Gorgon's Ilk

Believe she's done. I may put in a background digitally, paint something in, but I like the clean look Medusa's great (x500) grandaughter. Only one or so in every generation of family developed the snakes in their hair, the rest more of the quality's of Medusa's sisters. ... I haven't decided if she can turn you to stone, yet. Or on a name yet. Pencil crayons, white acrylic.

John Snow and Ghost

A painting of John Snow and his dire wolf Ghost from A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) that was commissioned to me by my friend Bert!

This took just over a month to do. There were a lot of things I didn't understand how to do when I first approached this piece.  Many of my pieces don't have backgrounds, so I've been trying to do them more with my pieces.  So after a lot of practice, a lot of research, new brush making, experimenting, getting textures, taking photos of new textures, learning how to fade things out and making it look a bit painterly, photo ref... finally finished it to my liking.  

Thanks a lot, Bert!
