Oh snow! I am lagging behind, didn’t see that one coming ;)
When I saw another Jon Snow on Instagram, I thought to myself, my idea is not so original but maybe with a little joke in there, I could make it my own.
“You know nothing Jon Snow” is a line from Game of Thrones that stuck in my head for quite a while.
This drawing is based on a still from the series. I am pleased to recognize some of the styles in my favorite Marvel Comics.
I was lucky that I only smeared Ygritte’s cheek a little bit. The Pentel brush tip pen does take a couple minutes to set. I was more careful after that and worked mostly from left to right as I am right handed.
What makes this challenge so difficult is the intention to share the work. Perhaps I should be shameless about presenting meh entries. But that’s easier said than done!
Shading is a challenges and geometrically speaking, triangles are your friends. As always, the tough part is the face where the shading can easily overwhelming. I say as always; because faces are generally the most detailed.
Game of Thrones is a series I truly respect as far as entertainment is concerned, it strikes a good balance between grit and fantasy but it became old hat for the last season.
Mr Robot, another series which I love, is probably going to have the same problem. However, it is a lot edgier so I will suspend disbelief quite a lot as I enjoy this final season.
