Jon Snow by JenZee Jon Snow by JenZee

ZOMG!!!! And I'm back....again! Jenzee disappearing tricks :( Very sorry for my long absence! Here is my latest :) Darn you school!

Jon Snow our friendly "Crow" from the Game of Thrones books by George R. R. Martin... I've been wanting to draw him for forever, so here he is finally!

It bugs the poop out of me that all he official artists (for the card game, and cover art) make him look 30 years old... He's supposed to be 14 so I hope the youth-yness comes across in this painting :) I initially drew him with a sword and stuff, but it looked horrible...so I changed it... and then I drew him with some blue roses (there's a significance to that if you've read the books....sorta) and well...then he just looked SUPER angsty so I just left him empty handed and twiddling his thumbs :). Like a nervous little boyyyy!!!!

As always, critiques and comments are welcome! Thanks for lookin' hope you enjoy!

Painter 7.0
No idea how long this took me. More han 30 hours.... I stopped for a long while before I finished it :/

I like everything but the eyes, although with this piece of art, you can take as many 'artitst licenses' as you want xD I love your A Song of Ice and Fire works (and everything else really!). Keep up, you're amazing!!

Super amazing. I agree 100% about the age thing - it's more than likely the artists have never read the book and only go off of what someone tells them (another person who has never read the book!) I think they should make a real attempt at getting FANS who are artists to draw it, that way nothing is compromised! This is beautiful work :D

Love Song of Fire and Ice, need to get next book, but I'm not so good in reading in English, so in my hometown I'll get a copy..
