Pitch story lineart by rufftoon Pitch story lineart by rufftoon
We were very happy that the studio allowed us to tell a bit more stories with the characters. Hope we didn't mess them up too much, ha ha!

I have been working closely with Perry Maple and WoonYung Jung, to great visual artists that helped add that extra layer of sophistication to my simple lineart.
It was a big collaboration between us 3, and in order to help makes thing simple, I would try and divide the different elements of the line art (thank you Photoshop for allowing layers). The characters and backgrounds would be drawn separately, so were the word bubbles.
The whole, completed and colored story can be found here:

When I first saw this image, I was listening to this: [link]

For some reason, I thought the soundtrack theme fit Pitch's character, at least in this comic, nicely; a balance between dark mystery and ominous foreboding but with enough melancholy that I got a profound sense of Pitch himself. A kind of empathy for him and his motives and desires. Sounds extremely vague, but I thought I'd share that.

If you've read all the books, tell me what happened to Katherine in the future after her adventures in the first book?

Do you mean after the Nicholas St.North book? Two more were written after that ( Warrior Eggs at the Earth Core and Toothiana Queen of the tooth fairies army) with more to come. I've read all 3 published so far. Do you have trouble getting the books? Have you checked if your local library has copies?

I read Nicholas St.North book) But other books aren't translated yet into Russian. In it all problem! And so there is a wish to learn history quicker! ) ) ) That, for example became with Gin and Katharine)

This is a great comic. 8D I love the story and you guys did a great job collaborating on the artwork. :)
Do you mind if I try to incorporate the story in this comic into a fanfiction I’m working on? I’ll give you credit for it. If you don’t want me to, I completely understand, but I figured I'd ask first.

You know I wonder whether the bit of dialogue about Santa rewarding the good kids and Pitch scaring the bad kids was supposed to be a little hint at what we over here in Germany(also other parts of Europe) have as Knecht Ruprecht or the Krampus respectively... because they both work with Santa and are kind of responsible for taking care of the naughty children...
Since there was the hint at the "tooth fairy mice" for some countries...

I say I say I say I say I say I say this is really good work! I am really thrilled to read those extra stories about pitch. While I thought pitch was a total badie in the closet. Now I see him more a resemblance of Fear. From the Pitch Story, it sounds like fear is a good thing too. He's like the scary story that keeps children from wondering into danger, fear of failing that made us more careful on our work.. Of course, too much fear is not good. But a little fear would make us think of a backup plan, take up safety factors, and of course, safety FIRST in a construction yard.

And actually, I like the idea of him scaring bad children into good kids. :D And... you know.. Pitch ending up like that kinda make me feel sad for him.

After seeing the trailer and big @$$ display at our theater my friend and I want to know if it was intentional to have the badie look like David Boreanaz in his Angle days from Buffy? You seam like the person to ask. Ether way we are going to see it.

His whole design was already done by the time I came in, so I don't know if his look were inspired by anyone in particular. Possibly a big mix of many.

20 years of various jobs in television, features and video games. Some people are lucky and start at the big studios straight out of school- I took the long road and don't regret it. Every bit of experience helped.
