering how would Pitch, the Nightmare King and the Embodiment of Fear, feel compassion to a little boy? (I can't really say if it's 'compassion' or 'empathy' either. Probably a somewhat "stranger meets child" relationship?)

I wouldn't call it compassion or empathy - more like curiosity. The equivalent of throwing oil on fire and seeing how big a flame he can get.

I wonder if he meant to come back to the boy. He seems to develop an attachment to the kid. I wonder if kid died in the meantime. It would explain the freak out when Toothiana brought it up in the battle.

Pitch might be fear, but he still human (or human enough) to need attachments or desire the company of others. Fear and love are the deepest of human emotions.

He didn't quite left. He just hung around for a little while until he lost interest and moved on.
And is Pitch truly human? Hmmm...

It's so sad. I can;t believe that people in the middle ages are so engrossed in fear that they even believe that a misshapen mouth meant a curse.

I am very surprised by the depiction of Pitch in this one. I did not expect him at all, but considering the frightening "aspect" that he and the boy somehow shared, it's understandable for Pitch to actually understand the boy.

rufftoon Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013
It was fear due to ignorance. Not stupidity, people really didn't know better. Genetics and medicine still had big steps to make.

Pitch gets fascinated by all aspects of fear. Some amuse him more than others.
