Jon Snow by Majoh Jon Snow by Majoh
Sansa ([link] ) was looking lonely, so I made a Jon Snow to go with her! Both characters are from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.

Please don't post any spoilers in comments! (I'm only part-way through the second book and I wouldn't want it spoiled for anyone else, either)

Painted in Photoshop, about 4 hours total. 3 of which I think I spent on his face. Males are kinda tough. :S

Really nice work, and as others have said, major kudos should go to you for making him look his age. It's so refreshing to see, and good art like this really helps me create a richer mental picture while reading, so a giant thank you for that. :)

There's a lot of Jon Snow fanart on DA, but none of it has a fraction of the personality captured here. This is exactly how I've pictured him throughout the first book and a half. Thanks for doing such a lovely job with my favorite character.

All your portraits of the characters are, in my opinion, bang on. Hell, I think you're better than Amoka.

This is expertly done. I hope you make more. :)

I don't know how I've missed your gallery in searching Deviantart for more Song of Ice and Fire artwork, but I'm glad I stumbled across your page today. Great digital paintings, first of all. Second, this is the closest thing to my personal mental image of Jon Snow I've seen yet. You've really got a knack for drawing people to look their appropriate age. This is Jon Snow, not some angsty guy in his mid twenties. You might call it a speed paint, I don't know, but this is the character right here.
Keep up the excellent work!

(And yes, I do have asoiaf work in my gallery, but if you're not finished with the series, DON'T LOOK AT IT. I don't have spoiler warnings up.)

Such high praise! Thank you kindly. :) I'm so glad that you (and others) think I got Jon right. That just makes me so happy!

Are you really talented that you can do this sort of thing in so short a time or do you have alot of time on your hands?
I like Jon's five o'clock shadow and his eyes are really pretty.
Over all good job.

I'm not sure which it is actually :D I do work a fulltime job with an 8.5 hour day and I get up 2.5 hours before it starts to exercise and shower, but I cram my dinner down my throat at 6pm and usually get to work right away. I generally spend 2-3 hours Sunday cooking an entire week's worth of meals so I have as much time as possible to work in the evenings, since evenings are so short and precious. :D

Sometimes I start a sketch the night before and finish it the next day. I try to work quickly, but sometimes I do end up throwing out a painting even if I've spent a few hours (or more) on it already. I also leave parts of the painting rough, like the clothing is often sketchier than the face.

Thank you for your kind compliments, I'm glad you like it :)

This is one of my favorite Jon images ever. I love that he looks like the 14-16 year old boy he is. And that wispy teenager beard is so adorable.

Thank you!! :D I did notice that about other artists' portrayal of him - he looks at least 30 on the cover of my copy of A Game of Thrones!

Hahah yeah, him and Robb and often enough Dany. I had a hard time telling if the AGOT cover was Ned or Jon at first (though I guess Ghost and Longclaw and lack of beard give it away, but still was confusing).

Are you going to go through the whole Stark family? I like them (though of course not only them).

I thought the AGOT cover was Ned for the longest time! Or even Robert in his more glorious days, until I saw a larger edition of the book that included Ghost in the picture. :D I'd like to do the entire Stark family as well as other major characters, as interest/time permits!
