Formants, Timbre and pitch.

Are formants or vocal tract shaping the primary cause for a variation in timbre, and does pitch stem entirely from the vocal folds? Whenever you try to sing in a darker or deeper timbre on a certain pitch do you have to also add more breath support? Or can you maintain that almost effortless feeling while still adding depth?

I've been singing for a long time.  Recorded my voice hundreds of times, I love imitating other people and trying to improve my tone but lately I've had trouble with pitch.  I don't think I'm a beginner anymore but I'm always looking to improve.

For intrinsic tone, formants aren't really relevant. Tone is just the net result of all of your tract muscles. And with pitch, you have to achieve full CT tilt / unimpeded cricothyroid and cricoid movement, or else your cords will only produce half of the intended note.
