So, I promised in my previous Game of Thrones post, that I would be doing a series of posts, sort of in honour of the show, to tie us all over until Season 5 begins. The first few posts, will be about the best and most striking Fan-Art I can find, for individual characters, and this week, we continue with everyone's favourite Crow, Jon Snow!
So, our first piece, features Jon Snow and his Direwolf, Ghost and was done by Ania Mitura. A Polish artist, who's Deviant Art page you can find here. She's done a series of really beautiful art pieces, both for Game of Thrones, and some not. You'll probably see a lot more of Ania's art in the coming weeks, as I'll most likely be sharing some of her other GoT pieces.
This next piece comes from Justin Wong, a concept artist and illustrator from California. This one struck me as quite beautiful, not only because I love how he's done Ghost, but I like when an artist creates the full scene, and not just the character. You can check his page out here.
Our third piece, depicts one of the earlier scenes in Game of Thrones, when the Starks find a dead Direwolf and conveniently, her six newborn cubs. This piece comes from Sykaaa, aka Jessica on Deviant Art, who's page you can find here. She also has a Facebook page and her own website.
The fourth piece comes from Pixx aka Jiri Dvorsky, a professional Digitial Artist from the Czech Republic. You can check out more of his artwork on his Deviant Art page here, which I highly recommend you do, as he has a number of visually stunning pieces, all done in great detail.
And that concludes Part 2 of my GoT related articles. As with the last one, I'd like to give special mention to artist Jim Tuckwell, who began (but sadly never finished) a series of Illustrations for GoT playing cards. His work inspired another artist to actually make a full pack, and if you want to have a look at that one, you can check it out here. Here are the originals, from Jim.
Next up will be Catelyn Stark! Stay tuned for next weeks post!
