Master of the Stalks. by Endling Master of the Stalks. by Endling
EDIT 5/06: Made the background white so as to match up with the other Everafter portraits.

Advanced warning: You will miss out on about 85% of the detail if you don't full view this. :XD: Pleease?

It's high time I did some more color work.. got to bone up on my Photoshop skills something fierce. So I figured I'd do so whilst filling out the rest of the cast of Everafter. :)

What is Everafter you say? Well! It's a webcomic I will be continuing shortly.. you can see the prologue here: It's kinda bloody!

Who is this..? Well.. he's got a lot of names, but they're all the same. A legend in the fairy tale world.. or a self-proclaimed legend, anyway. He's slain giants left and right.. but has now found a more delectable prey, tucked away in the corridors of the asylum..

He was inspired by the illustrator Eric Kincaid. I grew up reading a nursery rhyme book he illustrated, with exceptionally fluffy haired kids in it, in peculiar costumes. But I also have to give credit to my friend ~bluealaris .. the way she makes her faces came into my mind a lot. Thanks V. :)

Hope you guys like it.

Hrmmm a Slayer of Giants? Well if he isn't a legend out of Old Norse Myth, then he's likely Jack Hornet

I was the child who grew up on a healthy diet of original German fairy tails where Rapunzels prince falls into a bed if thorns and not every ending is a happy one. You stories bring me back to my childhood if that's sad or wield oh well every time a leg goes flying,ni smile a little bit.

does he lure in his prey by making them have a false sense of hope by playing the harp beatifully then murderering them swiftly that would be awesome! god cant wait to see whats gonna happpen next.

It's Jack from Jack in the Beanstalk. :)
ReinTheHedgehog Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2011
Awesome art!! It looks really cool. Although, when you say Master of the Stalks, even knowing that Everafter has a lot of fairy tale characters, I still think of He Who Walks Behind the Rows.
puppyXmizuki Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011
WoW doing that much wourk on the details!!!... Its insanely great!!

Who's the girl?
lumpley Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011
I think the girl is part of how the magic harp sings by itself. At least, that's if this is Jack the Giant Killer. Which I can't say for sure, as I'm not the artist. (Am I close on this, 'Endling?) If he is Jack, I'm curios to know what happened to his beanstalk. (Or that might be a different Jack. If so, what happened to him?)

Can fight on par with Red and can cast spells using his sword/harp/fairy.
the fairy is equivalent to navi making for funny antics
Black-Rose01 Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2010

GreyHeaven Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2010
I don't remember Jack in the Beanstalk having a harp in it. Or a fairy.
Shii-n Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2010
i believe (not quiet sure) he needed a singing harp and a goose who laid golden eggs for some reason.. althought i dont remember the bit about a fairy.
Booomgirl Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Gawd, this looks amazing. (OO) Then again, what of your's doesn't?

For some reason, I really like his face and expression, especially his eyes. ^^

Is the little girl thing attached to the harp sword? = O
sonic0htf0fanficgirl Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2009
that's the hen. and no. she's not attatched to the sword. but i think jack tied her legs to the sword... i might be wrong.
-fanficgirl out :heart:
sonic0htf0fanficgirl Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2009
sry. i meant to say goose!
beyondtheedge Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2009
All the other characters look insane, or scared... he just looks like he'd smirk as he cut off your head.
I get a mercenary vibe off him (maybe he's smirking because he's getting paid to do something he'd do for free).

Also, his eyes make me think of the villain of that old Snow White sequel Happily Ever After. Lord Maliss, I think? Same half sleepy, evil looking eyes.
He is not one of the good guys, that's for sure.
