Night's Watch Vows by Wicked-Illusion Night's Watch Vows by Wicked-Illusion
Kit Harington as Jon Snow & John Bradley as Sam Tarly from A Song of Ice and Fire series of books by G.R.R. Martin and Game of Thrones, a TV show based on the books.

ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) - 2.5 x 3.5“ / 63 x 89 mm.

"Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all nights to come."

And we all know (OK, some of us) how well all that turned out...Anyway, of course I couldn't resist drawing one of the great screencaps of the vows scene, although I wish I could say same for the drawing. :/ Kit's face killed me.

Oops, it's past 8:30 a.m., maybe I should finally go to sleep now. :faint:

This looks so beautiful! Don't worry about the photo looking different than the drawing. That's the thing 'bout drawing, isn't it? You would be a photographer if you wanted to produce photos.

You are mad! :wow: You're drawing more and more details! My mum is impressed, too. Once again it was hard for her to believe it's not a picture.
I love the snow and Snow here :giggle: Blurred Sam looks amazing, too!

Thank you so much! :tighthug: I hate the Snow's head(- the hair, the hair is OK) so much even though I re-drew it for so many times as well as certain parts of it, but glad Sammy turned out nice, not perfect, but nice, especially as my first blurry portrait :D

Don't get me started on that. I will spare you and say only that I've never re-drew something for so many times that it still turned out so shitty and wrong every single time that I had to just stop. Tough, I quite like almost all the rest, especially Jon's fur. Oh well, better luck next time :D Have that like the most referenced pic of Jon ever on my to-draw list too so I hope that one turns out OK even though I really wanted this one to be amazing :crying:

I believe that you, as the one who drew it, can see some shortcomings, but for me it looks fine. But I know what you mean, sometimes people like the parts of my drawings which I detest, too, which I don't understand :lmao: For my safety, I will nod next time, instead of refusing to agree :XD:
Hope that next drawing of Jon turns out exactly as you want to :huggle: :heart:

Very well done my dear, aas always superb details and textures! Again I adore how you are able to draw so many details on such a small place :faint:
What I also like about this work is the blurred background, a great contrast to the details :heart:

Uhm, I've had in mind Sherlock only for a long time now, possible multiple drawings of him on one paper, but still haven't decided which ref(s) and what composition but I'm getting close.
