The suggester writes: "An awesome fanart from an awesome series! And very distinctive in look, too, with the characters being instantly recognizable all the same. I also love the colouring and composition!" ( Suggested by solfieri and Featured by alexandrasalas )

I love it how you made Ghost so big and look like the book direwolves instead of just drawing the animal from the show (:
I dig that!

So many shades of gray and all so distinctive. Learning lots about coloring just by look at this... you have such great style! :)

Thank you Seira! Grey is always really hard to work with, cause it can get really muddy so i'm glad you feel it's working!

I work almost exclusively (and amateurishly :D) in b/w, so I know what you mean D:
I picked up a painting a few hours after I started it and could not get the neck of the person right, no matter how much I messed with it :P

You have the greatest style ever. Seriously, there's something so unique and quirky about it that...suffice to say I love it. Big, capital letters here for the "LOVE the style". Thanks for sharing :)

Seriously, it was something like instant enthusiasm when I took a look at your pictures. May I ask, how did you develop your style? What are (or have been) your artistic influences?

I'm really flattered you like Tyrion :)

Hah. Thanks again!
How did i develop my style. Probably just constantly working at it really. The stuff i do now is VERY different to what i was doing even 3 or 4 years ago in terms of (i think) quality and standard. I really struggle to look at anything i've done more than a couple of years ago. But i don't know...i guess i like to treat even serious imagery with a slight sense of humour. I think it makes things a bit more accessible for people as viewers. And that might not mean flat out funny pictures but setting giving things a stylised cartoon edge etc.

My influences are probably far too many to number, (i'm always looking for new and interesting things (especially since i found Deviant Art! It's very easy to lose a day trawling portfolios!). But the guys i keep coming back to you would be Herge, Uderzo, Miyazaki, Toth, Sakai, Bruce Timm, Darwyn Cooke, Steven Riddell and Tony DiTerlizi.

Too many to name! haha.

First of all thank you very much for taking the time get back to me with such a detailed answer. In fact, I think aside from the insane amount of pretty accumulated this is what makes me love Deviant Art so much - the way you have a chance to get into contact with your favorite artists and ask stuff (such as I'm doing right here ;) ).

Someone once told me that art is the way you see the world - and I really like this dash of humor in yours. I guess that's what makes your art stand out. It still feels dramatic (i.e. this picture very much so), but as a viewer despite the initial "gasp!" there's still a small smile on your face.

Thanks for naming your influences, too. Of those I know only Miyazaki and Bruce Timm, but I'll sure have some fun looking for works from the others ;)
I always find it fascinating, though, to compare inspiration and what becomes of it. So in short, you made my fangirlish little heart very enthusiastic :)

I love how accurately large you made Ghost. The small direwolves in both t.v. series and other art-work is a source of irritation for me. lol

You and me both! I've been told that they're going to CG them larger in the 2nd series...but we will see! I'll believe it when i see it!

If this is fanart, then:
1. It should be in the catagory 'fanart'
2. you shouldn't be selling prints of it (which is automatically enabled if it's in the category fanart)

Hi Jumei, Thanks for the feedback.

(I've not sold one print). Apologies if i've upset the Deviantart balance..
