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!
