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.
