Old Man Winter by Sixpennies Old Man Winter by Sixpennies
He’ll steal your breath from you, because he doesn’t have his own…

I’ve had a few requests for more Folklore Jack (previously: [link] ), so to tide you guys over while I’m away for the weekend, here’s another quick lunch break painting for you.

And if you’re going to be at the London MCM Expo this weekend, there's a map for where to find me here [link] if you want to drop by and say hi!

I can't even express how much I love this - those patterns on his cape are so perfect, and I adore the color scheme of the background - ah it's just overall so beautiful. <3

Ooh, I like the frosty beard and long hair hinted of in the picture. He represents both the young and old. Nice.

Technically speaking, Jack is over 300 years old. So he is an old man :giggle:

if you take a look at the breath coming out of his mouth, and the swirls of mist around his head, they create the illusion of a long beard and head of hair

The use of negative space is impressive! I need to start doing that in my own art. By the by, this version of Jack does not look like someone to mess with.

Hey, I was just looking at this the other day. Congrats on the DD!

I think your subtitle is rather interesting for one reason in particular: The only time you ever see Jack's breath in RotG is when he first comes out of the ice. His breath never shows up after that.

:iconsixpennies:
Sixpennies Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! I think the general consensus is that the very first breath you see him give at the beginning of the movie is him exhaling his last human breath, which is why it fogs. From then on, he's breathing as Jack instead of Jackson, which is too cold to fog in the same way; it's a great attention to detail!

That's actually a good point—and if there was only one thing I had to say about this movie, it would definitely be the large amount of attention to little details like that.

I freakin' love how half of the picture is pretty much a big, light area with a little gradient on it. So many people equate detail with good art, but you have to be really gutsy and know what you're doing to pull off a bold "nothingness" like this. Beautiful composition.

yep, thats when elements of design get integrated into illustration.
it is very annoying when people relate detail to good art u_u skill is knowing where things go, and space and negative space play important roles in design and illustrations.

Shouldn't Old Man Winter look... I dunno... OLD? I'd be interested to see what a mature Jack looks like.

MissPinks Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
maybe you can think of him in a way as in historically "old", not physically old. : D but a physically old man winter would be cool to see too, though i'd prefer it in a more traditional style i guess.

I second this opinion. I think he could benefit from some wrinkles- otherwise, he doesn't quite live up to the tile.
