Game of Thrones: Jon Snow by JMichek Game of Thrones: Jon Snow by JMichek
Another image that took a long time, mostly cause of school and me putting it off. I started this one before the show aired and I wanted to have it done before it did, but I guess it's still ok to show now since everyone's all hyped up about it.

"The Other"/"White Walker" that Jon is being faced with in this image is kind of how I imagined what they look like when I was reading the books. They are described as having armor that shifts in colour, but I didn't know how that would look in a painting. So, I gave him ice armor-like stuff that could probably have the same effect. I know The Others are supposed to come out at night but.. I forgot about that until it was a little too late.

I'm sorry if this image is a bit of a spoiler too.. :/

And a big thank you to those that gave me crits on this image to make it more cool :D

`Phoenixleo says: "Game of Thrones: Jon Snow by *JMichek is chilling to look at as well as a beautiful fan art of the Game of Thrones series!" *painted-bees says: "This is an amazingly dynamic and immersive composition which reads much like a still from a cinematic. The expression and gestures are fantastic, and the colors are cold enough to feel. Over all, a really fantastic Game of Thrones homage!" Also suggested by *Badjoojoo.

Woooah! I have no idea why I haven't seen this before! It's gorgeous, marvellously done! I wish I could do something like this, I been eager to create a GoT's artwork for a long time, but I just can't even picture it well on my mind. You say school wasn't letting you finish this, I guess is like "art school" or something, because if you're a highschool-er you're like a super genius. If not, you are still a super genius. Greetings :)

This is fantastic!! I love how dynamic it is and both of the subjects look amazing. Jon also looks much closer to the image I have in my head rather than his curly-haired beardy self on the show.....

I really like the fact that you portrayed ''Jon Snow'' as a 14 year old (sorry I'm not good at remembering their ages) and also... I think the way you drew the Other is much better on how they (HBO) depicted them... he looks so cool :D

I second the part about how your Others are better than HBO's. The "wrinkly ugly blue human" Others we see later aren't particularly impressive.

Incapable of commenting due to freaking details and skill of this piece.
Setting as desktop background.
One question though, are those arms on the Other? I'm referring to the part of the Other that Jon Snow looks like he's trying to swing at. Or is it some other part of the anatomy? Doesn't look like a face, cuz then the arm would be growing out the head...?
Anyways. It doesn't really matter xD this is just extremely overthe top-ly awesome.
