I LOVE THIS!!
Beautiful piece to accompany Jon Snow.
I like the mood. Good job.
Quest'opera e' semplicemente meravigliosa! Tanto di cappello!
Do you paint on top of pictures? The likeness is striking. Awsome job however you did it. Looks very nice.
Thanks! I didn't paint over the picture. I usually put the reference right next to my canvas and I begin to draw using the guides or the grid to make the proportions right. Like when you are copying something on paper. I also try to change the lights and some other details to find the mood I want. I made these as some kind of exercise, so tracing the photo would have been useless.
You do a really great job with these characters, great work.
