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!

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.

This is beautiful :heart:...and very sad indeed ;__; ... what a brave man, he knew he would be consumed by darkness so he ask the guardians to take care of his daughter and all the other children from him too... he didn´t deserve that fate, overall cuz he lost his memories... the guardians should help him with that i think (but maybe they didn´t maybe cuz his daughter... maybe cuz he could suffer if she wasn´t alive or something like that... dunno... need read the books :,D)

Anyway, great idea with the pic :D :iconbwavoplz:

The man in the moon, sat on his throne, reading the last moments of the once valiant general. As tears well up in his eyes, he remembered that the nightmare king was once a great man and fought off the corruption till the end. Solemnly he closed the journal and stared at the Earth, wishing for the guardians to end his torment.

Such are the ways of Evil. They are fickle and choose how their champions will become. They can even sacrifice them like pawns if it suit them. Evil plays their game like en endless game of chess, with good facing them.

So true, so very true. I find your choice of anology very intriguing and kind of funny though actually because it reminds me of this comic on tumblr with Pitch and Man In Moon playing chess.... It's an awesome little comic! You should look it up its on the "rotg-art" page.

:iconcryforeverplz: Poor guy. I wish they would have gone into his backstory in the movie (haven't seen it, but I do know that they didn't talk about it). I like how you did his jacket, too, with the constellation on the collar. :heart:
