Every once in a while I am asked to do portraits or combinations of someones face with a specific character. This is another example of that being done. The woman who asked for this had me use her nephews face as a reference. She then wanted me to use that reference in combination with the original character and create an illustration from the two. After seeing the movie "Rise of The Guardians" from which this is based on, I figured having Jack Frost engaging some of the constructs that he fights was a good way to show some action.
Here are the inks for the original drawing. After presenting the colors, I was asked to soften up the jawline and make the eyes larger in order to make the face look more youthful.
