Final Prayer of General Pitchiner by killaminjaro Final Prayer of General Pitchiner by killaminjaro
Day 2753 of Night Guard (The final journal entry of General Kozmotis Pitchiner)

The Fearlings have won. I have no strength left to resist their tantalizing trickery. If anyone comes by this journal, please, don’t let my daughter know what I have become. Tell her… I died valiantly.

I pray to the Guardians, please, protect my daughter and all the other children to come into the world, from the evils of the world. Including me.

I don’t have much time left… They’re here for me—

I thought Pitch was a great character, then I read his backstory and my poor heart. This is a little different than the canon story that William Joyce wrote, since Pitchiner wasn’t writing when he decided to succumb to the Fearlings, but I thought it would be sort of sweet, if he kept a military journal at least and wrote a bit everyday about the state of his prisoners and any changes.

I wanted to depict him as closely to the canon as possible, with the same sort of features, but with a more human aura. Also, since he’s part of the Golden Army during the time of the Constellations, he has the insignia of Cygnus.

I need to draw the other characters too. ugu, my poor hand.

THIS is so perfect! I love the foreshadowing of Pitch Black in this pic. [See what I did there, with the shadows?]
Also great eye colour for both versions of this guy.

Don't know if I made a post already, but dear, this fanart is one of the best I've seen of him.  All who read the books feel for him and I think he is an awesome charakter.  Maybe figures who are written that way Pitch is are so real to us, because they're somhow drawn from real feelings. Thank you for this art!

what was pitch before be the bogeyman...?
killaminjaro Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013
Sorry for the late answer.
Pitch was a General of the Golden Army and kept guard of the Shadow men and Nightmares before they consumed him and changed him into the Bogeyman.
I hope that answered your question *U*

He was a general of Tsar Lunar's army. The greatest hero ever existed, and dedicated father to Mother Nature. He was soon warden to all the sealed evil, until his will weakened.
