Direwolves in the snow by Gold-Seven Direwolves in the snow by Gold-Seven
'Lord Stark,' Jon said. It was strange to hear him call Father that, so formal. Bran looked at him with desperate hope. 'There are five pups,' he told Father. 'Three male, two female.'
'What of it, Jon?'
'You have five trueborn children,' Jon said. 'Three sons, two daughters. The direwolf is the sigil of your House. Your children were meant to have these pups, my lord.'
Bran saw his father's face change, saw the other men exchange glances. He loved Jon with all his heart at that moment. Even at seven, Bran understood what his brother had done. The count had come right only because Jon had omitted himself. He had included the girls, included even Rickon, the baby, but not the bastard who bore the surname Snow, the name that custom decreed be given to all those in the north unlucky enough to be born with no name of their own.'

from George R. R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Jon and Bran are adorable, I love the Stark kids... except for Sansa.

This is simply beautiful.

You should have put in this part as well, “The direwolf graces the banners of House Stark,” Jon pointed out. “I am no Stark, Father.”

Wow, this piece is old! I can really see a difference in your skill!

I got a shiver reading that excerpt. I can't wait to dive into Martin's books again. His writing style is divine.

I love that you included Ghost (that's his name, right?). Jon's expression looks ridiculous and I can't help but giggle! I'm sorry. :)

The story of the six wolves is sad and beautiful at the same time. It was all so fitting and then unfair crap happened and everything fell apart... Just like the Stark household (from what little I've read and heard).

Yes, these older pieces already have some nice thoughts, ideas and character, but lack precision and executive, I think. :)

Though I appreciate precision and execution, those are a lot easier to remedy than a poor outlook on art. I find imperfections beautiful (missing hands, for example ;)) and a lot of artists just try to make everything all shiney and perfect.

Ah yes, missing hands. I keep forgetting to draw those buggers. With some characters more than others. :D

Funny how I look through an artbook on the Song of Ice and Fire and a few of your artworks were featured in it.
Now I know who do them and why they look familiar! :)
