Portrait of Jon Snow from Game of Thrones. Took around 2 hours or so. He was one of my favourites to read in ASOIF. His story maintained a good pace for me where others, who I'd previously enjoyed, kind of felt a little drifted
beautiful artwork as always~ i've watched your paintings from afar, but i surely enjoy all that i've seen :') keep it up, woman~~ *hug* i'm sure you'll make it to the imagineFX magazine, if you're still interested in that : )
i haven't watched GoT at all, but i'm a fan of John Snow and Ygritte, as i have stumbled upon dozens of pictures/memes about them. those make the little romantic in me raise it's head~ : p that said i'm too scared to watch GoT because i don't want my imaginations of them being shattered, and also.. i'm not really interested in anyone else except these two sweethearts : x
would be interesting to hear your opinion on GoT and those two : D without too much spoilers about their hardships.. ; )
Hello there, Long time no speak indeed. How lovely to hear from you! Hope you're well and Thank you very much I haven't submitted anything to them for a long time. Maybe I should give it another go.
I love Jon Snow and Ygritte too, They're almost certainly my favourite GoT pairing. They won't let you down, It's as you say, quite romantic. I would whole heartedly recommend that you give it a watch or even better read the books. If you're not much of a reader though the show is worth it. Very, very well cast, it has changed a few things but nothing too major, or that didn't make sense. You'll be hooked before you know it
it has surely been long time, right. hehee, i thought it was about time to come say hi :') my pleasure and thank you~! honestly, things are looking up, i'd say, hehee, i might have also met my 'Ygritte'.. :'p i surely do wish things have been and still are going well with you, too : o ahh right.. well, i think do you should give it a go indeed B )
*-* yeshhh, i'm so glad to hear that it wasn't just my imagination :'p although seeing only random pictures, i got a hunch they might be great pairing! awwh, how i wish there was book concentrating mostly on them.. :'o hmmm.. now that you mention the books.. i actually have the first book in my shelf, just haven't gotten around to read it o.o i do enjoy reading a good book on a cozy day every now and then, so maybe it's time i started reading it, ehh : p hmmm, i wonder how big of a character John Snow is in those books.. thrillers with some romance and possibly supernatural or extraordinary things are my favorite kind books, hehee : ) how about yours?
Well I'm glad that you did. It's nice to hear from you. Aw that's wonderful. I wish you all the happiness with your new found love Thank you, things are going very well indeed.
I would say go for it! I raced through them. You won't be able to stop once you've started. Jon Snow himself is a pretty big character. GRRM writes in different POV's throughout the books. each chapter is a different characters take on whatever's happening throughout the story. It makes for a nice read I find. I know what you mean about the cozy reads. I find myself reading a lot more throughout winter, shorter days and cold nights. We are pretty lucky that we have an open fire in our house so it gets extra cozy!
I like a good fantasy yarn myself. It doesn't have to be particularly high fantasy mind you for instance GoT has a few sprinkles of fantastical elements but it's largely about the political games and power play between houses. I am just nearing towards the end of the second Locke Lamora book (red seas under red skies, Scott Lynch) Which is an utterly brilliant series too. Terry Pratchett is also a pretty easy favourite. I enjoy anything written with a dark humour or a satirical tone and if it's coupled with the fantasy genre - I love it!
yeah, i have no regrets : D it's certainly good to hear from you too. hehee, thank you kindly. that's really good to hear, keep it up, will you : )
well then, i shall do just that! that does sound interesting~ i do like when the stories are told from the eyes of someone going through the events themselves : p mmhm.. you know what? i'm bit jealous here, for that sounds super cozy! i do have a thing for open fires; hearing the crackling of the wood when the flames gradually consume them, the way fire dances while doing so- the warmth.. just delightful! pair it with tasty drink and- *wipes away drool*
i don't think i have read high fantasy myself (tho i have no idea is Harry Potter considered high fantasy, i read one book of those : p), usually i choose books that are set in real world, historical or present, with twists like monsters or something. i however am interested in reading the GoT, i just wonder how much the political struggles keep my interest, but i guess there's much more to it than that. i do need to look up those series and writers up that you mentioned here. Terry Pratchett sounds familiar and i hear he's greatly praised. and just to mention, i do enjoy dark humour aswell : p
for myself the authors/series of choice at the moment would be: Stephen King, Carlos Ruiz Zafon (with his series that include 'Shadow of the Wind') and Justin Cronin (with series starting with 'The Passage')
